Over 50 itineraries aboard 20 stylish ships, sailing Europe's most enchanting waterways, such as the Rhine, Moselle, Danube & Rhone.

For our 2019 river cruise programme we’ve added extra ships with new itineraries as well as creating brand new tours for some of our existing ships.


As well as the new cruises, we will see the return of old favourites such as Provencal Rhone and the Carmague, Portugal, Spain and the Douro Valley as well as Bordeaux and the Dordogne River.


Why not celebrate Christmas and New Year on a river cruise with us on one of our festive cruises? Or soak up the wonderful atmosphere at some of the most beautiful Christmas markets in some of the quaintest towns and cities in Europe on our Christmas Markets on the Rhine tour.


As well as the glorious Rhine, new cruises take in the Danube, the Dutch Waterways and the stunning Loire Valley.
