Explore and discover
River cruises are a delightful way to follow some of the world’s main waterways. And they offer such a wonderful opportunity for calm exploration and discovery. Waterways have been the lifelines for early explorers, settlers, farmers and traders throughout the world. And today, river cruises present a superb opportunity to discover and experience the real character and culture of a destination.
Travelling by river gives you a totally different perspective. Magnificent scenery unfolds before you as you travel serenely along some of the world’s beautiful natural highways. Take in historic, vibrant cities and grand architecture. Picturesque castles, busy riverside towns, sloping vineyards and stunning vistas. A river cruise is a journey that explores the heart of every inspiring place you pass through.
We think that river cruises are one of the most relaxing, rewarding and unforgettable travel experiences that you can have. Sit back and enjoy exploring the beautiful rivers of Europe, Russia, Vietnam, India, China and the USA and many more.
Wake up each morning in a new place, ready to discover new sights. You will find that your river cruise ship is a floating luxury hotel. Step onboard, unpack just once. And then sit back and watch the constantly changing scenery slip peacefully by as you sail on to your next destination. Once onboard, you can enjoy luxurious accommodation and excellent service. Furthermore, superb cuisine, great onboard facilities and entertainment will make your stay a pleasure. And the art of relaxation is so easy to find.
Sailing into the heart of every port of call, river cruises give you an opportunity to get under the skin of local history, culture and people. There are excellent guided on-shore excursions available. And perhaps from time to time, you would like to strike out independently to do your own thing in your own time.
