A River and Ocean Cruise is a trip during which one travels on a ship and visits or sightsees several sites.
The ship size is one of the main distinctions between river cruises and ocean counterparts. River vessels are much smaller than ocean cruisers as they have to navigate shallow rivers and locks, whereas ocean ships, as the name suggests, are large enough to sail effortlessly across vast stretches of water.
The average cost of a cruise varies by ship, location, trip length, and services included onboard. A River and Ocean Cruise can be an affordable and fun vacation complement. Better to ensure all variables associated with the cruise's total cost.
A Private River and Ocean Cruise with Portugal Deluxe cruise can cost anywhere from 280€ per person for a one-hour private cruise, in the Douro Valley, to up to 1450€ per person for an eight hours luxury vessel in Madeira.
Cruise fares vary based on itinerary, schedule, and the ship and services included, such as catering onboard or fire bottle opening.
