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:

I love working with Isle Travel for our Teams traveling overseas. Mark does such an amazing job at finding the best prices for our teams. We have been working with them for a number of years and have never been disappointed. Mark is always so helpful even with the simplest of questions. Keep up the great job Team!!!!!! I appreciate you!!!!!
