River Cruises

As a relaxed, elegant, and sophisticated way to explore the inland waterways, canals and rivers of beautiful countries, offering chic accommodation, high quality amenities and exquisite cuisine, it's no surprise that river cruising has become more popular over the years.

Popular river cruise destinations include the Danube, the Rhine, the Moselle, the Douro, the Seine, and - further afield - the Mississippi, the mighty Mekong, Yangzte, the Irrawaddy, and the Nile. With durations generally between 7-21 days, river cruising provides the perfect opportunity to explore delightful villages, cities and towns, take in some stunning scenery as the river boat serenely glides along the river, and make new and enduring friendships with like-minded fellow passengers.

With the intimate settings offered on river boats, river cruises are perfect for couples, individuals, multi-generational families, and groups of friends - and even solo travellers! Plus many river cruises offer special themed cruises to suit guests' special interests, whether to appeal to foodies, wine or beer aficionados, music lovers, or keen historians.
