If you’re the type of person who prefers to vacation at a large resort that has everything you want and you don’t have to leave, you’ll probably prefer an ocean cruise. But if you’re someone who likes to spend your vacation exploring new places while also enjoying the benefits of a luxury hotel then a river or expedition cruise is the way to go.
Let B Smart Travel find the perfect Cruise Vacation for you!
Size & Number of Passengers
River cruise longboats are smaller than ocean cruise ship. The difference in ship size means that there will be fewer passengers on river cruises, which generally accommodate around 200 passengers, while ocean cruises often carry thousands.
As a result of the size difference, ocean cruises are able to house on-deck pools and other activities like rock walls and water slides. River cruises, on the other hand, are generally smaller so have less on board amenities.
In terms of demographics, river cruisers tend to be slightly older than ocean cruisers. And river cruises tend to be more of a cultural experience than ocean cruises.
Though kids are allowed on most river cruises, there is less for them to do, so there are generally fewer children on board.
Ocean cruises offer experiences for all ages and for larger number of passengers. This also means that the demographics vary greatly on each cruise ship. Let us help research to find the perfect cruise.
Entertainment & Spas
On ocean cruises, you’ll often find a variety of shows and performances, from comedy, to song and dance performances, to magic shows. You’ll also likely have a casino and a variety of bars and lounges on board.
On a river cruise, the entertainment is much more low key. Local musicians will often come aboard while the ship is at port or the cruise might host a cultural program meant to enrich your travel experience.
Though the live entertainment is quite different, both ocean and river cruises generally have spas on board no matter which option you choose.
On an ocean cruise you will generally spend one or two days at sea in between ports. When you do dock at a port on an ocean cruise, a wide variety of excursions will be available which vary depending on where you’re cruising.
On river cruises, you’ll often visit a larger number ports, traveling to a new destination each night. This means you’ll spend more time on land than on the boat itself. When at port, river cruises tend to offer cultural experiences and walking tours, or you can choose to explore the city you’re visiting on your own.
An expedition cruise is unlike any other form of cruising — they are thrilling, awe-inspiring and humbling all at the same time. You travel to the most remote regions of the planet and get to see them intimately. Expedition cruises are for the curious traveller who longs to see a blue booby in the wild or what lies behind the next mountain ridge.
And it’s not just about wildlife. It’s about immersing yourself in the culture, landscape and habitat of a region with the help of experts who can enlighten all you see.
On both river and ocean cruises, you can expect great food. Ocean cruises offer a variety of cuisine options and dining experiences from fine dining to buffet and snack bars. River cruises typically only have one or two dining rooms aboard and offer cuisine that is local to your destinations.
Often river cruise chefs will pick up fresh ingredients at local markets at ports so they can offer unique local cuisine fare.
