Riviera River Cruises

Riviera Travel offers various itineraries on a number of rivers across Europe, as well as sailings on the Mekong River, offering a voyage to suit all tastes and interests, on-board some of the world’s most stylish ships and at amazing value. All the line’s fantastic ships offer magnificent dining experience on-board, along with comfortable and stylish surroundings which ensure you have a truly relaxing holiday.

  • Five-star value cruising experience
  • Full board from dinner on your day of arrival until breakfast on your final day
  • All visits and excursions
  • Airport/station transfers, coach travel to and from port of embarkation
  • Services of a Riviera Travel Tour Manager
  • A passion for people and places

One of the things that Riviera Travel prides itself on is its passion for creating the ideal package. Since the company launched in 1984, it has constantly worked hard to perfect every individual part of each itinerary, so it’s not just the ship that is unforgettable but the whole experience, from the moment you leave your front door to the time you arrive back home. When it comes to exploring ashore, many of the excursions you will enjoy are walking tours, and they always guarantee that each is run by a knowledgeable guide who speaks English fluently and knows the best tour routes to let you see every major attraction as well as the best of the lesser-known sights.


No matter which Riviera Travel river cruise ship you choose and no matter where you want to explore, you’ll enjoy your holiday from the comfort of your own home from home, where contemporary design and décor combine to create the perfect ambience. Whichever accommodation you choose, you’ll be able to sink into a lavish hotel-style bed dressed in fine cotton and linens. For your convenience, the majority of vessels offer tea and coffee-making facilities in your room and the water is perfectly safe to drink. You’ll also enjoy individually-controlled air conditioning in your room.


From the moment you arrive in your ship’s dining room, you’ll understand just what an experience dining is on-board each ship. Smart, professional and intuitive staff will be waiting to escort you to your table, dressed with the finest cutlery and china. Whichever river you are exploring, your menu is always a four-course culinary event, and each day, your menu offers a tantalising combination of international favourites and dishes reflecting your daily ports of call and created using locally-sourced ingredients. Though dinner is always an occasion, it is even more memorable at the beginning and towards the end of your voyage, when you’ll enjoy both the Welcome Dinner and Captain’s Gala Dinner. Each morning, you’ll also be able to enjoy a mouth-watering breakfast buffet and day or night, an open seating policy ensures a relaxed experience.


Outside of your cabin, stylish surroundings are a continuing theme, with elegant public lounge areas offering the perfect atmosphere in which to relax with fellow guests, share a drink or even enjoy a game of bridge or chess. Your ship’s well-stocked bar offers all your favourites and more, as well as stunning panoramic views of the passing scenery. Indeed, when it comes to scenery, your ship’s sun deck is another great place to take it all in, equipped with both outdoor chairs and sun-loungers. If you feel the need to cool off there’s a small splash pool on-board ships as well as a putting green and a giant chess board if you feel like keeping both body and mind active while on the river. Ships also boast a spa, sauna and steam room if you’re in need of a little mid-cruise pampering.
