But who goes on a river cruise on the continent?
In many ways, it feels wrong to compare an ocean cruise with a river cruise but with it being such a unique concept, it is also important to outline how they differ from each other.
While an ocean cruise has several destinations on any itinerary, they always stop in a port which is often quite a distance from the centre of town. On the contrary, a river cruise will usually leave you right on the doorstep of the main attractions with little more to do, than step of the boat.
River Cruises also seem to be attracting a slightly different clientele, travellers who tried ocean cruising and want something different or most often, travellers who would rather feel immersed in a destination rather than sit in a casino halfway out to sea. Either way, river cruising is a slow journey, which manages to avoid all the noise and escape from all the crowds.
You can forget about waiting in line with hundreds of fellow cruisers or strategizing as to when you can sit down for meals. River Cruises have a convenient setup to accommodate every passenger, at any time, while the river is not the ocean so you can also forget about the prospect of seasickness.
The hidden value on CroisiEurope River Cruises
Lastly, CroisiEurope River Cruises have outdone their peers by offering the same experience at a fraction of the cost. In fact, with so much included in the cost of a river cruise, you will find genuine value for your money.
Furthermore, while most river cruises (NOT CroisiEurope) may still be priced quite a bit higher than the standard ocean cruise, the true value of a river cruise is more intrinsic in a sense that you are investing in a different experience, with a personal touch and the perfect way to combine a destination with the truly unique aspect of this kind of experience – life on the river.
