~ port intensive river cruising captivates the explorer in you ~


River Cruises offer intimate, beautifully appointed ships and an on-board experience that is very leisurely and relaxed. 

You'll typically visit a different port each day on nearly every itinerary, and ships often dock right in the middle of town so you can simply walk off and begin exploring right away. The itinerary allows you to explore both quaint riverside towns and larger cities, and enjoy organized sightseeing tours away from the vessel.

There are typically no formal nights, and unlike large resort-style ships, there are often no spa services or broadway-style shows. Instead, life enrichment programs allow you to experience the most from your destination.

Discover Your Destination

From windmill-studded tulip fields, fairy-tale castles, and picturesque vineyards, to spectacular landscapes, stops in medieval towns and grand cities, and visits to ancient abbeys and local Christmas markets, a river cruise allow you the opportunity for in depth exploration of your destination.

What Your River Cruise Includes

Most often, the price of your River Cruise includes your cruise accommodations, port charges, meals, lectures, activities and excursions, complimentary Wi-Fi - as well as hotel accommodation on any cruisetour itineraries. Many river cruise ships have verandahs, french balconies and suites.
