Even though they are predominately associated with coach holidays and tours, Shearings River Cruises have been very popular in recent years and we are going to have a look into the company and the services that they offer.
The company itself has over a century of experience in the travel industry mostly with, as we have mentioned, coach type tour holidays however their cruise packages have been gaining notable attention and recognition recently.
Like many cruise companies, Shearings have been putting a lot of emphasis recently on seasonal cruises such as Christmas markets, New Year based cruises and trips that try to take in the natural beauty at various times of the year such as Spring and Autumn.
Indeed, Spring cruises along the Dutch Waterways have been very popular among holidaymakers as the wild bulbfields that are found along many of the canals and waterways in the region provide a spectacular natural beauty that is unrivalled. They also offer many of the popular routes along the likes of the Rhine and the Danube that can take in many countries and attractions all on the one trip.
Shearings have expanded recently to take advantage of other areas
However, the company that is often associated with the UK and certain sites in Europe have also expanded in recent years to take advantage of the growing interest in Asian cruises, The Mekong that takes in Vietnam and Cambodia has become a very successful and popular cruise route recently as it allows you to see a part of the world that is not usually on most peoples’ holiday agenda.
Angkor Wat in Cambodia, the Mekong Delta in Southern Vietnam and the many floating markets that are around this area all provide a fantastic cruise experience.
Seeing as the company itself has been in the travel market for over 100 years now then it is no surprise that has picked up countless awards in this time.
Most recently however it bagged the prestigious Rail, Road & Sea Operator of the Year, TTG Awards that not only recognised Shearings as an established and recognised travel operator but that its cruise department is also rated as highly as companies who specialise only in cruises.
The company has also released it update itineraries and ships for the coming season. The MS Alegria and the MS Princess, exclusively chartered to Shearings are new, the new ships as well as the older fleet are based on small, intimate settings that allow passengers to interact and relax in a comfortable and stress free environment.
For a holiday operator that does not exclusively focus itself on the river cruise market, Shearings River Cruises are highly popular amongst holidaymakers. Indeed, its century old history in the holiday sector gives it an edge over many of its competitors even when it comes to cruise holidays; you do not stay in a business for 109 years without knowing what you are doing and knowing what people want from a holiday.
Shearings, for their perception as a UK based coach tour operator, provide river cruises to some of the most popular destinations and spots around the world in a peaceful and experienced manner.
