A river cruise gives you the opportunity to visit several countries in one holiday and see the most famous sights of every town and city that you visit. Iconic capitals such as Vienna, Budapest, Amsterdam, Paris and Beijing all feature on river cruise itineraries but of course, if you want to concentrate on one particular country or area of a river, then that's fine too, as there are hundreds of itineraries to choose from.

And then there's the scenery. Beautiful countryside, wine-rich valleys and dramatic gorges are all yours to experience as you travel and with a river cruise, the scenery is constant and ever'changing. As you travel from port to port, you'll see wonders both natural and man-made, passing through stunning valleys and intricate lock systems. River cruise vessels offer you your own personal view of this scenery when you're spending time in your room, so whether it's a picture window, French Balcony or Veranda, you'll be able to take in the gorgeous views as you travel from port to port.

A river cruise ship is like your own stylish, state-of-the-art hotel which takes you from one destination to the next. You'll enjoy fine dining every night, with all your meals included as you choose from a mouth-watering menu, often created using locally-sourced ingredients. Dedicated staff and crew will be on hand to cater for your every need and when it comes to returning to your room at the end of each rewarding day, you'll enjoy contemporary accommodations with such features as flat screen TVs, Wi-Fi and luxury linens.

Each day, you'll enjoy a taste of the local culture too, thanks to a fantastic choice of immersive port excursions, offering everything from tours of ancient Cambodian temples and German medieval churches to wine-tasting excursions in Provence and concert performances in Vienna.
