Even if you’re a regular visitor to these blog pages, you may not know about our sister brand, RiverVoyages.com – the UK’s river cruising specialist. A river cruise offers you a very different type of cruise holiday and RiverVoyages.com brings you the very best choice of itineraries and offers.
The river cruise experience
A river cruise is a unique way to see a number of the world’s most inspiring cities and areas of interest. The principle of travelling to a new port each day – just as you would on an ocean cruise – is the same, but with a river cruise you’ll be able to experience a host of destinations far inland.
With a river cruise, there’s no coach transfer to your destinations as you’re already cruising right through them. Your scenery changes day by day and there’s always something new to see, whether you’re in port or not. Rolling valleys, sweeping forests and plunging gorges can all form part of your constant river cruise backdrop.
As for your ship, river cruises offer a more intimate cruising experience, with vessels typically catering for between 150 and 300 guests. You’ll soon get to know your fellow passengers and dine with them in elegant restaurants which serve delicious menus of mouth-watering locally-sourced cuisine.
Where you can go on a river cruise
River cruises explore Europe’s most famous waterways. A Rhine cruise will see you sailing through the stunning Rhine Valley, where idyllic countryside and majestic castles are all part of the scenery. A Danube cruise will give you the opportunity to explore such historic cities as Vienna and Budapest and you can sail France’s Seine from Paris or take a trip through Russian history on a Volga voyage. The Yangtze, meanwhile, is your gateway to many of China’s most spectacular cities and ancient wonders such as Shanghai, Beijing, the beautiful Three Gorges and the world-famous Terracotta Warriors of Xian.
