River Cruises on the Rhine

Rhine

Rhine River Cruises

The Rhine is one of Europe’s major rivers, flowing through Switzerland, Germany, France and Holland. The area around the river – Rhineland – has a natural beauty that is simply stunning.  Picturesque mountain ranges, enchanting forests, mysterious castles and traditional vineyards provide a wonderful backdrop to a river cruise.

Here at Shearings we're able to offer a choice of six exclusively chartered vessels for cruises on the Rhine. River cruise holidays include full board accommodation on board, and transport to the ship by coach, air or Eurostar. We also have expert guides on hand to take you on exciting shore excursions.

See the wide range of Rhine river cruises below, or check out our full range of river cruises all over the world.
