European Cruises: Travel Sector Analysis & Perspective

European Cruises: Travel Sector Analysis & Perspective Overview

European cruises can be of two types – European river cruises or cruising the continent’s coastline by a large ocean liner or a cruiser. In both the types, the traveller gets to know about the rich historical and cultural heritage of Europe and its scenic beauty. Travellers can choose to roam the vast coastline of Europe and explore the Mediterranean Cruises, Northern European Cruises, Greek Isles cruises, Scandinavia, Russia and Norwegian Fjords cruises, British Isles, and Iceland cruises. The travellers can also explore the inland waterways and rivers of Europe and can choose to explore the Danube River Cruises, Rhine River Cruises, Main River Cruises, Moselle River Cruises, Seine River Cruises, Rhône River Cruises and Saône River Cruises.

European Cruises: Drivers and Restraints

European cruises are gaining in popularity and there is a huge interest in exploring the European interior and coastline through novel ways of river cruising or travelling the coastline of the continent in a large transatlantic ocean liner. As more and more international tourists are coming to Europe, they are increasingly availing the services of river cruisers and exploring the coastline of Europe. Increasing preferences of global travellers to soak in the rich culture and history of Europe at their own leisurely pace without having to hop from one hotel to another is a major factor driving the popularity of European cruises. However, the traveller should keep in mind that most of the river cruises are not meant for children, so the family traveller may not be able to opt for European river cruises, which may act as a restraint to the growth of the sector.

European Cruises: Description  

European cruises offer a lot to the modern day traveller. From lively, colourful and vibrant European cities to dusky, serene and laid back villages and towns, offering an intimate experience into the rich and varied landscape of Europe and soaking its rich culture, history and tradition. European cruises can be of two types, one by exploring the European coastline by ocean liners and cruisers or by taking a river cruise through the rivers flowing through Europe and gaining an enriched experience sailing through its magnificent waterways. Both the types of journeys have something different to offer to the avid traveller, but travellers should consider which type of cruise suits their taste and preferences the most. If the traveller expects to dine in different restaurants every night of their cruise or wishes to spend an entire night in a casino or soak in the sun in a swanky swimming pool, then an ocean cruise in a huge cruise liner will suit them the most. However, if the traveller wants to have a more laidback and an intimate travelling experience, exploring the sights and sounds of Europe at their own leisurely pace, then a river cruise is best for them.

Since the river cruisers are smaller in size as compared to the ocean cruisers, they offer a more personalised experience where the ratio of crew to passengers is high, offering the traveller a more customised service where their each and every need is taken care of. On the other hand, due to the small size of the river cruisers, there are often limitations in the room size and often there is no swimming pool. Even the number of passengers travelling in a river cruiser are far less as compared with the huge ocean liners, so the traveller can expect a more intimate experience while travelling with a small group of people. Also, it should be noted that most of the river cruises are not meant for children, so they would easily get bored if they chose to travel in one of the river cruises as compared with a large ocean liner that has a variety of entertainment options to offer.
