River cruising—a better way to explore
Nothing compares to the river. Where else but on the river can you journey into the heart of the world’s greatest cities and towns, and discover the true nature of the land? Comfortable and convenient, it offers a greater variety of destinations than you could encounter any other way. Spend less time getting there and more time being there. Little wonder that river cruising is the fastest-growing segment of the travel industry.
See the World’s Great Cities
Paris, Vienna, Budapest, St. Petersburg…because so many cities and towns developed along waterways, they were literally made to be accessible by river. Sail directly to the heart of many destinations and walk right off the ship into the center of town.
Travel With Ease
After boarding the ship, unpack—just once—in your spacious river-view stateroom. Relax in comfort for the duration of the cruise. And because the rivers offer smooth sailing, there is no motion sickness.
A More Intimate Experience
Because our ships accommodate between 120 and 260 guests, it is easy to make new friends. And there is no waiting in long lines to embark, disembark or have a meal.
New Scenery—All Day, Every Day
Fairytale palaces, towering gorges carved through millennia, tiny villages nestled in the still preserved beauty of the landscape—enjoy breathtaking scenery that’s constantly changing through panoramic windows in the restaurant and lounge and stunning 360° views from the sun deck.
Culture & History Everywhere
Stroll through an open air architecture museum in the middle of a Russian lake; watch the artists at work in a Meissenware studio; listen to a concert of ancient bronze bells in Wuhan. You are unlikely to reach these places any other way.
Travel Your Way
Join the guided walks and in-depth excursions planned for you in each destination—or sightsee on your own if you prefer. The choice is yours.
