River Cruise: River cruises sail on inland waterways, such as rivers and smaller water bodies. These cruises typically follow a fixed route along rivers like the Danube, Rhine, Nile, or Mekong, and they often stop at various ports and cities along the way.


Sea Cruise: Sea cruises, on the other hand, take place on open seas and larger oceans, offering a vast expanse of water to explore. These cruises often have multiple destinations, but their primary focus is on the destinations themselves, with days spent at sea in between ports.


River Cruise: River cruises provide a close and intimate view of landscapes, passing through picturesque towns, scenic vineyards, and historical landmarks. The focus is more on exploring specific regions and cultural experiences along the riverbanks.



Sea Cruise: Sea cruises offer breathtaking views of the open ocean, with opportunities to visit diverse coastal cities and islands. The emphasis is often on destination variety and the different cultures, cuisines, and sights that can be experienced at each port of call.

Vessel Size

River Cruise: River cruise ships are smaller and more intimate, carrying a limited number of passengers (usually a few hundred). This creates a relaxed and social atmosphere onboard, with a greater opportunity to interact with fellow travelers and staff.

Sea Cruise: Sea cruise ships can vary significantly in size, from mid-sized vessels to massive floating resorts that can accommodate thousands of passengers. They offer a wider array of amenities, entertainment options, and facilities, providing a more diverse onboard experience.


River Cruise: River cruises generally have smoother waters, with less noticeable motion due to the sheltered nature of river travel. Motion sickness is rare on river cruises.

Sea Cruise: Sea cruises can encounter rough seas, especially during inclement weather or when crossing open waters. Some passengers may experience motion sickness, but modern cruise ships are equipped with stabilizers to minimize this effect.

By following these three steps, you'll be well on your way to selecting the perfect sea cruise that aligns with your preferences, ensuring an unforgettable and enriching journey along picturesque waterways.  


Let's start planning.

 STEP 1 
Defining Your Preferences and Interests

We'll begin by identifying your travel preferences and interests. Considering factors such as destination, duration of the cruise, onboard amenities, activities, and the type of experience you desire.


Are you drawn to historical cities, charming villages, or breathtaking landscapes?

Do you want an active adventure with shore excursions like hiking and biking, or a more leisurely trip with cultural immersion and fine dining?


Getting to know what you want will help narrow down the options.

Researching River Cruise Itineraries and Operators

Once I have a clear vision of your ideal river cruise experience, I'll research different itineraries and cruise operators that match to you.


I only work with reputable cruise lines that offer routes matching your desired destinations and pay close attention to the ports of call, shore excursions offered, and the level of service provided.


I make my recommendations based on my own personal experiences, as well as testimonials from previous travelers to gauge the overall satisfaction and quality of the cruise experience.

In the end, the decision is yours, but I will make sure you have the tools to make the best one for you!

Comparing Pricing and Inclusions & Promotions

As we narrow down your choices, I'll compare the prices and inclusions of the river cruises that meet your criteria.


I will provide you with comparisons of what each package includes, such as accommodation, meals, excursions, onboard entertainment, and any additional amenities; bring mindful to point out hidden costs and optional extras.


Once we consider the overall value and the level of comfort and service and maximizing your budget, we'll lock in your cabin reservation and start planning the extras like flights and land tours before and after your cruise.


Discover the World, One Wave at a Time

"Cruising has two pleasures. To go out in wider waters from a sheltered place and to go into a sheltered place from wider waters." - Howard Bloomfield

Out on those wider waters, the world feels grander and more majestic. Nature's spectacle surrounds us, reminding us of our place in the vastness of the universe. We immerse ourselves in the rhythms of the waves, the salt-kissed breeze, and the dazzling hues of the sky and sea. It's a moment of freedom, of escape from the confines of daily life, and an opportunity to connect with nature on a profound level.




With 65 river cruises already taken in the past ten years (and 16 more currently booked), there is nowhere to sail that the River Cruise King can't share tremendous insight while helping you plan a magical trip. In fact, our little black book is bursting with possibilities and magical moments yet to be had. As our friends say, "Dave has never met a stranger,"and  the same goes with places that we visit.

Our close personal relationships - from the crew onboard to the cruise & hotel managers to the folks in the corporate offices - means that no matter where in the world you are or want to go you will be treated with extra special attention as River Cruise King guests; turning your simple river cruise into a magical journey.

Lastly, as an American living in Europe for over 25 years in Germany and now Spain, my services bridge cultural divides that many agents don't even consider; helping you avoid the pitfalls of international travel with ease.


With a keen understanding of your expectations, along with a firm grasp of local realities, together we'll create a truly immersive experience full of authentic and endearing moments.

Then we'll do it all over again somewhere new the following year!
