I just wanted to thank you [Jeremy] for the wonderful trip that you arranged for us, there is no way that it could have been more perfect. Perfect trip for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Thank you so much. — Connie F.

River cruises are gaining in popularity for many reasons. Here are, we’re excited about the changes that so many people are finding exciting and inviting.

  • Most river cruise lines are no longer charging extra for singles.
  • River cruises are a great deal because they are all-inclusive! Enjoy complimentary wine, beer, and bottled drinks. Themed cruises often have special destination-related entertainment, lecturers on relevant topics, wine tastings, and included excursions.
  • Guests enjoy gourmet quality meals. On theme river cruises you may get cooking lessons with the chef, and get to food-shop in the local markets.
  • Cruise ships are smaller and offer a more intimate atmosphere, which is perfect for making lasting new friendships. A smaller size means the river cruise lines can take their ships into any size port.
  • Staterooms are smaller than on ocean cruisers, but they are just as comfortable and modern. You may choose a room with a window or a balcony, and you will have spectacular views.
  • You’ll always have a beautiful view on a river cruise. No matter where you are on your ship, your views will be countryside, small villages, cities, and even other types of boats on the river. You will not see just water surrounding you. There’s always a picture to take, and that’s why photographer’s love river cruises.
  • Most of the cruising is during the night, so you get to spend days visiting ports and on excursions. Since the cruise docks right in the heart of many villages and cities, you can walk and explore on your own as well as join in group activities.

Here at we look forward to assisting folks with booking their river cruises. People get excited when they see how much fun they are going to have!
