River ships carry on average 150

guests and offer a relaxed and informal

environment. They are geared for viewing

the passing landscape with large picture

windows and usually dock in the centre

of town with great, easy access ashore

directly down the gangway, giving

plenty of time for exploration. On a river

journey you will travel through the heart

of countries with constantly changing

scenery, making this a wonderful way

to unwind with waterways being usually

smooth and calm.river cruise ships will

never carry hundreds, or even thousands

of passengers as they can only be certain

heights and depths to fit on to the rivers

they sail. Meaning you will encounter

some of the highest guest to staff ratios

and exemplary levels of service in the

industry. As with all types of cruising,

dining is a big part of the experience, with

food being centred on the destination you

are sailing through.

The finest local wines will be paired with

traditional dishes as well as Michelin style

international and continental dishes.

Destination Focus


A river journey is about life in the slow lane - watching towns and villages, mountains and monuments drift by in a

peaceful, unhurried environment. The increasing popularity of river cruising can be attributed to the way in which it

offers a unique insight into countries and cultures. River journeys are a great alternative to coach tours and city breaks

providing an ideal way to visit a number of cities and towns while just unpacking once.

The Nile, Egypt

Most river cruise lines will also offer you

the chance to take part in culinary tours,

where you will be able to visit the local

market places the chefs use to source the

finest, freshest ingredients. With many

river ships docked in city or town centres

into the late evening, guests are able to

head off to find restaurants and theatres

while those who stay on board will

often find local entertainment provided.

Excursions are organised at each stop for

those who want them and depending

on the cruise operator, these may be

included within the price

When it comes to selecting your cabin,

most are the same size as one another,

but location on the ship and style of

window/balcony may vary. Below is a

quick guide of the key differences you

can find:

Porthole cabins: These cabins are usually

situated on the lowest deck, with small

windows that sit just above the waterline

and allow plenty of natural light in to the

cabin. They are also usually your best

value option.
