8 Occasions to Celebrate on a River Cruise

if you’re anything like me, you like to visit the same spots over again.

Every year on my birthday, I ask for the same pink champagne cake from the same local bakery down the street because I know it’s delicious and my family LOVES it.

Are you the same way?

Maybe you and your partner celebrate every anniversary at the same restaurant year after year for the same exact reason: the food is delicious and you know you’re going to love it.

Or maybe you get together at your grandmother’s house for your annual family reunion every year because it’s become a tradition, and well, why break tradition?

🌎But when there’s SO much to see and experience around the world, why not take advantage of the opportunities we have in this lifetime?

I want you to take a minute and think: are there any big milestones coming up in the next year that you’re excited to celebrate? Instead of taking another trip to Disneyland or booking a room at the same all-inclusive resort you know and love, why not relax with a river cruise?

River cruises are an amazing way to see multiple cities in just ONE trip without exerting too much energy (or spending more money!) going from hotel to hotel or city to city.

From the lush vineyards of France to the exciting plains of Africa, there’s a river cruise that will take you anywhere you want to go.

Did you think about my question? If you can’t think of any big milestones coming up, here are 5 occasions to celebrate this year with a river cruise…


→ Planning a wedding is exhausting, and on your honeymoon all you want to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy time with your spouse! But if laying around on a sunny beach and sipping piña coladas for 7-14 days doesn’t sound ideal, a river cruise might be a better fit.

→If you and your partner prefer to explore a city filled with beautiful architecture, rich history, plenty of incredible food, and a variety of locally-grown wines to sample, a river cruise gives you the best of both worlds because you can be as active or as relaxed as you want to be!

🥂 Anniversary

→ You and your partner work SO hard every single day to raise your kids, take care of your pets, get your work done, pay the bills, and everything else that needs to be done to keep your home in order and running smoothly.

→ When your anniversary rolls around, it’s easy to reserve a table at your favorite restaurant (again!), but as you both get older and realize how limited your time is together, why not book a romantic getaway?

→ Getting older can make it a little harder to get around, but don’t let that keep you from exploring the world! With a river cruise, you don’t have to worry about the hassle of getting on and off planes, catching trains, renting cars, packing and unpacking as you settle from one hotel into another…

→ Once you step aboard a river cruise, you unpack only once and also get to experience multiple cities, cuisines, and locations all from the comfort of your ship.

🎊Family Reunion

→ Everyone I know is sending a sample of their saliva off in the mail to find out more about their ancestry (sorry for getting a little graphic there!). Have you gotten your 23 and Me results yet?

→ If you recently found out about your family origins, this could be a great opportunity to take a family trip to learn more about your history!

→ Do you have German ancestry? Cruise down the Rhine River and sample all the hearty and savory German dishes waiting for you. Or maybe you have ancestry from South America, Asia, or Africa. With a river cruise, you can connect with your heritage and learn more about where your family is from.

🎓High School Graduation

→ Your 18 year-old is probably either excited to register to vote, get a job, and experience the world as an adult…OR they’re constantly hunched over their phone, headphones on, scrolling through TikTok for the 27th time today with no patience to listen to a word you say.

→ Either way, this is a great time to connect with your child before they leave the nest with an unforgettable trip that will enrich their life with history, culture, and adventure.

🎂 Milestone Birthday

→ You shouldn’t have to stress over coordinating your next milestone birthday. You deserve to sit back and enjoy your special day instead of sending out invitations, asking for RSVPs, making reservations, ordering food, setting up decorations, and more.

→ Instead, let yourself be taken care of and enjoy first-class service, 5-star meals, and great wine surrounded by your loved ones on a river cruise. Whether you’re thrill seeker or just want to lay on the deck and enjoy the view, there’s a river cruise for you.

But remember, you don’t need a special occasion to celebrate! It’s always a good time to rest, recharge, and see the world. With a travel advisor like me, we can work together to coordinate a river cruise to celebrate the next big event in your life with a special trip you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
