As more Jews become more interested in their culture and history, Jewish cruises are becoming more competitive, creating more immersive and engaging Jewish tours.
Many travelers, especially those with Jewish ancestry or practicing Judaism, take these tours because they want to learn about their history, pay homage to the Jews of the past, or simply explore the Jewish communities in the area.
One of the best ways to go on a heritage tour is with river cruises.
River cruises can go to distant places and are also known for their active, immersive and educational activities.
Currently, there are many cruise companies that offer a Jewish-themed tour. However, there are Jewish ships that offer more than just a themed cruise.
Here are the best river cruises you should definitely try for a great Jewish cruise experience.
Kosher River Cruise
One notable Jewish cruise is the Kosher River Cruise. It is a luxury river cruise known for its immersive cruises and state-of-the-art riverboats. They are also known for exemplary customer service.
Its best-known destinations are the Danube River, the Rhone River, the Mekong River, the Douro River, and Northern Italy. It also has exotic destinations such as the Mekong River, the Ganges River in India, and the Amazon river.
Another great thing about kosher river cruises is that they are all inclusive. Thus, you do not need to spend extra for any activity. Also, Glatt kosher meals are available from morning until midnight. Guests should have no problem keeping fit, as there is also a gym and spa on board.
Another purely kosher cruise is Kosherica Cruises. Having been in the industry for 25 years, Kosherica now sails to more destinations than any other river cruise in the industry.
There are fantastic five starter river liners offering glatt kosher gourmet freshly prepared by chefs under strict supervision.
Its unique selling points are its non-stop entertainment, such as Vegas-style casinos, comedians, and magicians. Kosherica offers different workshops for children, a kids club as well as special youth areas.
