When River Cruising your ship will dock in the center of cities that have been there for hundreds of years and rich in history and culture.

When your port, there are small guided tours by local experts  included in your experience that will help you feel more connected with the destination. You'll also have some free time at each destination where you can shop or even take a bike ride through the city or along the river.

Which River Cruise company is the best?

“Best” like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.  What do we mean?  You need to decide what's most important to you!  Sure you can read articles and look at lists, but travel is personal. You can call the various cruise lines direct, but they want you to book with their brand. If you ask around, you'll find some people love one company then you talk to someone else and they are just as passionate about another company. The good thing about using Dock 10 Travel is we are not loyal to any brand. Our loyalty is with you the client. 


Here’s a few things we discuss with our clients when they  considering which River Cruise company:

The Ship:  It’s the core of the experience.  Many different River Cruise Lines have different ships and some are even geared towards the destination.  Some of the questions to ask would be how long has the ship been out?  What makes this ship different from the other cruise lines?  When was it last brought in for refurbishment?

The Culinary Experience:  One of the reasons we travel is to experience new things.  Food is the best way to immerse yourself in a culture.  Will the food choices be geared towards the destinations?

The Staff:   If you done any cruising before you know how the staff can make the experience. 


The Value  Ultimately, most travelers want to feel they got what they paid for.  Was the trip expensive but worth it?  Did it meet your expectations?
