The transition from ocean cruises to river cruises, or vice versa, may not be an easy one. Ocean cruisers often fear that river cruises will be boring, with a lack of activities on board and fewer choices when it comes to dining, bars, lounges, etc. Conversely, those who enjoy the quiet and relaxed nature of river cruising often think that taking an ocean cruise is overwhelming, with crowds of people and not enough down time to explore the ship and the cities around them.
