Maybe you've already done an ocean cruise, but have you ever thought about river cruising? The smaller size of the ships give them many advantages over ocean cruising...

No inside cabins

Relax on your balcony or open your full length windows as the landscapes change from place to place. Wake up to a different view everyday; because there's nothing more relaxing than rising with the sun...

Fewer passengers

Forget the hustle and bustle of larger liners and get to know your fellow passengers as you all sail the waterway of your choice. A quick and easy disembarkation means maximum time ashore!  

Smaller ships

Easier navigation around these luxury cruising vessels makes for a more intimate river cruising experience. Plus, you can enjoy a more attentitive service.

No need for formal attire

Save your suitcase! There's no need to pack your tuxedos and evening gowns for this casual and relaxed atmosphere. River cruising is about the destinations, not the dress-code.  

Single traveller friendly

With solo travelling becoming more popular; smaller ships, friendly staff, a double cabin and low single supplements are a superb combination for those looking to meet like-minded individuals.

No tendering
