The Best Way to See the Old World in a New Light
River cruising offers a unique and relaxing way to experience the world. Imagine gently cruising along the Rhine or Yangtze River in your floating hotel, sailing past castles and ancient ruins while gazing at an ever-changing shoreline seemingly at arm’s reach.
Highly Personalized Service in an Intimate Setting
River ships are smaller than ocean liners, so they offer highly personalized service and amenities, with intimate dining and entertainment options and spacious staterooms and French balconies.
Cultural Enrichment at Your Fingertips
Onboard activities focus on regional cuisine, history, and culture. Imagine a cooking lesson with a European Michelin-starred chef, a wine tasting with a renowned French sommelier or a folk dance by local Vietnamese women… all while cruising silently among breath-taking scenery and historic monuments.
Ports of Call from the Amazon to the Great Wall of China
Luxury river cruise vessels dock near the center of towns and popular sites, providing ample opportunities to immerse yourself in the culture. Float along the Neva River into St. Petersburg and disembark to tour the Winter Palace, visit Nevsky Prospekt and relish the art and relics at the famous Hermitage Museum. Glide through the Amazon jungle marveling at exotic wildlife. Explore historically significant sites off the Yangtze, such as Tiananmen Square, the Great Wall of China, the lifelike Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an, or enjoy a walk on the grounds of Beijing’s Forbidden City.
Wherever you indulge in a leisurely, luxurious river cruise, you’ll undoubtedly agree that this most intimate and accessible mode of travel is the perfect way to truly experience the awe-inspiring diversity of the world’s culture, history and people.
