All the best from River Cruises

European and Worldwide River Cruises are becoming more popular as clients are looking to explore places around the world from its door step. As it is mostly about the places to visit, if you are purely interested in the destinations alongside getting nice meals and good service then this is the type of holiday for you.  Since many cities developed and expanded from their Rivers the advantage of a river cruise is that you will stop right in the centre of the location you are going to, allowing guests to spend longer in each place and maximize the time for sightseeing. Not to forget some river cruise companies include all the excursions and all the drinks on board or just during the meals. Also, most river cruises include the gratuities so there is no need to tip extra, it’s a nice peace of mind to know there isn’t going to be a huge bill at the end of your holiday. Usually the ship is in port during the evening giving guests the possibility to get off again after dinner and have another stroll if they wish to. I would compare river cruising with the boutique type accommodation/holiday but with the advantage of seeing lots more places. Always be careful when choosing your cruise, some ships are nicer than others just like any other cruise or hotel

How Popular are Cruise and Maritime

Cruise and Maritime is becoming more and more popular since the launch of their last few ships and since they have started promoting they sailing with some incredible special offers. They are proving to offer a good all round service on nice clean comfortable ships with interesting itineraries at an incredible value for money. Most of their cruises sail from Tilbury which is an added bonus as it cuts down travelling time as it is an easy port to get to for most. They are a relatively small company with small ships sailing from local ports and not Southampton. They don’t tend to attract many families due to lack of facilities for children. Cruise and Maritime is ideal for adults or families with teenagers.
