2. Easy, hassle-free travel
Without the hassle of packing and unpacking your suitcase, and driving from one location to another, you can just focus on the most important thing, relaxing. With a river cruise, you only need to unpack once. This gives you more time to sit back, relax and embrace the stunning scenery surrounding you. There’s also no need to worry about getting to and from the ship during your cruise, as most cruise lines include overseas transfers! Without the stress of a standard holiday, you can relax as the staff takes care of everything whilst you are on board.
