One of the great features of any river cruise holiday is the serenity of sailing from port to port in calm waters, surrounded by beautiful countryside. Each Riviera Travel ship compliments this exquisitely, offering a sense of relaxation and luxury that will delight any traveller.
Every Riviera Travel vessel offers elegant accommodation and fantastic dining in five-star restaurants, with plenty of space to unwind and soak in the local culture, atmosphere and views. Add in the excellent service provided by the staff and you can be safe in the knowledge that a holiday with Riviera Travel will always be a luxurious experience. Explore Europe's most beautiful rivers aboard one of these award-winning ships, with spectacular new scenery guaranteed each day.
How do Riviera Travel ships compare to others?
On-board Riviera Travel ships you can enjoy a guest-to-crew ratio of just four to one, so you can enjoy first-class service at every moment. Crew members have the time to take care of all the little details, learning passengers’ names and personal preferences. This gives a ‘small ship’ feel which entices passengers to return again and again, as many do.
Riviera Travel ships are also less crowded than some others, carrying up to 50% less than similar-sized ships belonging to other cruise lines, so you’ll find lots of space to relax both inside and out on deck. This is particularly true of the restaurants, where most tables seat just four or six people for an intimate dining experience. The newer vessels such as the Thomas Hardy also have alfresco dining areas.
