Whether visiting historical cities such as Vienna, Paris, Budapest, St Petersburg, Prague and Moscow; exploring UNESCO World Heritage Sites or sampling one of the local wines from the Rhine and Mosel regions, you will find that a river cruise offers a fantastic variety of experiences.
But your options do not end there. Broaden your horizons to the USA or the Far East and you could soon find yourself discovering hidden temples along the banks of the Mekong or sampling authentic comfort food in the towns and cities of the Mississippi.

Indulge in culinary delights taking in the regional specialities that most river cruises offer. Meet interesting people, join them on some memorable excursions and enjoy lively conversations. Or simply relax and watch the world go by with a drink or book in your hand.
Each river you traverse brings a different experience; the Rhine offers historical castles and the magnificence of Cologne Cathedral, the Nile allows you to delve deep into Egyptology, while the Russian Waterways reveal imperial palaces in all their glory. Enjoy the sounds of different languages as you pass along the riverbanks and the regional evening entertainment offered with most cruises. Savour the taste of local cuisine and beverages – if you journey through one of Europe’s many vineyard areas, most cruises will also offer wine-tasting excursions too.
River cruises are more than just a holiday! Embarking upon a relaxing and comfortable river cruise, you experience sailing in style, passing some of the world's most stunning landscapes. River cruises offer you the chance to learn about the different countries and their history, to explore panoramic landscapes, visit magnificent castles, palaces and churches all from the comfort of a floating luxury hotel.
