River Cruising Is Not Just For Europe Anymore

Contrary to popular belief, river cruising is not exclusive to Europe. Most of the world’s great cities have emerged along the shores of mighty rivers and today river cruising has expanded to travel the world’s great rivers.

There are also river cruises in the USA and South America, with routes along the Mississippi and the Amazon rivers. River cruises offer the opportunity to explore territory which is often thought of as the remit of backpackers, in a luxurious relaxed, leisurely and safe way.

Thankfully, this is all changing with cruise lines featuring celebrity chef experiences, cooking classes and on-shore culinary excursions.
