FIRST EDITION OF RIVER CRUISING GUIDE



BERLITZ AUTHOR TURNS FROM OCEAN CRUISING TO RIVER CRUISING

Douglas Ward, the Berlitz author renowned for setting the internationally recognised rating system for ocean-going cruise ships worldwide, has turned his attention to river cruising. June 2014 sees the publication of the first edition of the frank and forthright Berlitz: River Cruising in Europe (£14.99). Almost every river cruise company promises ‘luxury’, but what does ‘luxury’ really mean?

With around one million people each year choosing to cruise on riverships, the guide will be invaluable for both river cruise novices and converts, as well as for those in the travel industry. Ward concentrates on the cruises that can be purchased through specialist travel agents and tour operators, and on seven key rivers in Europe: the Danube, Rhein, Elbe, Rhone, Seine, Po and Douro, with a rundown of the best sights along those waterways.

 Douglas Ward travels up to 200 days each year aboard the world’s ocean-going cruise ships and riverships. He is best known for Berlitz Cruising & Cruise Ships, the best-selling annual guide to ocean cruising, which in September 2014 celebrates its 30th year of publication.  The first edition of Berlitz: River Cruising in Europe (published June 2014, 256 pages, £14.99) is available from all good bookshops.
