Best River Cruises For Your Wedding Anniversary

Posted January 27th, 2016

A significant milestone deserves a memorable celebration and what better way than sharing the joys of travel and cruising with your true love? Here are the best cruises for special occasions, with suggestions for Black Sea cruises in Europe, Mississippi paddleboats, Ganges cruises in India, and Burma holidays with sailings on the Irrawaddy.

Cruising The Lower Danube

In Europe, consider the Lower Danube, sailing from Budapest to Romania or Bulgaria. It is a very different experience from the Upper Danube, travelling through Hungary, Croatia, Serbia and visiting little-known towns and cities that played an important part in shaping European history, as well as churches and rock fortresses.

Bucharest, eastern Europe

Scenic has a nine‑day Black Sea Explorer cruise from Budapest to Bucharest that visits Osijek in Croatia, Belgrade in Serbia and the Romanian capital for an overnight stay.

The Historic Mississippi

Further afield, American Queen Steamboat Company has cruises on the Mississippi on a paddlewheel steamboat. A seven-night cruise from Memphis and New Orleans is a fascinating journey through the history of rock ’n’ roll, slavery and the civil rights movement. New this year is an incredible, 24-night voyage from St Paul in Minneapolis to New Orleans. 

Exploring Asia

In Asia, Viking River Cruises has voyages on the Mekong River in Vietnam and Cambodia or the Irrawaddy in Burma. These take you away from cities to small villages, monasteries and floating markets.

Cruise, Myanmar

Avalon Waterways has a two-week Golden Myanmar and the Irrawaddy itinerary, pairing a 10-night cruise with three nights in Yangon. APT has introduced seven-night river cruises on the Ganges in India paired with five-night tours of Delhi, Jaipur and Agra.
