Uniworld Boutique River Cruises – S.S. Catherine
Half the fun of the river cruise is sitting on the top deck and looking at the scenery and cities that you are viewing along the way. Some companies cruise at night so that you can dock and explore cities and others like to cruise for the bulk of the day and then dock in the afternoon/evening so you can spend the evening exploring the cities. The rivers are much smoother than the oceans so you don’t need to worry about getting sea sick. When the river cruise docks at it’s location, you are in the heart of the city. There’s no waiting in lines for a ride to get to shore, you just walk off and begin your excursions.
This intimate way of cruising is quite different from sailing on a large cruise ship. Most of these river ships average 130 passengers per sailing. The average age of the river cruiser used to be 55+, but we’re seeing this age drop as many 40 somethings and honeymooners are entering the market. Several summer cruises and holiday cruises even offer sailings for families.
Each river ship is decorated lavishly. The stateroom bathrooms are often made of materials such as marble. Some ships even have swimming pools.
For the ultimate in pampering, try a suite as you will have a sitting room in your suite and extra amenities. The spa treatments and food are some of the best in the world.
