Becoming more and more popular, a river cruise is an immerse and destination-focused vacation experience, on a small and luxurious vessel.
River cruises sail through the inland waterways of some of the world's most interesting vacation destinations (i.e. Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and North America), and provide their guests with a greater opportunity to spend time visiting more unique ports of call than a traditional cruise typically would.
Because the destination is the star of a river cruise, (typically guided) shore excursions are included at no additional charge by many River cruise lines. There are usually many interesting lectures given during the cruise, by experts on the history and culture of the region being visited.
Among the famous rivers that one may take a river cruise on are the Rhine, Mississippi, Seine, Danube, Mekong, Nile, Yangtze, Amazon and Douro.
These cruise lines fit (quality and, usually, price-wise) somewhere in between Premium and Luxury cruise lines.
A country club casual atmosphere can be expected on these lines, as can be elegant accommodations and gourmet cuisine. These cruise lines are a great option for adults looking for a upscale, yet laid back, vacation.
Unique itineraries are often available on these cruise lines, as their small-to-mid-sized ships can visit ports of call that large ones can't get to.
The pricing on Azamara Club Cruises includes select beverages and pre-paid gratuities, while the pricing of Viking Ocean Cruises includes shore excursions and select beverages.
These cruise lines offer a truly unique vacation experience, with a wide range of possible amenities and itineraries. Some are expedition cruise lines, others have sailing yachts or are coastal ships.
On these types of cruise lines, there's usually a focus on a specific destination or theme. Itineraries are usually very destination intensive, aided by the fact that they're able to reach many ports of call that larger ships can't.
Expedition cruise lines are a great fit for adventure-seeking travelers, featuring exciting destinations like the Galapagos Islands, Antarctica, and the Norwegian coast. During the cruise, there will usually be plenty of interesting lectures given by experts on the destination being visited. Often, shore excursions are included in the cost of the cruise. In fact, some of these cruise lines have all-inclusive pricing. There's a definite focus on the ship's surrounding scenery, as well as opportunities to view wildlife in their natural habitat. Small, but comfortable, ships are commonplace here, with anywhere from basic to very luxurious public spaces, cuisine, and accommodations (depending on the cruise line and ship).
Sailing Yachts, sail-assisted motor ships, offer a really unique vacation experience. Accommodations and cuisine on these intimate vessels can be anywhere from good to fantastic, depending on the cruise line. Destinations offered by these cruise lines may include the Caribbean, Europe, Panama Canal, Tahiti, and Costa Rica.
When the finest cruise vacation is your top priority, this is the place to start.
On a luxury cruise line, guests experience highly personalized service, a more intimate (and usually formal) onboard experience, gourmet cuisine, well-appointed accommodations, and fantastic amenities. Many of these brands have smaller ships, allowing them to reach ports of call that the larger ships can't, which results in unique itineraries.
All of these brands feature a version of all-inclusive pricing, and some of them have ships with all-suite accommodations. Although these cruise lines are usually more expensive than the rest, they also provide their guests with so much more, resulting in a fantastic value when considering all that's included.
These are just a few of the more popular tourist attractions in Siem Reap, along with a brief description:
♦ Angkor Watt
Sometimes called the Crown Jewel of Siem Reap, Angkor Watt is a must-do before or after any cruise from Siem Reap. This incredible temple complex is so huge that it is easily a half-day trip, if not a full-day excursion. This attraction can get rather crowded by mid-day, so you might opt to get up just before dawn to enjoy it during a beautiful sunrise. You may consider booking a guided tour, as this temple is so enormous that it is easy to get lost and miss out on some of its best features. Of course, you can always choose a self-guided tour if you wish.
♦ Kandal Village
While visiting Siem Reap’s 15th century French Quarter, hop on a three-wheeled taxi and ride into Kandal Village, where you can explore a couple of charming boutiques with many wonderful souvenirs to browse. Among the many cafes, pubs, and boutiques, you can also admire some French Colonial architecture, art galleries, handicrafts and more. There are even a couple of spa facilities if you are in the mood to truly treat yourself.
♦ Angkor Thom
Angkor Thom is another can’t-miss temple when you are cruising from Siem Reap. This historic city served as the last capital of the Khmer Empire, located just west of the Siem Reap River. As soon as you come upon this magnificent temple, you will be greeted by its towering entrance. Depending on the itinerary, many cruise lines offer tours of Angkor Thom as part of a shore excursion, although you can opt to tour this temple on your own.
