River vs Ocean Cruising: Similarities & Differences

For more than twenty years Mel and I have sailed on hundreds of cruises. Until last month all our voyages were on ocean-going cruise ships. For the first time, we embarked on a different cruise style—a river cruise from Antwerp, Belgium to Amsterdam, the Netherlands aboard Vantage Deluxe World Travel’s new River Splendor.

Our river cruise was a short preview sailing, but it was long enough for us to get a taste of river cruising and to note similarities and differences between it and a typical mainstream ocean cruise. Not surprising, our river cruise included many features we have only found in the past on high end premium or luxury cruise ships.

Welcome aboard River Splendor to take a look at River vs Ocean Cruising with Cruise Diva.
