Benefits of Group River Cruises

One of the best ways to visit many destinations is by taking a river cruise. There’s nothing quite like bringing a group of your closest friends together. Traveling by river is an enriching and rewarding experience that everyone should experience at least once. Here are some benefits of group river cruises extending far beyond shared experiences.

Making Group Travel Decisions

If you enjoy traveling but hate planning, then traveling with a group is the perfect solution for you. Just imagine going on the vacation of a lifetime with all of your best friends, and the only decision you have to make is what to pack in your bag. Simply tag along without making all the decisions yourself.

When you’re with a group, you don’t have to decide any of that if you don’t want to, which can make group travel your best option.

Group Savings

Group river cruises mean you’re also eligible for group discounts, which you wouldn’t get otherwise. In addition to these discounts, additional perks are usually negotiated. For example, you may choose to have shipboard credits, a complimentary dinner, or a bottle of wine in your room for your group.

River Cruise Inclusions

Shore excursions are not included in ocean cruises, but they are included in river cruises. Each has its advantages, but the advantage of traveling in a group is that private excursions can be arranged for your group.

Try Something New

Traveling with a group of people can push you to try things you would never do on your own. For instance, ordering a dish on the menu in Hungary that you can’t quite pronounce. It forces you out of your comfort zone and allows you to discover new things while making the most of your river cruise.


River Cruise Ships bring the culture aboard from various cities you visit with lively performances and dance. Alternatively, if you and your group enjoy wine, your ship might offer a wine-tasting room to enjoy each region's best.

The Experience

Perhaps the best part about traveling as a group is sharing all of your greatest travel moments with some of your closest friends. Whether you’re traveling in a group of three or eight, there is always room for more!

You’ll be amazed at how quickly you connect with new people while biking through a quaint European city or touring a medieval castle.

Traveling allows people to bond through new experiences in a way that you wouldn’t normally do at home. Sharing these experiences will also help strengthen bonds between you and your group that will last long after the cruise is over.

Gather a group of your friends and set sail for an unforgettable adventure. Give me a call or schedule your free consultation to discuss your group’s river cruise.
