Over the last few years, river cruising has come a long way, in terms of quality and variety, offering a unique opportunity to relax and explore as you gently travel in style along some of the world’s most fascinating and scenic waterways, such as the Rhine, Danube, Mississipi, Yangtze, or even the mighty Amazon, to name but a few! With this type of holiday dependant on the itinerary of course, there’s also plenty of time to visit an array of historic and iconic towns, villages and cities, such as Strasbourg, Vienna and Prague. See some of the world’s famous places of interest such as the Lorelei Rock on the Rhine, or the Three Gorges on the Yangtze…every day is different and offers new ports of call, and new sights to see.
What about the ships? Well there’s a wealth of choice available, ranging from good value, to First Class and Premier quality cruises. We work in partnership with Riviera Travel who offer four or five star luxury on your very own “home from home,” state-of-the-art floating hotel. You’ll be on one of the most spacious, stylish, well-equipped cruise ships gracing the waterways of Europe and the wider world – the perfect setting for your river cruise.
Facilities on board vary from ship to ship, as does what is included in the price. This depends of course on which company you choose to holiday with, but would normally cover the excursions as specified in the itinerary, all meals with complimentary wines, beers or soft drinks at Dinner, and sometimes Lunch, services of an English speaking cruise director and crew, gratuities, flights and/or travel by ferry, coach or rail, transfers and much more.
Due to the size of the ships, dining is normally restricted to one restaurant and sitting, with evening entertainment, where available, on a much smaller scale than their ocean going counterparts, but this is a big part of the appeal of river cruising – it’s a different pace of life, with an irresistible mix of relaxation, history, culture and a constantly changing vista. Why not give it a try? – just call 0800 3164 521 for further details.
