Planning your trip

With so much on offer, you might need some inspiration! We’ve hand-picked a selection of favourite destinations and provided an overview of the very best highlights...

River Danube

River Danube Highlights

Undeniably beautiful, the Danube is one of the World’s most romantic waterways celebrated in music, literature and the visual arts. The river, which carves its way from the mountains of Germany’s Black Forest in the West through the Iron Gates Gorge to the Black Sea in the East, has been at the heart of European cultural, creative and political history for more than a millennium. Once the frontier of the mighty Roman Empire, the second longest river in Europe touches the borders of no less than ten different countries and has four capital cities in its path. Flowing through the centre of glorious Vienna, the historical core of Bratislava and the heart of Belgrade, the Danube is the division of beautiful Budapest. Along its banks fascinating towns and cities seamlessly blend the best of old and new, and a river cruise is the perfect way to get up-close and personal with Europe’s grand historic architecture, strongly-entrenched traditions, emerging cultures and ultra-modern landmarks. 

River Rhine

River Rhine Highlights

There’s a soul-stirring beauty surrounding Germany’s romantic Rhine river. From its alpine source in Switzerland, the Rhine winds its way through France and Germany and creates the characteristic landscape of the Netherlands, intertwining the history and culture of four fascinating countries. Simply the name conjures images of fables and fairytales, and the legendary Rhine promises a truly magical river cruising experience. Flanked by forested peaks and studded with rocky islands decorated with whitewashed chapels, the mesmerising Rhine Gorge is picture book perfect. The spires of medieval cathedrals and churches appear around every bend in the river as it meanders past pretty vineyard-backed villages, and hilltops crowned by crumbling castles and fortresses. Fascinating towns and cities showcase a rich French, German, or, in the case of Alsace, dual heritage.

River Thames

River Thames Highlights

From the Roman invasions of 43 BC to the turn of the millennium in 2000 AD, some of the most famous events in British history have taken place along Britain’s royal river. Stretching 215 miles from source to sea, the River Thames rises in the beautiful Cotswold Hills, and winds through the prestigious university city of Oxford and great city of London in its glorious path to reach the North Sea. Yet where the river cuts a gentle swathe through the rural heart of England, it takes on a very different personality. Meandering past picturesque towns and villages, alongside fields of green and trees reaching down to the water, is the Thames that inspired Kenneth Grahame’s Wind in the Willows, and Jerome K. Jerome’s three men to go messing about in a boat. Perfect for a leisurely, one of a kind river cruise.
