Explore the world's waterways on a river cruise and spend more time experiencing life with a longer duration river cruise. While shorter week-long sailings are great for getting away to Europe's popular riverbanks, it's always better to spend more time exploring the farthest regions to ensure you don't miss anything on your river cruise.
Longer duration river cruises tend to focus more on the longer rivers and those which are further from the UK. This means that while you may be travelling further to destinations such as Ukraine or Asia, you still get to spend plenty of time exploring the region and enjoying time on your river cruise.
Many longer duration river cruises still sail to the same popular rivers, such as the Danube, Rhine, and the Douro, while spending more time overnight in port; offering more opportunities to explore, encounter the locals and experience the cultures at every turn.
More unusual river cruises which sail for ten nights or more include those along the Rhine, Main and Danube - where you can spend two weeks sailing from Amsterdam to Budapest. Or, experience the Ultimate River Cruise with four rivers in one trip and five countries to tick off your bucket-list.
For a unique river cruise experience, longer duration sailings also explore the riverbanks of Africa with a sailing along the Chobe - witnessing the Big Five from your balcony; visiting the exotic realms of Vietnam and Cambodia along the Mekong; or sailing the iconic Yangtze RIver with a Grand China itinerary lasting 17 nights!
