The Art of River Cruising

River Cruises get you into the heart of a region. These smaller, more intimate ships allow you to see the very best of both iconic cities and fairytale villages. Plus you’ll soak in the ever-changing countryside as you enjoy your float down the river.

An ultra-convenient way to experience these destinations::

    • Europe’s heartland
    • The Peruvian Amazon
    • The Galápagos Islands
    • Southeast Asia
    • China
    • Russia
    • Egypt

Effortless Travel

River cruising ships are smaller than ocean-going ships, yet large enough to provide an array of amenities. The professional staff is on hand to provide a truly effortless way to travel.

Think of the ship as your floating hotel. You unpack only once, and float from city to city, and town to town. River Cruises are the perfect way to discover a region’s most revered inland treasures, while also enjoying the world’s most scenic rivers!

Each vessel is uniquely designed for comfort. With capacity usually under 200 guests, you can enjoy luxurious lounges, restaurants, sun decks, and public spaces. Or privately enjoy the passing scenery from your hotel-like stateroom or suite.

No Two Rivers Are Alike

Just as each city has its own personality, so does each river. Each is a wonder combination of nature, villages, cities, and history.
