Quiz | Which River Cruise Line Is Right For You?

Whether you're new to the idea of river cruising or you've been on one or two before, we know it can be difficult choosing a cruise line, let alone an itinerary!

River cruising is still a growing trend and not everybody is familiar with the many choices of river cruise operators. We've probably all seen the TV commercials for Viking River Cruises, perhaps even Riviera Travel. But it's rare that you'll be able to list all the different cruise lines, never mind understand their differences!

Is there a big difference between each river cruise line?

In short, their ships are all a similar size - because of the nature of a river cruise, sailing narrow rivers, and navigating locks, the ships are restricted to certain widths and heights. There are of course varying star ratings, some riverboats are more superior than others and some river cruise lines are more inclusive than others.

But rather than going into full detail of each river cruise operator, we've created a quick, free & easy quiz to determine which river cruise line would best suit your preferences!
