Shorter duration: River cruises tend to be much shorter than a traditional cruise making them the perfect type of cruise for beginners. If you’re unsure about whether you’ll enjoy the motion of being on a cruise or just whether or not cruising is for you, a river cruise is the perfect type to try.
Visit several countries in a few days: A river cruise gives you the opportunity to visit a few different countries in a short period of time. It also has a very relaxed atmosphere. You get to see all the countries you’d like to visit without having to constantly switch your accommodation.
Amazing views: River cruising is a wonderful way to see the world. Sailing through waterways surrounded by stunning landmarks, natural scenery and incredible buildings, you’ll be able to see parts of the world as you’ve never seen before while enjoying their incredible beauty from the comfort of your ship.
Smaller ships: As river cruises have to go under locks and small bridges, they have to be much smaller in size. This is one of the best perks to river cruising; much smaller and more intimate ships. With much less passengers, you can avoid huge crowds, easily meet new people and not have to walk far to go back to your suite.
Casual: Some people avoid cruising as they don’t enjoy attending the formal nights and the strict dining arrangements. With river cruising, the overall vibe is much more laid-back and casual, with open seating at meal times and casual dress at all times.
