River cruising aboard a well-appointed ship is simply the finest way to travel, taking in the scenery at a gentle pace from the comfort of your floating hotel. Discovering historic cities and witnessing the stunning panoramas as you glide along your chosen river all from the comfort of your luxury ship.
A flight of stairs down, and you have all the amenities of a modern hotel — restaurants, bars, lounges, fitness facilities, spas, internet access and comfortable staterooms.
Whether admiring breath-taking views from the sun deck, dining in style in the on-board restaurant, or enjoying a drink in the bar, there’s plenty to do on board your ship. And at your ports of call you can visit must-see attractions and really get to know the local area on our shore excursions.
One of the unique benefits of river cruising is that the view from your window is constantly changing. From serene countryside to lively cities, picturesque villages to historic landmarks, there’s so much to see from the comfort of your cabin. Head up to the sun deck for the very best views – and don’t forget your camera!
Unlike large cruise liners, which can be overwhelming and impersonal, river cruise ships offer an intimate, friendly, convivial atmosphere. You’ll soon befriend your fellow travellers and helpful crew, who’ll make you feel right at home.
As you’ll visit several fantastic destinations – but only unpack your case once – a river cruise can feel like several holidays in one! There’s so much to see, and we don’t want you to miss a thing, which is why we’ve highlighted some of the best historical, cultural and scenic sights
