Special features of a river trip
River cruises differ significantly from the usual cruises on the high seas. Not only do you drive past constantly changing spectacular landscapes, but you also benefit from another advantage. You will be spared seasickness because the ship is not exposed to waves and therefore does not begin to rock.
The main focus of a river trip is less on entertainment on board and much more on exploring the country. Depending on the river trip, you will be offered exciting shore excursions, informative lectures by experts and the support of a local tour guide.
Most ships have a capacity of 30 to 250 passengers, so you can quickly get in touch with other travelers and feel comfortable in a family atmosphere.
