A new study of tourists asked them to share their travel interests and plans for 2023, highlighting trend insight for river cruising over the next year and beyond.
According to a "Wish List" survey from the Globus family of brands-Globus, Cosmos and Avalon Waterways-the top five rivers that cruisers are interested in sailing next include the Rhine (76 percent), Upper Danube (64 percent), Seine and Rhone (39 percent), Lower Danube (34 percent) and Douro (31 percent).
