Insider's Guide: River Cruise Offers Information, Tips, and Deals

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 9, 2015) - River cruising has quickly become one of the hottest trends in travel -- but there are still some uncertainties among travelers about what the experience entails.

Your Travel Insider and Luxury Cruise News have released the Insider's Guide: River Cruise, a digital magazine offering an up-close look at the river cruise experience, from what's included in your fare to what you can expect onboard and in port. Inside, readers will even find a first-hand account of river cruising, details on specific river cruise lines, and special offers for booking a river cruise of their own.

"River and small ship cruising is dominating the market as the hottest, 'must-experience' travel style," says Patrick Clark, managing director of Avalon Waterways. "Small-ship cruising offers big benefits including a more intimate, inclusive vacation experience that takes travelers into the little villages and ports found in the heart of each country."

"Any traveler who hasn't yet discovered river cruising will want to after reading this guide," says Angela Vogel, publisher of Your Travel Insider and Luxury Cruise News. "Feedback from our readers has shown that they don't always understand the excellent value of river cruising and how many amenities and tours are included in the experience. We want to make sure consumers understand the product, and can make informed choices about traveling not just to Europe, but other rivers around the world as well."
