River cruising is continuing it’s growth in 2017, with a dozen brand-new river cruise ships scheduled to entering service on Europe’s rivers.

Portugal’s Douro River, is becoming Europe’s most up and coming river destination. The Douro River is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

River cruising has traditionally appealed to mature couples, hence most of Europe’s river ships mainly offer double or twin cabins.

However CroisiEurope’s river vessels have some triples and quads cabins, on board some of its ships, with children being welcome.

AmaWaterways’ new AmaKristina will feature triple-occupancy cabins in order to appeal to multi-generational families.

AmaWaterways’ has a partnership with ‘Disney’ in order to appeal to families with kids and persuade them to take a river cruise.

We may well see some river cruise products in the future which are a little more mainstream.

I would certainly welcome a more diverse range of river products and fares.
