I started working for Fred.\ River Cruises at the beginning of the year, however previously I have worked for Uniworld, Scenic and Emerald Waterways, so I have had several years working in the river cruising industry. Prior to that I worked on ocean cruise lines such as Hurtigruten and Norwegian Cruise Line, however now my passion is river cruising and the wonderful experiences that you can enjoy whilst sailing along the rivers of the world.
I think that some rivers such as the Rhine and Danube are really about historical cities, so sometimes are great ones to start with, especially if you have never done a river cruise before, as you get to see such grand cities as Vienna and Budapest. Other rivers such as those in France and along the Douro, offer more about the scenery, food and wine and also have very little overnight sailing, so sometimes clients who want to be a little more relaxed might prefer these. River cruising is also a great way to see lots of different places and on some of the long haul destinations such as the Mekong, river cruising is the best way to see the more rural areas of Vietnam & Cambodia.
