Familiar, exotic and adventurous: 10 best river cruises for retirees announced by Topretirements.com
Topretirements.com, a site that helps baby boomers and millennials find their best retirement, just released a list of the top 10 retirement river cruises. Among others, choices include the familiar (steamboat on the Mississippi), the exotic (the Douro River in Portugal), the historic (retrace Lewis and Clark’s voyage on the Columbia), and the adventurous (float in the Grand Canyon).
There are 3 domestic voyages that have ranked in the top 10 river cruises. Seven are international, ranging from the Danube in Europe to the Mekong in Asia. Along with their selections, the popular website includes links to a wide range of companies that offer these types of tours. Some are extremely luxurious, offering exceptional food and service, while others offer a more basic package where local sights or adventure are the focus.
John Brady, founder of www.Topretirements.com, explained why river cruises are a great retirement adventure: “Too many people only consider one or two cruise lines they’ve heard of, and leave a lot of possibilities on Table.” If they dig a little deeper, there is actually a vast universe of tour operators that can provide a much more personalized and personalized experience. Some companies combine a biking or walking adventure with a cruise, or have the option of timing the trip to coincide with a local festival or optimal season. On very large rivers like the Mississippi, cruisers can explore a favorite part of the river.
