HOLIDAY HOTLINE: Discover the wonders of river cruising

By Spalding Today Columnist

River cruising is all about experiencing something new, discovering hidden gems and unexpected treasures. Experience popular destinations from a different perspective, without having to plan, plot or even re-pack a suitcase.

It’s not too difficult to see why river cruising trips have grown in popularity. What better way to soak up some of the most beautiful and iconic destinations, than slowly passing by from the comfort of a ship? The chance to flow gently into the heart of some of the most beautiful cities and towns in the world makes for a luxurious and romantic experience.

Shore excursions are typically included on a river cruise, allowing you to not only view these destinations from a distance, but experience the culture of the area through tours and sightseeing, all included in the price of your cruise. Smaller ships mean you can access smaller ports to discover pretty coastal towns and narrow canals. Sailing between countries without the hassle of customs, flight terminals or local taxis makes it possible to see and do more each day.

There are a wide variety of ships and cruise styles to suit all budgets and tastes. Sail along some of the idyllic waterways in Europe like the Danube or the Rhine, edged by grand cities and quiet wine regions. Or travel a little further to enjoy a spectacular cruise along the Nile, or to the most iconic waterway in the US, the mighty Mississippi River. Enjoy fine-dining and local cuisine on board from a new destination each day. For a more luxurious experience, many ships offer the luxuries of a five star hotel, including private balconies, onboard spas and butler service.
