River Cruises

Adventures on the world's great waterways

Luxury river cruises

Introduction

The world's great rivers offer a unique insight into a country's landscapes, food and culture, and there's no better way to explore them than on a luxury river cruise. Ranging from sedate sojourns on the Danube to a full-blown adventures on the Amazon, our collection takes in the best of them, all handpicked by our experienced cruise specialists.

In Europe, the Rhine winds a picturesque route through Germany, Switzerland and Holland, also joining the Main-Danube Canal to connect with Austria, Hungary and the Black Sea. Other popular European options include meanderings along the Douro in northern Portugal and Spain, cultural cruises in northern Italy and wine-soaked explorations of the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers in beautiful Bordeaux country.

In northern Africa, the Nile offers a rich mix of archaeological sites, rare birdlife and croc-watching – a genuine icon of the river cruise world – while to the east, the Mekong courses through Vietnam and Cambodia, sailing among floating villages hardly touched by tourism. Or, head for the Yangtze to experience the the sheer drama of the iconic Three Gorges, paired with extended visits to Beijing, the Great Wall and Shanghai. Also in Asia, India enthrals with journeys along the holy Ganges, while in the south Kerala's dreamy backwaters serve up swaying palms, delicious seafood and oodles of relaxation. Alternatively, head west to the USA to soak up the famous food and music of the Mississippi.

Whatever you choose, our specialists are on hand to help you plan, from choosing the right itinerary to adding on everything from flights and transfers to pre- and post-cruise touring.
