River Cruise holidays

As with an ocean cruise, when you sail the rivers of Europe and beyond you’ll enjoy all the comforts of home aboard your elegant vessel. What’s different with a river cruise is that not only will you see a different port each day or so, but you will actually sail through its very heart. And as you sip a drink on deck, you can almost reach out and touch the beautiful scenery from your floating hotel.

River cruising is a truly wonderful way to explore, you’ll head right into the heart of vibrant cities and discover hidden villages as you sail along some of Europe’s most famous waterways. Sit back, relax and enjoy.

Our collection of 4-star river cruises has been carefully crafted by our experts to give you unrivalled all-inclusive value. All of your shore excursions, drinks and meals are included so you really can immerse yourself in the experience and enjoy. Our award-winning holidays let you discover everything from fascinating history to awe-inspiring natural wonders and give you the chance to learn something new. Shared experiences in good company are something you’ll never forget. Our river cruises let you enjoy your holiday at your own pace. You can tailor your trip with a choice of included excursions and will have free time to explore at your leisure.

On every Travelsphere river cruise, you can enjoy a selection of included and flexible shore excursions. There’s something for everyone and for 2019 we’ve added even more exciting experiences for you to choose from. You can choose either the Explorer or Discovery excursions. We’ve hand-selected our ships with you in mind. Each one is small enough to sail right into the heart of a destination and the professional staff on board will ensure you have the holiday of a lifetime.
