With two standards of river cruises, APT offers something for everyone looking to explore the world's waterways. The two options include Essential and Luxury - each of which has its own benefits and offers for river cruisers. Essential river cruises are ideal for those longing to explore and see the world while still maintaining an afforable budget.
Essential river cruises explore the same waterways as Luxury, from the Volga to the Mekong, while maintaining a standard set aside for those booking Essential sailings. Pick our European gems along the Danube, or discover the Douro from Lisbon - there is plenty to take your fancy on an Essential APT river cruise.
Sailings also explore top destinations and popular ports of call including Budapest and Amsterdam, as well as Vienna and Cologne.
An Essential APT river cruise offers exceptional value, with the perfect balance between sightseeing and leisure time. Enjoy dining and relaxing aboard a 4* river ship, all while being cared for under the APT's trademark exceptional service.
There are an umber of ships which are included in the Essential APT itineraries, featuring sailings across Europe, Asia and beyond. In Europe, ships include the Travelmarvel fleet of Jewel, Sapphire, and Diamond, while the Douro exclusively boasts Saga River Cruises' Douro Queen.
Further afield, Asia is home to the RV La Marguerite which sails along the Mekong visiting Vietnam and Cambodia. The Irrawaddy is home to the RV Samantha and the RV Princess Pahnwar. Meanwhile, the Yangtze is where three more ships reside - Victoria Anna, Victoria Selina, and Victoria Lianna.
The Volga courses through Russian landmarks, from Moscow to St Petersburg, where you can explore aboard APT's choice of ships including the MS Excellence Katharina and MS Rossia.
