River cruising has risen dramatically in popularity over recent years. This type of cruising offers a number of advantages and very unique destinations to experience, over other regular cruise holidays.
With river cruises there are usually fewer hidden surprise costs to endure, compared to other holidays. It is very common that the majority of costs are included within the original price of the holiday. Most river cruise lines offer at least one excursion per day – within the price.
There’s always something to see when sailing on a river with incredible views on each side. Sailing along scenic rivers is a lovely, relaxing way to spend a holiday. Speeds are not fast, so there’s plenty of time to relax and take in the surrounding views.
Sizes of rooms are of course smaller than those on an ocean cruise liner, but river cruise lines like Avalon Waterways use the space effectively to create a generous comfortable room size.
These come complete with floor-to-ceiling sliding windows which open up to give you a 7 foot opening, with beds facing the view!
Distances between ports on rivers are much shorter than the ports of typical ocean cruises. Therefore, you will often dock at a different unique location each day.
Now more than ever, river cruises are becoming centered around special themes. Cruise themes such as regional culinary items, wine-tasting tours, and sports like golf, health and wellness, music oriented and so on.
