Immerse yourself in Culture with 2018 River Cruises

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.

Stunning ships dedicated to relaxation

If you have spent the past year dreaming about river cruises, 2018 is the perfect time to take the plunge and book your journey of a lifetime. Thanks to a host of new ships and the launch of even more excursions and on-board activities, it has never been easier to lose yourself in your itinerary.

Lovers of complete luxury will feel right at home with Crystal River Cruises, where exceptionally designed all-suite river yachts treat all who set foot on-board to gourmet dining, sophisticated décor and innovative facilities. Then there is Uniworld: an indulgent river cruise line boasting boutique ships inspired by French Rococo.

Alongside Scenic’s luxurious river cruise ships, Viking’s cultural enrichment programme and even more enchanting cruise lines, you have a selection of vessels that will delight everyone from solo travellers to couples.

Book your 2018 river cruise escape

Whether you are craving an escape from everyday life or simply want something to look forward to in 2018, river cruises are the perfect antidote. Marrying cultural immersion with fine dining, fascinating excursions, lavish staterooms and amazing on-board entertainment, river cruises are the only way to explore the world.
