River cruising

Why Go on a River Cruise?

Cruising isn't just about sailing over vast expanses of ocean - some of the best cruise experiences can be found in the winding rivers and waterways of Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Even if you're a cruising veteran,a smaller river ship, barge or river boat will grant you a completely new and unique experience of travelling on the water.

Sea the World's Great Cities

Paris, Vienna, Budapest, St. Petersburg... So many cities and towns were developed along rivers, and on a river cruise you can arrive in the heart of your destination without even leaving the ship. You will often dock right in the heart of town, mere steps away from charming squares, beautiful cathedrals and vibrant market places.

New Scenery - All day, every day!

Fairytale palaces, towering gorges, tiny villages... ever-changing scenery close up and at eye level. Your proximity to the shore means that colourful hillside villages, picturesque castles and ancient ruins are within view from all areas of your intimate ship.

A More Intimate Experience

Smaller boats mean fewer passengers, more attentive service and a more intimate holiday. All of this means you will also never wait in long lines to get on or off the ship; you'll never tender into port and you'll never spend long hours wave watching on a vast ocean.

Fantastic Cuisine

Some people don't realise just how far dining on river cruises has come. Most river cruise lines feature fresh, local produce and foods from the regions you are visiting. So, you can add just one more cultural experience to your river cruise tick list.

Travel with Ease

Unpack just once, in your river-view stateroom. Relax in comfort, and because rivers offer smooth sailing, there is no motion sickness. And, no matter which river cruise you choose, it's at your own pace. Whether you choose to go with the group on a guided tour, or do it on your own - it's all at the pace of your liking. Easy!
