FAQs about
River Cruising

What is river cruising?

River cruising has been an increasingly popular form of leisure travel in recent years. River cruises are one-week or longer, overnight passenger cruises on vessels that range in size from a small four-passenger canal barge to the largest passenger river vessel afloat.

Why take a river cruise?

Taking a river cruise is a win-win situation for you. Many of the world's most exciting and historical cities are located on rivers; river ships generally dock right in the heart of a town or village, centrally placing you where all the sights are within moments of disembarking the ship.

What is the difference between a river cruise and a barge cruise?

Really, the two basic differences are size and cruising area. Because barges operate on smaller tributaries and rivers, they are very restricted as to their size. Therefore, barges carry fewer passengers, generally not more than a couple of dozen — and that only on a few of the larger barges.

How many passengers will be on board?

The number of passengers range by region and cruise line but usually accommodates from 30 passengers up to 180 passengers.

Will there be entertainment on board?

Local, authentic entertainment may be offered during the cruise but can’t be counted on each evening while you are aboard.
