I’ve been working in the River Cruise team since it launched in September 2016. I took 10 months off maternity leave and have loved coming back to learn more about this diverse and ever-growing area within the travel industry.
On a River Cruise you receive a personal service with the ships being much smaller and intimate. There are a wide variety of River cruise Products out there now that there really is something to suit everyone and it is great value for money. Mooring in the heart of the towns and cities is real a highlight and you visit a variety of destinations enabling you to explore them on your own, an organised excursion or many companies now even offer the opportunities to see these destinations by bicycle.
I have sailed with Amadeus River Cruises on the Rhine and also on a number of Amawaterways across the Rhine, Danube and the Belgium Waterways so have been lucky to experience high class quality products with exceptional service.
The Rhine & Danube Rivers, especially for first time River cruisers as they offer a wide range of towns and cities to enjoy and some beautiful scenery to take in.
I was lucky enough to sail the Rhine a few summers ago. We had fantastic weather and enjoyed relaxing on the sundeck with a drink in hand whilst sailing through the picturesque Rhine Gorge, past all the castles and the famous Lorelai Rock. During this trip, we also participated in the cycling excursion along the river bank and up into the vineyards - which was a fantastic and unique experience with some amazing scenery to take in and a wonderful way to explore this region.
Personal service and great knowledge from our reservations team, as we have over 25 years of river cruise experience between us.
