River cruises offer memorable journeys through some of the world’s prettiest cities and towns. They give you a mind blowing experience as you travel through the cities staying close to the nature. River cruising is your best option if you really want a calm, relaxing holiday.  It is a lot different from an open water cruise as travelling through the oceans are vast and you hardly have the land view.  And hey!!! The journey on an open-water cruise at times gets interrupted with heavy waves which might turn out to be a mood spoiler.  Let me pick a few reasons why you should experience indulgent river cruises and why a river cruise would make a good option on your holiday planner.

A. Plenty Of Options

Not only do you get the best of river cruise options available but also they have them reviewed with people who have already experienced it.

B. Paint as you move

You have such beautiful scenic views around, as can be seen in Rhine River, that it will just make you paint your way out.

C. Taste of the Culture 

River cruises are very creative that they sometimes design your ships blending the taste of the local culture. So learning starts right from the ship you embark upon. As you travel you can sense the culture of the city or town and that adds knowledge about the place without having to read any books or even talking to the local people.

D. Smaller Ships 

You get the feeling that you are on the best trip ever. The ships are small and carry a few people on board. This helps you have some private moments and thoughts. You will have plenty of time to relax and enjoy the journey.

E. God’s Own Country 

These Voyages will be everlasting on your minds. The soothing breeze and the calm rivers just sweep your mind away from all thoughts and make you poised. They do not make you feel hectic and spoil the pleasure of your Voyage. Instead they keep you calm and enjoy your cruising experience to the fullest (image by U-Turn Gil).
