Why You Should Travel With A Group On Your Next River Cruise

Updated: May 3

I'm often asked, "if I should travel with just my partner or should we travel with a group?" There's no easy answer to this question, and a lot comes down to personal preference. For example, independent travel is freeing and helps create a strong bond between partners. While traveling with a group of friends or a larger organized group, you'll have the opportunity to make new friends and see the world from their perspective.


As an LGBTQ traveler, being in a group helps give us numbers to be more comfortable going to destinations that we otherwise would avoid. This is precisely why Rainbow Getaways hosts annual group trips to new destinations, like our 2023 Egyptian Adventure.


It is no secret that traveling in groups can benefit your traveling experience.


Traveling with people who share similar interests and enjoy the same hobbies is an excellent way to explore new destinations, especially if you didn't know them before. The concept of traveling with a community of like-minded people has been around for years and is a proven way to ensure that you have a positive river cruise experience.



Sharing personal traits, hobbies, values, and interests builds relationships and develops connections. Different groups of people can discover and enjoy new experiences from the same destination. Food lovers will indulge in France's local cuisine, while history buffs and architecture enthusiasts will marvel at the scenic Rhine River Gorge with its fabled legends and many castles. Active or wellness travelers can group to bike the countryside and seek beautiful side streets, cafes, and shops. There is no right or wrong way to explore a new destination, so long as you do what makes you happy.



Sharing your passion and excitement for a destination or the local culture with your fellow cruisers is what makes a river cruise so memorable. Onboard, you can continue building your relationships as you plan for the next port of call and explore the various suggested excursions. AmaWaterways has curated various unique included experiences based on different interests to help cater to every type of traveler, ensuring that you never miss out on the fun. You'll be amazed by how quickly and effortlessly you connect with your fellow travelers as you cruise through Europe!



AmaWaterways wants to help you make the most of your river cruise. Even if you are traveling with your group of friends, you can still mix it up during the day and explore a destination with a new group of guests who share similar interests. It is fun to swap stories, see the different perspectives, and learn more about what the people in your group enjoy doing.
