Why Choose A Travel Department River Cruise Holiday?

Sail To The Heart of the City

As the ships used on our European river cruises and Nile cruises are smaller than traditional ocean liner cruise ships, we are able to dock in the heart of almost every city we visit. By making our way into the centre of each city, our holiday will include more time to explore all of the incredible destinations that we offer. Each river cruise includes several ports of call including visits to world-renowned cities like Vienna, Budapest and Paris.

Explore More With Included Excursions

On all of our holidays, we make sure to include plenty of guided tours and trips to help us get the most out of our time away. Our river cruises are no different and offer multiple shore excursions, some included and some optional, throughout our journey. We’ll have the opportunity to visit the home of classical music in Vienna, explore the Valley of the Kings in Egypt, and hear the history of one of Europe’s oldest universities in Salamanca, Spain. On each excursion, we’ll be accompanied by a local, expert guide.

Enjoy Onboard Entertainment

While travelling on our river cruises, we’ll have the opportunity to experience local culture through unique onboard entertainment. On our river cruise holiday through Vietnam, we’ll participate in the ancient art of Tai Chi and traditional cooking demonstrations. On our river cruise through Germany, we’ll hear traditional Bavarian music and sample authentic regional cuisine. Whether it be traditional dance lessons in Cambodia or a folklore show in Budapest, each river cruise offers something unforgettable for us to enjoy.

Savour Local Flavours

One of the best ways to learn about a new culture while travelling is to sample their local delicacies. Whether it’s goulash in Hungary or pretzels in Bavaria, every country or region has something new to discover. When travelling with us, each of our river cruise holidays offer full board and an exciting selection of both authentic regional cuisine and international dishes. So, we can enjoy Port in Porto or Pho in Vietnam.


What To Expect On A River Cruise Holiday

River cruises are a fantastic way to discover hidden gems in multiple destinations as we cruise along the most stunning waterways in Europe and beyond. We hand pick our 4 and 5 star ships to make sure they offer a range of fantastic facilities, including restaurants, bars, spas and lounge areas. Beyond the amenities of the ship itself, we’ve chosen a superb selection of cruises to some of the world’s most wonderful destinations. Choose from cruises along the Danube, Rhine, Nile, Mekong and more. Some of our most popular European river cruises are along the Danube, which include excursions to the famous European cities of Munich, Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest, among others. With expert, local guides to give us the history in some of the places we visit, we’ll be sure to get the most out of our ports of call.
