Last Minute Discounts
Booking a river cruise which departs in the next couple of months can mean that you make a saving on the price of your holiday. Many river cruise lines, such as Viking River Cruises or Emerald Waterways, offer well-publicised incentives for early bookers in the form of discounts, free spending money or free extras such as chauffeur transfers. However, as the departure date nears, they may also offer discounts in order to fill empty cabins on each ship.
If you're not particular about the exact dates that you travel, which destinations you want to see on your river cruise, or even which cruise line you travel with, then it's worth looking out for any late deals to see if you can get yourself a cheap river cruise.
This page lists discounted river cruises departing in the next 10 weeks. It also includes any cancellation river cruises where previously-sold cabins have become available again at short notice.
