Read the latest travel news in the following USA Today article:


River cruising is the fastest-growing sector of the cruise industry. The most popular river cruises are along Europe’s eastern waterways.

USA TODAY
River cruising has seen a spike in interest over the past few years, but is ocean cruising’s counterpart seeing a new rise in interest thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic? Maybe.

Michelle Fee, CEO of travel agency Cruise Planners, told USA TODAY her company has seen “incredible demand” for river cruising both internationally and domestically.

“River cruise purchases have nearly doubled since same time last year, and they represent 21% of all Cruise Planners departures for 2022,” Fee said, cautioning that it’s hard to compare bookings between 2020 and 2021 since large ocean cruise ships haven’t sailed in U.S. waters since last March.

Because of their limited capacity, small river cruise ships are exempt from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control’s Framework for Conditional Sailing, which applies to ships carrying 250 people or more that have not been able to resume sailing in U.S. waters.

The nordic people were free to travel in the Scandinavian countries including Finland. No passports or travel documents were needed. The freedom still today is the most important for the Scandinavians from that epoch. Freedom is to travel, learn to know new countries and other languages, and meet different people and cultures. He wishes the new generations would have the same possibilities experiencing all that what makes you feel free, and building a strong personality. -
