River Cruising is a completely different experience than that of a big ocean cruise. While most people feel that river cruising is less affordable than an ocean cruise, if you’re interested in river cruising and seeing great parts of the Amazon, the Galapagos, Europe, or Asia, it actually can be quite affordable.
Studies have been done showing that when you take an ocean cruise, add excursions, alcoholic and soft drink purchases, specialty dining, and other incidentals on your account, the experience of a river cruise is actually quite comparable price wise.
