River Cruises for Seniors


Like many others, did you think that cruising could only happen in the oceans? Welcome to the exciting world of river cruises!

Cruising does not always mean that you have to set sail in to the deep waters of the Pacific or the Mediterranean in huge luxury vessels. A smaller but interesting version of cruising is river cruising. River cruises are perfect for closer interaction with the natives of a place, and to look at other cultures closely.

Similar to traditional ocean cruising, river cruises for seniors are an ideal way to travel to several exciting countries in a short span of time.

Sail along the Hudson River, or meander down the River Tames in England, or simply cruise down the Nile in Egypt to view the majestic and exotic pyramids. There are many certified cruise operators in the US selling cruises on river ships and barges. Some of the most popular river cruise agencies in the US are:

  • Abercrombie and Kent
  • Amadeus Waterways River Cruises
  • Arosa
  • Avalon Waterways
  • Brendan River Cruises
  • Majestic America Line
