Recently I got a call from a client that was interested in a mass market ocean cruise. She had the supplier, dates and ship all picked out. I had previously introduced this client to river cruising via AmaWaterways. She asked what the benefits of booking through a travel agent for an ocean cruise.

Wondering when to book a river cruise? Since river cruising has increased in popularity I am getting a lot of calls from first timers asking to book a river cruise.

Although anytime is a good time for a river cruise the most popular dates are May, June & September. When to book?
