Last Minute River Cruise Deals

Last minute river cruises are available with most river cruise lines including Viking, Uniworld, Emerald Waterways, TAUCK, Riviera Travel, Avalon Waterways, Scenic, Crystal River Cruises, AMAWaterways and APTouring.

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.

Cancellation River Cruises

Last Minute River Cruise Destinations

You can make a last-minute river cruise booking for cruises to almost any destination. You'll find plenty of deals to the rivers of Asia or for cruises along Egypt's famous Nile. Long-haul river cruises such as these often get booked further in advance. 

However, there are still last minute river cruises available on Europe's waterways. These can be perfect for last-minute getaways or short breaks. If you'd only like to see last minute river cruises within Europe, click the button below.
