Comparing a 7 Night Cruise of the Danube May 20 2023
Which river cruise company should I use?
Have you always wanted to go on a river cruise but don’t know where to start? Many people immediately think of Viking River Cruises because they send so many advertisements. But there are several other fabulous river cruise line companies with which you can enjoy a meander through multiple countries. But of course, that makes it even more difficult, because how do you know which one to choose?
Talking to a travel advisor can help.
My first suggestion would be to talk to a travel advisor. Part of our job is to try out the different cruise lines (tough job, I know!), so that when a client wants to cruise, we know which ones to suggest to them. After talking to you about your preferences and the things you want to do and see, we can narrow it down from 10 or so cruise lines to 2 or 3.
How can a travel advisor help?
So now you’re wondering, “Have you been on all of the different companies river cruises?” Not yet, but I’m on a forum with hundreds of my fellow travel agents and if I don’t know something, one of them does.
Good travel advisors also know which questions to ask to help determine which river cruise lines are best for you. If you go on the internet and ask “Which river cruise line is the best?” You’ll get a multitude of different answers – and the answers will be which cruise line was best for the other person, not for YOU.
What’s wrong with just going with the cheapest river cruise?
Many first time river cruisers are mainly concerned about price. This is normal. It’s a chunk of change to go on a river cruise. But it’s very hard to compare apples to apples when looking at the different websites. That’s why I’ve created a comparison of Viking River Cruises and AmaWaterways.
Here are some images for comparison also.
I can help you narrow down the choice of which river cruise line is best for your needs and then we can talk about which river cruise itself would be best for you. Give me a call or send me an email. My contact info is here: Contact Kathie
