Your River Cruise Questions Answered – by Yours Truly!

Any one who has followed my Blog over the years knows that my favourite type of cruising is river cruising.  I did my first river cruise about 6 years ago, the first of many, and I have never looked back. It ticks all the boxes for me, small ships, friendly staff and passengers, fabulous scenery all day every day, and being docked right in the centre of which ever city you are visiting so no long transfers, not to mention fabulous food!

I just find that I enjoy these cruises so much more than any cruise I have been on at sea. I know it’s horses for courses, each to their own, I don’t need rock climbing walls and flowriders, 14 different dining options and two dozen bars/ lounges to choose from each evening – I can’t make a decision which to settle for. Give me a river ship with one restaurant, one lounge, a Sun Deck, some friendly people and a Gin n Tonic and I’m happy 🙂

Having experienced so many river cruises, sailing with several different river cruise lines, I have a fantastic in depth knowledge of river cruising, what it includes, and the difference between the various companies. I love sharing my knowledge with colleagues and clients alike to help them choose the best river cruise for them, although I sometimes worry that I ‘over-sell’ river cruising as I love it so much! What’s not to love?

It is a totally different experience to Ocean Cruising and cannot really be compared, but it is an experience that I love- and so many rivers out there to be sailed along! If you haven’t tried it you really should give it a go.

I recently recorded a short film which hopefully will answer some of your questions if you are new to river cruising so why not take a look at the video above, it should help, and if you still have unanswered questions please give me a call on my Freephone number 0800 408 6084 or email me at I will be more than happy to help you.

For now, Happy Cruising Folks!
