Riverboat Cruising has become more and more popular in the recent years. Small luxurious riverboats usually accommodate a maximum of 200 guests to provide an intimate cruising experience. These smaller boutique ships have all of the amenities onboard that you would need to make you feel at home. Most importantly, these cruises allow passengers to get close-up and personal to the local culture since you can cruise inland.
