It’s a slow mode of transportation, but that can be a good thing when you’re exploring lands rich in beauty and history. In addition to big cities, a cruise can showcase areas along the way, delving into a country’s core: the villages, castles, and countryside along the waterways that gave life to its civilization. You can find cultural treasures—a town square at Christmastime, a centuries-old abbey, a floating market in Thailand, or ancient Egyptian temple—without having to be your own navigator. You avoid extra flights, hotels, and lines. And some cruises sail at night, saving time to experience more nature or culture. Cruises offer a similar gamut of accommodations to hotels. Compared to ships at sea, a river vessel is a very smooth ride, allowing you to appreciate the unfolding panorama.

Very informative. I think this kind of travel package is good for retirees who have time and money. The millennials wouldn't mind backpacks and hostels at all...a lot of hassles but cheaper!!!

Este vídeo é simplesmente fantástico!! Que. perspectivas tão diversas e o importante papel dos rios nas cidades, pessoas...O fascínio da comunicação...pergunto-me qual componente do espírito de um rio mais se prende ....onde o rio nasce, ou o mar onde se sublima?...sem ele nunca seria ligado com a componente humana que se revela afinal como um todo...acho que vi uma paisagem cá das nossas!!!

Speak for yourself and don't tell me what we Germans do, ok? BTW: What was the name of that navigable river in Hawaii again?
Darian Ramlochan (15 days ago)
Dagobert Duck they do this all over the world, Hawaii is a shark hot spot cause of this
Dagobert Duck (15 days ago)
That may be true in your country, but certainly not here in Germany. All our rivers and streams have almost drinking water quality (and that's exactly what it is used for in wide parts of Germany).

Never saw boat cruises this way. Great video to show a different perspective on cruises and boat rides. Thanks for sharing National Geographic.
