"I want to cruise through a country."
A river cruise takes you through countries, making river cruising a more immersive experience. With itineraries to match every interest or passion there’s no compromise on choice.
Modern river cruise ships offer excellent accommodation, wonderful amenities and high quality food. Many also include shore excursions and port tours, adding to the great value, and you will often be served wine with your evening meal – all very civilised.
River cruises range in duration from 7 days right up to 21 days for a grand voyage from the North Sea to the Black Sea – an amazing trip encompassing 12 countries and a myriad of delightful villages, towns and cities. River boats are able to dock in the heart of a destination – allowing you quick and easy access to wonderful sightseeing.
Popular river cruise destinations
Popular river cruise destinations include the Rhine, the Moselle, the Danube, the legendary Yangtze, the Nile, the Chobe, the Mississippi, the Mekong in Indochina and the Russian waterways.
On a river cruise the ever-changing scenery glides past your balcony the whole time and, unlike on ocean cruises, there is no risk of sea sickness to worry about.
