For many centuries the world’s mighty rivers have been traversed to trade, explore and at times, to conquer. Steeped in history and culture and flowing through diverse scenery, they often form links between great and beautiful cities from the medieval to the modern.
Sitting on the deck or your private balcony watching the world go is so wonderfully relaxing and entertaining at the same time. This is the way to see the throbbing heart of a country, stopping in at large and small ports usually right in the hub of the city centres. And with a much smaller number of passengers than aboard a conventional cruise, it’s a great opportunity to meet new people.
The rivers of Europe, Asia, USA, South America and Egypt are filled with cruise companies. We have highlighted just two companies here - the first being Riviera Travel who are lesser known in Australia, and Cruiseco’s own Cruiseco Adventurer which cruises on the Mekong between Cambodia and Vietnam.
Riviera Travel are a well established UK based company with years of experience in the market. Their four and five star fleet is a young one with delicious cuisine well balanced with included sightseeing programmes.
Cruiseco have been operating their Mekong Cruises for a number of years and built up a reputation for providing an experience of good quality at reasonable pricing.
