River Cruises, primarily in Europe, have exploded in popularity in recent years and there is a very good reason: They are WONDERFUL! As we have mentioned in past posts, they carry between 130 to 190 guests and dock in the heart of the city in many ports of call. A very good industry friend told us “on an ocean cruise, you cruise TO a country; on a river cruise, you cruise THROUGH a country“. Simple observation, but yet so true.
So we take July as River Cruise Month for several reasons….
- Now is the best time to book for next year, 2017; river cruises fill far in advance
- Most lines have advance booking discounts which will expire soon
- Crystal River Cruises has their inaugural cruise in July; an exciting, new product
This month we’ll be sending out examples of special offers for River Cruises, but we’ll also be sending out some photos and observations on our own past River Cruises. Watch for more posts and remember to THINK RIVER CRUISES all month long!!!
