Articles and reviews on river & small ship cruise lines, itineraries, ports, and ships.


The Premier Team loves writing articles and reviews for the Spotlight Series!
Each of our Spotlight Series articles and reviews — Cruise Line Spotlights, Port Spotlights, Itinerary Spotlights, and Ship Spotlights, pertain to all aspects of river cruising and small ship cruise vacations providing our customers and site visitors with unique, in depth commentary that will help them select, plan and prepare for their cruise vacations. 

Our informative Spotlight Series is yet another reason to work with one of our Personal Travel Planners who are experts on all things to do with river and small ship cruising.
Why? They’ve been guests on the river and small ship cruise lines we write about. Our cruise experts have personally experienced every cruise line; every facet of their ships – old and new; have been to all the ports, immersing themselves in their histories and current states; and of course, have experienced up close and personal a huge number of itineraries and participated in all the onboard and shore activities they could cram in (To their great happiness!). They've explored, tasted, sipped, and tested their way around the world! Because they have such in depth, first-hand knowledge about river and small ship cruises, our experts have all the answers for you as you book, plan and prepare for one of the most memorable vacations you’ll ever take!

Take a look at our Spotlight Series line-up below... click on the Series that interests you (All of them, I bet!) and you'll go to that section's intro page displaying the line up of all the articles in that series.
