World's Best Rivers for Cruises

See this list before you book a cruise at sea


Cruise trips are definitely an adventure. You are stranded on a ship for days with no way of going home if you suddenly think that being surrounded by nothing but water is a bit unsettling.

The good news is that you won’t ever get to that point because river cruises are quite different than those at sea or the ocean, which some people may never want to take.[slideshow:83594] 

You probably won’t get sea-sick because there are no waves; you always see land on the horizons, which is comforting; and you get to be on land in a different city almost every day. Also, the ships are usually smaller, which means there are fewer tourists on them.

Whether you are in the U.S., Europe, Asia or Africa, there is a river worth exploring. Companies have realized the potential of such trips and offer cruise itineraries that fit anyone’s budget (here are dollar-friendly destinations to consider) and vacation time.
