River Cruises

River cruise ships with accommodation facilities offer longer cruises.

According to Douglas Ward, "A river cruise represents life in the slow lane, sailing along at a gentle pace, soaking up the scenery, with plentiful opportunities to explore riverside towns and cities en route. It is a supremely calming experience, an antidote to the pressures of life in a fast-paced world, in surroundings that are comfortable without being fussy or pretentious, with good food and enjoyable company."[5]

Differences between river and ocean cruises:

Mark was super conscientious when he set up a multiple leg, multiple stop-over trip for me to explore ministry options. I loved hearing his friendly, upbeat voice whenever I needed to have information about my trip.
