About Us

Allow us to introduce ourselves. We’re two veteran travel writers and editors, Janeen Christoff and Ana Figueroa. Each of us has years of experience covering the travel industry in general and cruising in particular.

Why did we launch Rivercruiser™?

Because we see river cruising as an untapped adventure for folks who aren’t necessarily the big cruise-ship type. And for those who are big cruise- ship types, it’s time you tried river cruising!

River cruising has all the advantages of traditional cruising (unpack only once, all-inclusive product). But, you won’t find the downsides that turn people off about ocean cruising. No long lines, tender rides or hard sell to buy onboard extras.

River cruising has exploded since we started writing about travel. Yet, there’s not a lot by way of resources for the first-time (or more seasoned) river cruiser.

That’s where we come in.

Our goal is to help you decide which river cruise lines, destinations, ships and excursions are right for you. Along the way, we’ll keep you posted about exclusive travel deals, promotions and special Rivercruiser™-branded theme cruises.

If you’re ready to become a Rivercruiser™, come along for the ride!
