Our river ships are among the best in Europe.

These vessels are custom-made for exploring Europe’s stunning waterways. Additionally, outstanding service throughout your cruise means you have expert staff catering to your every need, there to completely transform your holiday experience.
On board your premium river ship, you’ll enjoy meals in the fine dining restaurant, while the main lounge and bar is the perfect place to meet friends. Stick to your workout regime in the Fitness Centre and stay connected with Wi-Fi internet via onboard computers. If you're enjoying a European Gems river cruise, you can borrow an onboard bike and explore the riverside trails at your leisure. Then of course there’s always a chance to relax back on the Sun Deck, drink in hand. You are on holiday, after all.
As charming towns glide by, you’ll enjoy the flavours of Europe. The continent is renowned for its culinary delights and each meal on board will showcase local dishes. What’s more, wine, beer and soft drink are included with onboard lunches and dinners during your European Gems or Douro river cruise. Tea, coffee and water is available on all cruises. In fact, if you’re cruising on one of our new contemporary ships, an onboard barista can also whip up the perfect coffee.
There are plenty of opportunities to come together and enjoy a range of entertainment and activities while on board your river ship.
