Shearings River Cruises

With well over a century of travel experience to its name, Shearings is certainly a company which knows everything there is to know about river cruising. A Shearings river cruise offers not only excellent value, but fantastic service on a carefully selected range of exclusively-chartered vessels. These explore itineraries which visit a host of iconic rivers and cities and are regularly updated to ensure that customers both returning and new have plenty to choose from.

With an extremely wide selection of destinations, Shearings has a whole host of incredible itineraries for you to choose from, no matter what your tastes and interests may be. 

You may want to see some of Germany's most stunning scenery by venturing down the Rhine, Moselle or Main waterways, or perhaps you want to sail through the heart of Central Europe via the Danube River, visiting such legendary capital cities as Vienna and Hungary?

Of course, with Shearings it’s not just about exploring Europe, and by way of its exclusive charters, the line offers you the chance to unearth the ancient wonders of China on a cruise down the Yangtze, or the incredible historic sites of Vietnam and Cambodia on a memorable Mekong voyage. If you want to explore the incredible legacy of the Egyptians, then Shearings also offers you the chance to sail the legendary Nile River.

Dining

No matter which vessel and itinerary you choose, you’ll awake to a delightful breakfast buffet offering a combination of English and Continental choices, while a mouth-watering menu of delicious meals awaits you each evening. 

A full table service ensures that dinner is always an experience, often created using locally-sourced ingredients by expert chefs, while the incredible six-course Captain’s Dinner is certainly an event not to be missed.

Facilities

The vessels in Shearings’ impressive fleet differ in both size and design to suit the rivers which they explore. All of these ships offer a wide selection of facilities to help ensure that your river cruising experience is as enjoyable as possible.

Every vessel boasts a sun deck, which is the perfect place to soak up the rays when the weather’s fine or simply take in the views. Spacious dance floors, panoramic lounges well-stocked bars and laid-back libraries are also part of the Shearings river cruising experience.
