Written by Lisa Baldridge

By now you have most likely heard about river cruising.  The relaxing alternative to seeing several destinations while the convenience of only having to unpack once.

With options in Europe, Russia, Asia or Egypt the ever changing unique scenery of the river gives you the chance to explore the great cities like Paris, St. Petersburg, Beijing and Cairo
while finding the amazing small, lesser known areas like Rüdesheim, Uglich, Shibaozhai and Edfu.
You can enjoy the smaller ship atmosphere with no worry of crowded decks, dining areas or lounges. Shore tours are less like “cattle calls” to get off the ship and more like an adventure with a new group of friends.  The lower ratio gives you the opportunity to get to enjoy yourself more while receiving more personal attention while on board.
