Cruise Planners Where2Next Virtual Event Series; Once Upon a River Cruise
During the latest Where2Next Virtual Event, Once Upon A River, Cruise Planners invited consumers to tour the world’s rivers with AmaWaterways, American Cruise Lines and Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection.
Michelle Fee Cruise Planners’ CEO and Founder discussed the variety of river cruise itineraries available for all types of travelers.
“Most of our future bookings (25%) are coming from river cruises and the pent-up consumer demand is trending high in this area and with limited inventory, even into late 2021. Savvy travelers are working with their travel advisor to get the best possible sailings, secure their cabins and lock in the best rates,” says Michelle Fee, CEO and Founder, Cruise Planners.
Types of River Cruises
River cruise itineraries are built around romance and relaxation, health and wellness, food and wine, history and adventure. River cruising is a great way to celebrate special life milestones such as romantic anniversaries and birthdays. There are endless options and river cruise lines offer tremendous value and high levels of service.
• AmaWaterways offers consumers the opportunity to sail through European rivers such as the Rhine, Danube and Rohne as well as itineraries that follow wildlife in their natural habitat in Africa.
• Uniworld offers itineraries in exotic destinations such as Cambodia, Vietnam and Egypt where travelers can sail on the Mekong and the Nile rivers.
• American Cruise Lines offers 35 national sailing opportunities throughout the US on the Mississippi, Columbia, and Snake rivers.
Why Cruise on a River?
River ships offer an intimate onboard ambiance and accommodate anywhere from 100 -250 guests depending on the ship size. Guests are pampered with excellent and personalized service from onboard staff. The ratio of crew to passengers is one to two people. Another reason travelers enjoy river cruises is the all-inclusive aspect where premium beverages and high-end cuisine prepared onboard by renowned chefs are part of the cruise fare. Shore excursions are also included with several options from sightseeing tours, biking tours, and foodie tours giving consumers an opportunity to try local cuisines from the destinations they visit. Consumers can easily immerse themselves in the destinations because river cruises dock in the heart of quaint towns, villages and even cosmopolitan cities. The embarkation and debarkation process are as simple as checking into a hotel.
