Rivers have throughout time served as the world’s natural highways, facilitating trade and travel, connecting people and cultures. As civilizations developed along riverbanks, history’s footprints have remained along their shores, making a river journey simply one of the most culturally enriching and rewarding travel experiences you can have.

Comfort, convenience, culture & cuisine
Unpack just once, enjoy a glass of wine on the relaxing sundeck, listen to enriching lectures, and be entertained by music and local folklore. Enjoy interesting shore excursions in every port of call—or, since your floating hotel docks mostly in the centre of towns and villages, choose to explore on your own, through the museums, galleries, boutiques and cafes. Over a sumptuous dinner including local specialties, relive the day’s highlights: perhaps discovering architectural surprises in Dresden or Prague, marvelling at the treasures in St. Petersburg’s Hermitage Museum or strolling through the courtyards of Beijing’s Forbidden City.
A different perspective
River cruising is quite possibly the optimal way to travel. Unlike on a bus tour, you will not spend hours on the highway, but spend your time being in your destination, instead of trying to get there. And unlike some ocean cruises, on a river the world reveals itself to you with its constantly changing scenery along the rivershores.
