Modern fleet of ships

Onboard, river cruise ships have undergone a transformation like never before. They’re bigger than ever, but still maintain that intimacy of a river ship. They’re more luxurious than ever, with spas and gyms, they’re designed for entertaining with rooftop infinity pools and cabanas and daybeds.

The cabins are designed to feel like you’re floating on the rivers, with balconies and windows that connect you with the life of the riverbanks. There’s attention to detail, while you are free to roam and explore, relax and unwind. Or pick up the pace and access the smaller hidden towns and villages that only river cruising gives you access to.

And then there’s the food… dining on the river has become more immersive than ever. Chefs hit the ground running in various ports, sourcing the freshest local ingredients. They are hand-selecting produce from local providers. And designing menus that are authentic to the regions and the cultures you’re sailing through.  Sounds delicious doesn’t it! Not to mention the wines that are sourced from the best vineyards this world has to offer.

The benefits of river cruising

When you think about the benefits that river cruising offers compared to the costs, the time and the energy wasted by land travel, you’ll be re-thinking river cruising in a heartbeat. There really is something so magical about waking up in a new region every morning, looking out your balcony window and knowing you have been transported to a new realm while you slept.

There is a reason why Aussies are flocking to river cruising with a new sense of enthusiasm. Firstly, it’s because we deserve it. Secondly, it’s because it’s phenomenal value for money. And thirdly, it’s because river cruising has never been a more fabulous form of travel, immersion, connection and adventure.

Here at Cruise Passenger, we’re confirmed river cruise fans and we can offer heaps of advice to help you on your journey.

We’ll be inviting you to events and giving you lots of chances to experience what river cruising is about.

Join us at The River Cruise Collective to broaden your mind and your bucketlist of where you will explore next.
