River Cruise Europe

River Cruises are a great way to experience cruising life but on a smaller scale compared to a traditional cruise ship experience. Usually more intimate and less crowded you will find some of the best river cruises in Europe with destinations including Germany, France, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland and Hungary.

Europe River Cruises are generally undertaken by Senior Travellers, however they are open to all age groups whether you are single, a couple, a family or group. Travel from Amsterdam to Budapest, Paris to Nice or St Petersburg to Moscow the choice is yours. We have a large range of Europe River cruises discounted to ensure you can spend more on arrival than on the cruise itself.

River cruising vessels are generally smaller (2-3 storey) containing a wide range of cabins catering for all types and budgets. From Deluxe Stately rooms and Luxury Suites, most cabins are fitted with large storage cabinets, desks, TV, stocked minibars, free WifFi and offering private butler services. Larger suites can contain rooms 30% larger than cheaper cabins and can include open air balconies to provide an indoor/outdoor seating area for up to 6 adults.

Cruises throughout Europe sail through the Seine and Rhone in France, and the Rhine & Danube in Germany and are provided by European River cruise companies such as Scenic Tours.
