CASUAL AND FRIENDLY AMBIANCE

Something special happens when you step aboard a river vessel or small ship. The staff knows your name, your fellow passengers all share similar interests, your ship feels like a boutique hotel rather than a mega-resort, and you dock in the center of quaint villages and big cities. This is the art and beauty of a voyage curated just for you by Select Waterways.

Our vacations are intimate experiences. On a river vessel, you’ll be traveling with only 120 to 190 other guests and on a small ship, anywhere from 100 to 400. There are no overwhelming rooms that hold 2,000 passengers, no neon lights flashing in a 10-deck atrium, no waterslides, go-kart tracks, laser tag, ice skating rinks or surf machines. This is not a megaship. This is a river cruise or a small ship adventure.

THE DESTINATION IS THE DESTINATION

You won’t be vacationing with 5,000 other people but, rather, sharing your experience with only a few dozen other travelers who have chosen this particular trip for the same reasons you have. They are there to sip champagne along the Loire, gaze at castles on the Rhine, get to know America along the Mississippi, uncover history on the Columbia, explore Russia along the Volga, admire nature along the coast of Alaska, or slip into cozy coves on the Mediterranean.

LIFELONG FRIENDS

It’s easy to make friends in our style of cruising. Your floating boutique hotel glides from port to port and each day you have similar adventures as those with whom you are traveling. Share stories of the opera in Vienna, the museums of Amsterdam, the bourbon distillery in Kentucky, the exotic scenery along the Yangtze or the wine-pairing dinner in Bratislava.

COMFORTABLE BUT INDULGENT SURROUNDINGS

Public spaces are more akin to private living rooms and parlors, and to a bed and breakfast in size and comfort. Come and go as you please, sampling a latte or mug of hot chocolate and a fresh pastry during the day and savory hors d’oeuvres or delicate canapés in the evening. Sip a cocktail before dinner with new friends or go for a nightly swim under the stars in the pool. Spa treatments and, in some cases, fitness classes and equipment are also available.

BARELY A RIPPLE

If you’re worried about motion sickness, there’s no need. A river cruise is operated entirely on placid waterways with no discernible motion whatsoever. Most small ship voyages hug the coastline and stay away from the open ocean. Mal de mer is rare on a Select Waterways vacation.

insidertip

Make friends. The smaller the ship, the more unique the experience and the more specific the itinerary. That means everyone aboard has chosen this vacation for the same reasons you have. You’ll quickly find you have much in common with your fellow travelers, far more than guests aboard an ocean-going 5,000-passenger megaship. Some of our closest lifelong friends are people we’ve met on our cruises.
