Try a different way to travel - An introduction to River Cruises

22 December 2020

Slow paced yet riveting, leisurely yet varied, cruises are a unique experience. Lofty mountains, picturesque hamlets, roaring waterfalls, or verdant forests - each morning brings new sights while you get to relax in top class comfort. There's no need to fret over a room with good views, because you get to be at the centre of each landscape, admiring the scenery that surrounds you.

River cruising is the ideal way to explore European destinations from the comfort of your hotel as you glide along the water. From the charming canals of the Netherlands and Belgium floating to the Rhine River that flows languorously by fairytale forests and turreted castles, river cruises take you along some of the most scenic routes available anywhere. You get to behold nature at its finest, while remaining ensconced in the comfort of your 5* cabins.

The journey might be leisurely, but there are plenty of adventures to be had along the way as you embark on explorations with local guides who ensure you have the most authentic experience. Discover local histories and folklore as you traverse arresting terrains and architectural delights. After returning to your ship in the evening, local folk musicians regale you with intimate performances.

Embark on a cruise with our sister company, Great Rail Journeys, and immerse yourself in local culture. Enjoy everything you'd expect from our rail holidays, alongside a rich programme of city tours, guest speakers and evening entertainment, all on a floating hotel that's a home away from home. Your happiness is our priority on our fleet of luxurious Amadeus river cruisers. Exclusively chartered for Great Rail Journeys, expect 5* service, stylish cabins, delicious food, and the best in modern facilities.
