River Cruises 2018/19
There are many incredible destinations in the world that are best seen from the vantage point of a river. In Europe, rivers have shaped the course of history for millennia. Further afield, cruises along the Mekong River to Vietnam and Cambodia are increasingly popular, while the tranquil Yangtze has timeless appeal.
River cruises on the majestic Danube can visit four capital cities – Budapest, Vienna, Bratislava and Belgrade, while the romantic Rhine will take you in style to fairy-tale castles, picture-postcard medieval towns and stunning scenery. Budding wine connoisseurs will be spoilt for choice – in addition to the Rhine and Danube, a river cruise can take you to the world-renowned wine regions of Provence, Bordeaux, the Mosel and the Douro.
Immerse yourself in Russia’s often troubled but never less than fascinating history on a cruise between Moscow, home to the onion-domed St Basil’s Cathedral and Red Square, and St Petersburg, Peter the Great’s masterpiece that was constructed to rival the very best European cities.
In Asia, river cruises offer fascinating voyages of discovery that will stimulate the senses. Visit unspoilt, intriguing hidden corners of south-east Asia, or discover China’s rich and varied imperial history on an unforgettable Yangtze cruise.
River cruise ships have all the comfort, amenities and supreme levels of service as their ocean-going cousins, but are naturally on a more intimate scale. Most cabins have a picture window and they are often able to berth in the very heart of the cities visited. This is perfect for those guests who wish to explore by foot or bicycle. A wide range of excursions is sometimes included within your holiday price. And there’s no need to worry about motion sickness, as the only wave you’ll see will be from a friendly local on the riverbank.
