Updated: Jan 21


Planning a vacation with a group of your closest friends or family for a special event like an annual family reunion or vow renewal should be a fun process. Mapping out all of the places you want to visit and thinking about the fantastic food you'll eat is all part of the experience. Your travel advisor takes the guesswork out of planning group sailings, leaving you with time to plan for the things you enjoy. With a fleet of award-winning river cruise ships and a slew of itineraries suited to your group's every need, you can trust that you're in good hands.


Here are the benefits of group river cruising for your next memorable occasion trip!


When it comes to keeping your group happy, excellent accommodations are at the top of the must-have list. This is why cruise lines have designed their ships with elegantly appointed staterooms and suites that everyone will love. Some ship offer more than 50% ultra-spacious suite accommodations with full balconies that are perfect for ocean cruisers who are new to river cruising. For a room with a view, some ship’s offer guests signature enhancing twin-balcony staterooms and a comfortable place to relax in private and take in the views as the ship glides down the river.


Food easily rivals accommodations as an essential factor in keeping your group happy. Lucky for you, you don't have to wait for the next town to find delicious fresh and authentic dishes. The cruise line boasts unique restaurants on board, including venues with retractable windows and outdoor seating that are always cooking up dishes inspired by the local cuisine.


A cruise down the Danube River will take you through Austria, Germany, Hungary, and Slovakia with an extensive line up of included excursions for each port of call to guide you around the destination. While in Krems, join the Dürnstein Apricots and Sweets tour where you can indulge in local delights, and the next day, venture to Salzburg, where you will pass by the famous Mozart House. With so many different options at each stop, it is easy for everyone in your group to find something they will enjoy.


At the end of the day, your group can meet back on board the ship and take advantage of the sun-deck pool and whirlpool, where you can enjoy a cocktail and share stories from the day. If you need a little break from the group, head for the expansive wellness spa to relax and recharge with a massage or spin with a view before dinner.
