River Cruise Lines

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.

Luxury Cruise Lines

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.

Specialty Cruise Lines

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.

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.

Deluxe Cruise Lines

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.

Their ships are usually anywhere from mid-sized to very large "mega" ships, accommodating thousands of guests. These ships give the feel of being in a large resort.

Mainstream cruise lines are a great option for just about everyone (including multi-generation families, and first-time cruisers), and typically have great youth programs.

During the cruise, entertainment may include Broadway productions, Vegas-style shows, comedians, and music. Some of these lines have select formal nights during the cruise.

Things to do near Amsterdam, The Netherlands

These are just a few of the more popular tourist attractions in Amsterdam, along with a brief description:

♦ Canal Boat Cruises

There’s nothing more romantic about Amsterdam than a canal boat cruise! Plus, it’s a great way to take in the city’s history, landmarks, and scenery. A typical canal cruise takes about an hour and will transport you throughout Amsterdam’s famous canal ring. Some tour companies even provide you with the option to “jump-on/jump-off” so you can really get a hands-on adventure. There are many different kinds of canal cruises that you can take, so it’s best to do some research before arriving in Amsterdam to make sure you get the type of experience you desire.

♦ Rijksmuseum

This is one of the most famous museums in Europe, and a must-visit during any trip to Amsterdam. The main highlights of this gallery feature Dutch art and history. It is also located in close proximity to other museums (for instance, the Van Gogh and Stedelijk Museum), making it easy to visit all museums in one day. When visiting, you’ll be able to view over 8,000 artifacts, including some of the most famous paintings in the world, like Rembrandt’s “Night Watch.”

♦ The Red-Light District

The Red-Light District (or De Wallen) is one of the most famous neighborhoods in Amsterdam, best known for its risqué entertainment. Many travelers visit this neighborhood to learn about its fascinating history. A tour of the neighborhood (which is the safest way to explore) will get you a “behind-the-scenes” look at some of the clubs, and a stop at the museum where you can learn even more through an audio tour.
