In 2022, the river cruise market is likely to reach a valuation of US$1.45 billion. The demand for river cruises is expected to increase sharply over the next few years.

River cruisers are smaller in size in order to move smoothly through rivers and shallow waters. These cruises provide leisurely exploration of different cities, towns, villages and some areas where larger ships cannot travel. River cruises offer a relaxed and intimate experience. This contributes to the increase in river cruise sales. However, the overall experience of a river cruise is far less grand than the experience of an ocean cruise.

A river cruise has some advantages, such as no hassle of packing and unpacking due to hotel changes, less chance of motion sickness as the land is always inside the site, and no extra hassle of planning travel activities as it is taken care of once the cruise is booked. With the cruise’s small size, the traveler can also enjoy a tight-knit affair. Additionally, many river cruises also offer personalized services from the crew. All these assets have a positive influence on the river cruise market.
