River cruising—a better way to explore

Comfortable, convenient and safe, it offers a greater variety of destinations than you could not encounter any other way—and lets you get in-depth exposure to the culture and history of each region. Both experienced and first-time travelers have discovered the joys of river cruising, making it the fastest-growing segment of the cruising industry.

Also known as “boutique cruising,”  the most popular North America cruise brands are:  AMAWaterways, Avalon, Uniword and Viking River Cruises.

River cruising offers a more intimate experience compared to mass market cruise ships.

Because River ships are designed to accommodate between 150 and 300 guests ( most being 150-185), it is easy to make new friends, share a drink with the couple you met on the day’s tour, or dine with interesting people in the open-seating restaurant.
