Book a Beautiful Scenic River Cruise
Recent years have seen the steady rise in popularity of river boat cruises. Europe, Asia, and Africa attract many cruise enthusiasts who have discovered that river cruises offer a more destination-oriented experience than their ocean-combing counterparts. The river cruise is also becoming a favorite among those looking for a cost-effective alternative to land packages.
The best river cruise lines offer destination-intensive journeys; they rarely include "days at sea." Due to the small passenger load of most ships, shore excursions can be very intimate experiences, allowing you to sample local culture up close. European river cruises may take you down the Rhine or Danube, into the heart of Provence or the Loire Valley, and around Russia's sprawling countryside. While in China, the Yangtze invites even the most well-traveled guests to discover new and exotic landscapes.
