River cruise and stay holidays

Enjoy the best of both worlds

Join one of our river cruise and stay holidays and you can combine a relaxing river cruise on the Danube, Douro, Rhine or Elbe with a break in some of Europe's most fascinating cities.

These holidays have been carefully designed so you can spend longer in some of Europe’s most celebrated cities, and we have hand-chosen hotels in Vienna, Prague, Bern, Davos, Berlin, Budapest, Lisbon and Copenhagen, as well as in the Romanian region of Transylvania.

Alternatively, if you want something a little different, we offer French barge cruises – stay in one hotel and explore the French countryside by intimate canal barge during a series of day cruises.

We include more than anyone else

Here are just some of the extras we include as standard….

  • VIP door-to-door travel service included on all river cruise and stay holidays
  • Included travel insurance§ on all holidays
  • Wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner on many ships
  • A choice of exclusive ships with a host of extras on board
  • Included excursions and stays in famous cities

French barge cruises

There’s no better way to visit the pretty villages, vineyards and historic sites of rural France than aboard an intimate barge. These week-long cruises combine the charm of leisurely day-cruising, with a relaxing stay in a carefully-selected hotel.

Celebrity guests on board

We are delighted to announce that a host of special celebrity guests will be joining a selection of cruises to bring a fascinating extra dimension to your holiday.
