Ocean Cruising Stalwart, Jennie Bond, Discovers The Appeal Of River Cruises

Former BBC royal correspondent and ocean cruise veteran, Jennie Bond, recently returned from her first ever river cruise

Ocean Cruising Stalwart

Posted on

14 Dec 2016

Former BBC royal correspondent and ocean cruise veteran, Jennie Bond, recently returned from her first ever river cruise, and told cruisecapital.co.uk all about it…

For me, it’s the ocean, the beach, sunshine and sand between my toes that truly floats my boat – if you’ll excuse the pun. So when ROL Cruise suggested I might enjoy a river cruise, I was slightly dubious. I live by the sea, deep in Devon and an hour from any city. I do that because I don’t like cities …or towns, come to that. So why would I enjoy floating down a big river, stopping in all sorts of conurbations?

But, as I discovered, one of the great things about tapping into the knowledge of experts like ROL Cruise, is that they not only know what’s out there – they soon get to know what makes you tick. And that’s how my husband, Jim, and I – by now, veterans of the ocean-going cruise world – came to be sailing up the Rhine last June.
