It’s the start of a New Year, and that of course means New Year’s resolutions. Here at River Cruise Advisor, the start of the new year means thinking toward the future – and the future of river cruising has a lot of exciting changes in store this year.
In fact, in 2015, we’re expecting to add more content than ever before. That, combined with the number of ships, ports, destinations and itineraries increasing this year means that organizing our content becomes of paramount importance to us — and to you. That’s why we’ve given our homepage a refresher.
Near the top of the page, you’ll find helpful links that are designed to answer a variety of commonly asked questions, from helping you choose the right ship to knowing the differences between major river cruise lines. Below that you’ll see links to our River Cruise Reviews as well as information about Ralph’s special Avid Cruiser barge cruise through France this summer, and how to choose your river cruise stateroom.
Further down, you’ll see links to our most recent blog roll articles. While there is frequently new and exciting news to share, you’ll also find more articles focused on topics like solo traveling on river cruises, docking locations and more. Our article to-do list is endless. We’re always looking for new ways to help you make better informed decisions about your river cruise.
So we’d like to ask you what you’d like to see us write about: Are you interested in Voyage Reports from more exotic destinations? Is there a particular region of the world you’re interested in knowing more about? Do you just want to know which ships feature room service? Let us know; we’re here to help.
Our new homepage also fills a practical purpose; according to our analytics (an awful-sounding word that really belies how cool and useful these statistics are), more and more of you are reading this on an iPhone or an iPad. In fact, more of you are reading this on iPhones than any other mobile device. To that end, we’ve tried to feature more content on the homepage to make it easier to access the latest news without having to constantly click-through.
Of course, we’ll continue to tweak and improve the site as things go on. We look forward to cruising through 2015 with all of you who enjoy our labor of love, the new and improved River Cruise Advisor.
