Passengers booking Cruises in the USA are up by 37% this year and our cruise agents are always so happy to answer the many questions our clients have! Here is a short list of things most cruisers DON’T know and why more and more people are choosing to stay here in the states to river cruise.


1. ALL passenger cruise ships sailing in the USA must be built in America (the Jones Act.)
2. Many of our small ships or boats have cabins just for single passengers.
3. Some of our boats can actually do shore landings, no docks needed.
4. Many of our cruises include gratuities, shore excursions, and drinks.
