A River cruise is defined as a voyage along inland waterways, often stopping at multiple ports along the way. River cruises are a unique experience in cruising reaching places that the larger cruise ships can not. Ships or vessels are no larger than 38-by-410-foot dimensions to meet the requirements of assorted locks and bridges the vessels must past through. River cruises are considered a luxury cruise category with very high service standards and staff to passenger ratios. These cruises offer an intimate look at the destinations and passages between them. You learn all about the history and culture of the sights you see.
Some of the fascinating destinations a river cruise can take you:
Europe: Travel along the Rhine, Danube, Seine, Elbe and other great rivers of western, central and eastern Europe
Russia and Ukraine: Travel along the Dnieper from Kiev to Odessa.
China: Highlights of Beijing, Shanghai, and/or Xian and the Yangtze River
