A river cruise allows for a more intimate experience as well. Because most of these ships accommodate only 30 to 200 guests, it is easier to meet your traveling companions. You can share a drink with the couple you met on the day’s tour or dine with interesting passengers in an open-seating restaurant. Another benefit: you can also forget about waiting in long lines to embark, debark, or have a meal. These river cruises are immensely popular and keep growing. Many lines have begun adding amenities previously restricted to ocean cruise lines, such as French balconies attached to the rooms.

Expedition cruise lines typically attract seekers of adventure and unusual thrills. These lines have very unique and exotic destinations such as the Galapagos Islands, Antarctica , and Greenland. Expedition cruises tend to focus on very isolated scenery or wildlife up-close and personal. On an expedition line, you will undergo a multitude of new experiences—new cultures, new foods, and new smells—as all of your senses are awakened and you commune with nature. The amenities range from simple accommodations to ultra-luxury environments.
