Family Travel and River Cruising

Family Travel and River Cruising

Posted on February 17, 2017   •   Written by

In keeping with the ongoing and tremendous growth in the cruise industry, the demand for river cruises also continues to be on the rise. Popular among travelers to whom large, ocean-going cruise ships are not appealing, river cruising traditionally promises smoother water, slower speeds and, especially in recent years, improved accommodation, food, on-board entertainment and cultural activities and excursions.

The rising appeal of river cruising certainly holds true for family and multigenerational groups, too, who see in it all the advantages of all-inclusive resorts matched with the liberating feeling of travel to multiple destinations. More and more river cruise lines are therefore offering special family-focused sailings and ships designed to meet the needs of vacationers of all ages and interests.

      Fantastic information. We have only taken our children on small ocean cruise lines like Windstar and Seaborn, but we would love to take them on a river cruise.

    Great article. We have been wanting to do a river cruise with our teenagers and often hear that most cruises are geared toward the older crowd and parents. Good to know that there are some great options for families and include activities for kids.
