What does a river cruise mean to you?

For some, it could mean plying the waters of Europe and seeing the Fairytale Castles perched intermittently atop the sprawling hills of the Rhine river valley.  

For others, it could mean visiting the small, local villages of Vietnam, interacting with the school children or riding a rickshaw through the crazy streets of Hanoi.  Or possibly seeing the impressive UNESCO World Heritage Site of Angkor Wat in Cambodia.

Yes, you can do that to!  

As a novice ocean cruiser would tend to begin their cruise career in the Caribbean, most beginner river cruisers will start with either the Rhine or the Danube.  And these are absolutely the best places to start. But, don’t be so naive as to think your cruising career will end there. There is so much more to discover beyond these magnificent European rivers.  A river cruise invites you to see our world without politics or borders. 

If you are looking for the “next big thing” in river cruising, you will not be disappointed to hear how much more of the world you can see from the top deck of a river cruise.

Here are some more ideas to get the creative juices flowing for your next river cruise adventure:

  • The Douro through Portugal and Spain
  • The Po through Northern Italy
  • The Seine, the Rhone and The Dordogne in France
  • The Irawaddy in Myanmar
  • The Ganges in India
  • The Mekong in Cambodia and Vietnam
  • The Imperial Waterways of Russia
  • The Chobe River in Namibia
  • The Amazon in South America
  • The Nile in Egypt
  • And closer to home - the Colombia and Snake rivers
  •  Don’t forget the mighty Mississippi river too!

There is virtually no end to what you can experience traveling through the spectacular rivers of our planet.  I urge you to contact us to find out more about how you can experience your next river cruise.

Amazing trip!

Reviewed By Penny - San Antonio | Traveled to Europe
Emma is wonderful and so easy to work with! She is very responsive to our needs and always has great advice or suggestions for our trips we would never have thought of on our own. We have worked with her for many years and she knows our travel style, where we have been and where we still would like to visit. Having an agent who knows us so well makes the planning process easy, and she will share any cruise itinerary with us she knows we will be interested in without any pressure. We have recommended her to all of our friends and family who feel the same way.

From newbies to seasoned cruisers in a year!

Reviewed By Eileen F. - Haverstraw, NY | Traveled to Caribbean
Emma Cakmak has been our go-to travel advisor for many years now. She has planned multiple trips for us, from European tours to Caribbean cruises, as well as anniversary and retirement trips. Emma is adept at getting to know our preferences and, with her help, we have been building a travel "bucket list." When we had to cancel a trip at the last minute for a medical issue, Emma assisted us in providing all the information we needed to properly access our travel insurance. We appreciate her quick response time to inquiries and the way she touches base before and after trips, always valuing our feedback. In one case, she shared our poor experience with a particular tour company, which led to a partial refund and apology from the company. The personal attention we receive from Emma is unparalleled, and we recommend her services without hesitation. Just be careful - our wanderlust and her swift responses and ability to find great deals have led to four trips in less than a year!
