River cruises are set to dominate travel this year, as major river cruise companies are now unveiling new ships, and revamping versions of older ships. Europe seems to be a popular choice for river cruising enthusiasts if booking numbers released by Cruise Holidays are to be believed. A river cruise is surely the best way to view the wonders of Europe.
“ Come July, Viking River Cruises’ ship, the “Viking Legend” will set sail on an 8 day romantic voyage on the Danube River. The sailings are expected to start at $1,656 per person, but rates are likely to differ if you were to book through a cruise travel agency. With passenger strength of 188, the cruise vacation is perfect for people preferring a more personalized cruising experience,” says Colleen Turner, of Cruise Holidays, a cruise travel agency that has arranged some of the best European cruises.
Itineraries and onboard activities on river cruises are designed with care and consideration. Unlike ocean cruises that cater to thousands of travelers on board, a river cruise generally travels with less than 300 passengers. The focus is more on the fascinating ports of call, and the river scenery that passes by the ship. Onboard activities can include guest lectures by musicians, wine experts, renowned chefs, and historians. Activities are planned carefully to avoid the traveler being overwhelmed by these activities.
If you’re looking for the best cruise line deals, make sure you’ve considered all options. While the internet offers discounts, they are incomparable to the deals offered by cruise travel agents. Besides offering the best cruise prices in Seattle, cruise travel experts have travelled on most cruise lines and can help you with a firsthand account of the experience on these cruise lines.
