River cruise vacations offer a unique vantage point on cruising—and the country. Smaller vessels offer more personal, intimate travel experiences with all the same great amenities of ocean cruising like excellent meals, entertainment and activities. Traveling along the river on a smaller ship also means you are a closer to land and the changing panoramas that are the colorful backdrop of your vacation.
