River Cruises

Get up close & personal with your destination on an intimate scale which never falls short on the indulgent touches. On your river cruise adventure you will enjoy efficient, attentive service along with fantastic food, comfortable accommodation and guaranteed river views - all part and parcel of the river cruise experience, where quaint towns, villages and all hidden aspects of rural life unfold before your eyes.

The rivers of the world are open to you with a host of options, from short breaks to Christmas Market getaways to longer journeys through history-rich Europe or cultural odyssey's through Asia. Sail along the storied French waterways; navigate the Douro, Portugal's "River of Gold"; see the castles along the Rhine or the gardens and windmills of the Dutch Waterways. Further afield venture along the lower reaches of the majestic Mekong; the grand, historic Nile; the mighty Ganges and much, much more.

With constantly changing scenery river cruises offer a journey that's as memorable as the destinations.
