Craving a holiday that is completely focused on culture, relaxation and indulgence? River cruises are the only way to see the world from a completely new perspective, and in 2018, offer more excitement and new experiences than ever.
Immerse yourself in each destination
River cruising is about completely immersing yourself in each destination on your itinerary. Sailing right through the heart of a country rather than skirting the edges, you will be treated to sights, sounds and smells that cast a spell over your senses.
Sample distinctive Austrian, Hungarian and Croatian cuisine on a Danube river cruise to some of the most celebrated cities in the world. From the baroque architecture of Vienna to the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve (home to the third largest biodiversity in the world), you will find wonder at every turn. Then, of course, there is the mighty Mekong, an intoxicating river spanning the best of Southeast Asia. Explore enchanting Far Eastern nations like Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia; home to stunning ancient landmarks and countless cultural experiences.
Add voyages along the Rhine, Douro, Mississippi and more to Danube and Mekong river cruises, and you have a plethora of itineraries to inspire all.
