river-cruise-mississippiYour free time is precious. With all of the offerings available at USA River Cruises, it can be difficult to choose a destination. However, don’t let analysis-paralysis or fear of missing out keep you from the tour of your dreams! Here are five tips for helping you create the journey of a lifetime!

Review Your Bucket List

Have a list of must-dos for this life? If hearing the music of Louis Armstrong played on the Mississippi River on a balmy summer evening has been a lifelong dream, our Queen of the Mississippi Jazz Cruise may be for you! If, on the other hand, you’ve been yearning to visit Alaska since you picked up your first issue of National Geographic, one of our Alaska cruises is definitely your best choice.

Not obsessed with any particular region? That’s okay! Consider the type of climate you enjoy, and activities that light you up. Do you love hiking through lush forests, or sitting aboard the prow of a paddlewheeler, sipping world-class wine while listening to an expert describe its finer notes? Yep, we’ve got a cruise for that.

Choose Your Travel Mates

Are you planning a romantic journey for two, a ladies’ week away, or a boisterous excursion with the kids and grandkids? Our offerings include cruises with locations that stun and spellbind, like our recently-added Cultural Voyage to Cuba, perfect for pursuing new horizons with the one you love. Your kids and grandchildren will love our Thanksgiving tour aboard the American Queen, where you can gather round a table and give thanks together. By considering with whom you’ll be traveling, you’ll have a better idea of what destination would best serve you. Our river cruises are also excellent for anyone seeking a solo excursion, where you can touch base with yourself and load up on scope for the imagination.

Ready to Try Rail?

Our rail and sail cruises are some of the most popular we offer, and it’s no wonder. There’s no more exciting way to access America than via our stunning rail cars, which allow you to wine, dine, and watch the scenery go by, all from the comfort of a slow-moving train. Once you arrive at port, the second leg of your journey begins. Set sail aboard one of our small ships and explore new vistas via the sea!

Worldwide Options

USA River Cruises offers not just incredible trips throughout beautiful country, but international travel, as well! We are proud to offer international cruises that will inspire and intrigue. From Christmas markets to voyages to Norway and Italy, our cruises offer the very best small ship experiences, the world over! If Europe and Asia are places you hunger to explore, one of our tours may be right up your alley!

Deciding on a river cruise may seem daunting, but with a little soul searching, you’re sure to find the perfect excursion for you and your loved ones. Want a little extra guidance? Our cruise agents are well-versed in all of our offerings (they take our cruises and rail trips regularly) and can help you find exactly what you’re looking for. We have cruises based in the United States, as well as many popular international cruises, all featuring our world-famous small ships. Remember to book as far ahead as possible, as our cruises sell out quickly!
