If you want to book a cheap river cruise you’re going to be looking at some of the shorter itineraries, which aren’t offered by every cruise line. It depends on what you’re looking for but for the best deals you may have a more restricted choice when it comes to picking your cruise line.

One great example is the five day itinerary available with The River Cruise Line that takes you on the Rhine, one of the most scenic river across the whole continent, with prices available from as low as £429. You’ll see the great attractions of the city of Cologne, including the stunning cathedral, while you’ll also have the chance to see the castle at Koblenz and the sights of Boppard and Rudesheim, along with the breath-taking beauty of the Rhine Gorge.

A good time to get away to the Rhine for something different is around the Christmas season, when you can enjoy exploring various different markets in the ports along the river with five day itineraries offered through Shearings Holidays for the low price of just £589, including your travel to and from Cologne, or from just £419 for four days with The River Cruise Line.

Shearings Holidays also has other five day itineraries that you can book at great value prices. Venice is one of the most popular cities in Italy, known around the world as a romantic destination. Book a cruise that mainly focuses on the city and the surrounding area with Shearings Holidays from just £689, or alternatively you can see the Dordogne region including Bordeaux in France from just £729.

If you really want to look at a longer break, there are still some great deals to be had by looking around. Again with Shearings Holidays you can travel on the Nile, including many of the most renowned historic sights and landmarks, from just £789. Alternatively sail with Viking River Cruises on the Seine from £779, including plenty of time to explore Paris.

These are just some of the typical deals you can grab but the range on offer is always being updated, with the chance that you’ll be able to get a cheap Europe river cruise for prices even lower than those quoted here. Once you’ve found an itinerary that interests you, make sure you call our team as soon as possible so that you don’t miss out.
