Whether you dream of discovering Europe’s cultural and cosmopolitan capitals or envision yourself exploring Asia’s mysterious villages and lush rainforests, there’s a river cruise for you.
When people think of cruising, most automatically imagine endless seas and distant horizons. But river cruising is a remarkably rewarding experience, taking you away from bustling coastal resorts and enabling you to enjoy a country’s hidden beauties.
River cruises present an everchanging landscape. Whether it’s rolling hills, mysterious jungles, bustling industrial ports, colourful villages or elegant cities, you’ll enjoy a varied vista as your ship meanders along tranquil waterways, taking you to fascinating destinations. No two days are the same on a river cruise but they are equally enjoyable - with world-class service, magnificent cuisine and all the facilities you would expect from a 5★ hotel.
Rivers have long been the lifeblood of Europe. Once the motorways of history, they allowed people to travel from capital to capital and country to country in style and you too can do the same on a European river cruise. Discover the Danube River, the second-longest river in Europe, that flows through ten countries including Hungary and Germany. Sail along the Dutch waterways with their fascinating array of historic cities, towns and villages. Or enjoy the everchanging tapestry of the Rhine River that links Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, Germany, France and the Netherlands.
A river cruise to Asia will unearth hidden treasures that can’t be accessed by air, road or rail. Explore the highlights of this extraordinary continent as you traverse some of the world’s most amazing corners by river. Sail along the longest river in Asia, the Yangtze River, home to an amazing spectrum of wildlife including the Chinese alligator, finless porpoise and Yangtze sturgeon. Deeply sacred to Hindus, the Ganges is one of the world’s most significant waterways, passing by numerous former provincial or imperial capitals. Meanwhile, the Mekong links China, Myanma, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam making an Asia river cruise the ideal way to discover the hidden history and hideaways of these six nations.
