River cruising is one of the most relaxing ways to explore the world. With smaller ships, you'll be able to dock in cities even when larger ships can't, and your destination is always in sight. It's a little slice of paradise!
Double Your Leisure Time - The slower pace of river cruising allows for more free time. Take a dip in the sun-deck pool, relax with a soothing massage or watch the scenery glide by with a glass of wine in hand – moments to experience as you wish.
Client Satisfaction: River cruises enjoy one of the highest client satisfaction ratings of any vacation product. The dining, accommodations, service and itineraries are at the same level as the premium and luxury ocean going cruises, yet offer a much more intimate experience. The ability to experience interior rivers that lead to some of the world's most dramatic cities, picturesque villages, castles and unique cultures in comfort without having to pack and unpack as one would have to do on a land based motor coach tour make river cruising a very satisfying way to explore countries worldwide.
World Wide Itineraries: While it is best to specialize in river cruises that you are quite knowledgeable about, river cruises are found on practically every river world wide. Of course, European river cruises represent a large portion of the river cruise market, but China, Asia, Russia, North and South America, Africa, the Nile and Australia all offer a diversity of river cruise opportunities.
Group Friendly: Many of the river cruise lines start their group programs with just 10 people. This makes booking and promoting groups quite productive. Expect group amenities such as a complimentary cabin, on board credits, shore excursions for your group exclusively with a minimum number of participants and so on.
Solo River Cruisers: Many of the river cruise lines do not charge single supplements like the ocean going lines do or have cabins designed specifically for single travelers. This makes river cruises an exceptional value for your single clients that still want to cruise.
River Cruises are Inclusive: Sure the price point is much higher than a mass-market ocean cruise but river cruising inclusive nature makes them an unbeatable value. Instead of a four-figure account to pay at the end of an ocean cruise, river cruisers have nominal charges.
River Cruises are Intimate: Because of the limits in ship size because of low bridges and the length and width of locks the maximum number of passengers on a river cruise is never more than 200 and most are about 160 or so. This makes getting to know fellow passengers quite easy. You will be with them dining, in the lounge, on tour and generally during the cruise. Best of all, the staff will get to know you well too.
Motion Sickness is Not an Issue: Because cruising on a river never involves turbulence, passengers that suffer from motion sickness are perfect for a river cruise.
River Cruises are Casual: There is no need for a tuxedo, or even a tie. Some men will wear a sports coat at the Captain's "Welcome Aboard" and "Farewell" dinners, but most will just wear shirts with a collar or polo shirts.
Itineraries: River cruises only cruise a few hundred miles and explore a region in depth. There are worldwide itineraries available for one to explore.
Dock in the Heart of a Port: River cruises generally dock right in the epicenter of a port so that one can walk off the ship and start exploring immediately.
Cultural Based Shore Excursions: River cruises provide cultural immersion in the regions that they operate. It is the very best way to explore a region and understand its history and people.
Mass Market Cruisers: Clients who love cruising the largest ships because they love the entertainment, diversity of restaurants, gambling, kid's programs and such would not make viable river cruise clients.
Young Families: Families with young children who find the lack of things for the kids to do would not like river cruises
Those with Mobile Disabilities: River cruise ships are not ADA compliant and most river cruise destinations are also not ADA compliant.
River cruises have the perfect blend of cruising and ports. River cruising is all about taking in the sights along the river and exploring fascinating cities and villages while in port. It is not uncommon to visit more than one port a day on a river cruise with cruising the river and its ambiance midday.
Passenger Load: Ocean going cruises have something for everyone and as a result also has a very diverse passenger load.
River cruises tend to draw an older crowd that are well traveled and sophisticated. While the trend is towards expanding the market to include multi-generational and millennial channels, for the most part look for an older (55+) passenger load on a river cruise.
River cruises dock right in the heart of the city or village they are visiting, usually within easy walking distance to the epicenter of the port. Disembarking in a port is as easy as walking off the ship. Virtually all river cruises also include a walking tour of each port included in the price of the cruise itself. But, there may be an occasional additional shore excursion for an extra fee made available on a river cruise.
River cruises don't cruise TO anywhere, they cruise IN destinations. This is a huge difference. River cruises are more like escorted motor coach tours that explore destinations only you are on a ship enjoying a 360 degree view of the area, not on a motor coach stretching to see out of your window. Just about everywhere there is a navigable river, there is a river cruise exploring its region.
