Our river cruises are the best way to experience Europe

Our river cruises are an experience you will treasure for a lifetime. The European river cruise is the perfect way to enjoy lazy days on board and exciting days exploring onshore, topped off with delicious food, fabulous hospitality and a service second-to-none.

Our European river cruises programme is continually expanding to include even more exciting destinations, beautiful scenery and the choice of four fabulous ships. Our river cruises in Europe take in some of the world’s finest waterways.

Sit back, relax and enjoy as your intimate ‘floating hotel’ takes you gently through ever-changing scenery between wonderful ports and with no need for packing and un-packing!

On top of that, our river cruises are full board with comfortable cabins and attentive service, as well as great sightseeing excursions and it’s easy to see why river cruising becomes more popular by the year! Our range of cruises takes us from the delightful waterways of Holland in springtime, including the beautiful sights of the Dutch bulb-fields, to cruising along the majestic River Rhine, tranquil Moselle and to the spectacular River Danube, connecting the great imperial cities of Vienna and Budapest.

Whether you like small and friendly cruising or four star luxury, we have the river cruise for you.
