Let’s face it, these days when it comes to holidays, people tend to prefer loud and brash locations full of rowdy holiday makers who have consumed far too much alcohol and as a result tend to make real fools of themselves. If the thought of taking a holiday full of drunken rowdy holiday makers, and insanely loud music, fills you with feelings of dread and despair, then perhaps you might want to think about taking a river cruise instead. River cruises are now all the rage, and for good reason too. River cruises allow you to see the world, whilst relaxing in tranquil and peaceful surroundings on board luxurious cruise ships. There are now more tranquil river cruise holidays being booked annually than ever before. If you’ve been thinking about taking a river cruise holiday, here are four reasons why we’d highly recommend it.
You get to see the world
River cruises are quickly becoming just as popular as sea cruises, and as a result more and more horizons are being explored and more options opened up. River cruises are especially popular in Europe, and as a result, river cruise holiday makers get the opportunity to see the world and see all of the best that Europe has to offer. You’re not on board the ship all of the time, so you have plenty of time to explore your surroundings.
The ships themselves are stunning
Obviously this all depends on whom you choose to book your cruise with but for the most part, river cruise boats are designed and created to the very highest of standards, and this shows on the inside and the out. People tend to think that river cruise boats are going to be small pokey things when in reality they’re absolutely enormous and more than big enough to provide guests with plenty of space.
You can see some natural wonders
Again, this depends on whom you book with and where you go but if you book wisely, you get the chance to revel in some of the most breathtaking natural wonders that you’ll ever likely experience in your lifetime. Take river cruises down the Baltic for example, at the right time of year and with the right surroundings, you get the opportunity to marvel over stunning wildlife and potentially even the Northern Lights, or the Aurora Borealis as they’re more commonly known.
You get to sample different foods and drinks
If you happen to be a foodie that absolutely adores the finest foods and drinks, you’re going to be in your element on a river cruise holiday. You will constantly be able to sample the finest foods you could ever dream of but on top of that, you also get the opportunity to sample a vast selection of exotic foods that you ordinarily would never dream of tasting. Be prepared however, very few people have embarked on river cruise holidays and returned without gaining weight, but that’s what makes it so much fun.
