River Cruise Advisor is compiled, edited, nurtured and loved by Ralph Grizzle. Our goal is to inform and inspire river cruisers and would-be river cruisers from all walks of life.
To operate, expand and reach existing and new potential cruisers, River Cruiser Advisor relies on sponsorship from its river cruise partners (similar to the NPR/PBS business model, public radio stations in the United States).
The site was launched in 2009 with generous support from AMAWATERWAYS. In 2011, Viking River Cruises joined in support. Uniworld joined in 2012. All continue to support the site. CroisiEurope joined in 2013. Scenic and its sister company Emerald Waterways joined us in 2015. American Queen joined in 2017. Time for you to join in supporting the industry’s best river cruise site?
There are three levels of sponsorship.

Travel Agent & Consumer Friendly
Based on the email and feedback we receive, River Cruise Advisor is as important to travel agents as it is to the traveling public. With your sponsorship you get both a voice to the trade and to consumers.
