River Cruises 2022/2023

River cruising is a truly relaxing way to travel - sit back and enjoy breath-taking landscapes from a different perspective. Journey through beautiful rivers and waterways in Europe such as Italy, France and Portugal where you’ll call in at a host of fabulous towns and cities. Below is a selection of the wonderful river cruises we have available.

The Danube is the number one river on Titan travellers’ cruise wishlists.
It seems you can't wait to discover the treasures lining its banks. Book a Danube cruise and you could soon be listening to a classical concert in a Viennese palace or taking a tour of Budapest’s Gothic Parliament Building. You could be sipping wine from a Wachau Valley vineyard or indulging in a slice of chocolatey Austrian sachertorte. And you could be stepping into age-old churches, baroque cathedrals and hushed monasteries.
This year, our exclusive Danube cruises will be aboard MS Bellejour. She’s a great choice for making the most of those river views, with floor-to-ceiling windows in the restaurant and extra-large porthole windows (or French balconies) in cabins.
Each cruise offers fantastic value for money – you’ll enjoy VIP door-to-door transfers in the UK, free-flowing wine and beer at lunch and dinner, and delicious onboard cuisine inspired by the regions you’ll be cruising through.

A world of river cruises to explore.

As well as voyages on our exclusively chartered vessels, it’s worth remembering (should you fancy something a little bit different) that we offer a great choice of sailings on ships and rivers all around the world.
If it’s absolute luxury you’re after then look no further than Spirit of Chartwell on Portugal’s Douro, or the worldwide offerings of Uniworld, including Venice, the Mekong and the waterways of France's Bordeaux region.
Talking of France, the sailings with our friends at CroisiEurope should be the go-to itineraries for any Francophiles. On board their small ‘barges’ you’ll enjoy delicious food and drink while exploring rivers and regions barely touched by tourists. A real insight into regional France.
Elsewhere, you can sail the Mississippi on an iconic paddlewheel riverboat, glide down the lifeblood of the Pharoahs with Presidential Nile Cruises, or discover the majesty of China’s grand Yangtze.

River cruises from £799pp

Cruise the Rhine, Danube and Dutch Waterways in 2020 aboard MS Bellejour & MS Serenade 1
It’s not long until our river cruise ships cast off for their first sailings of 2019, but we’re already looking ahead to 2020. We’ve just released next year’s itineraries – and there are some great ones to choose from. All the usual Titan touches are included: VIP transfers from home, knowledgeable tour managers and cruise directors, onboard entertainment, and free-flowing wine and beer with lunch and dinner.
And the best part? They’re at their lowest prices, so by getting yours in the diary now, you’re guaranteed the best price on your chosen cruise. If we drop the price at any time before you sail, you’ll be refunded the difference in cash automatically – that’s a promise.

River cruising is a fantastic way to see the world. But with so many options, where do you begin?

In Europe, the two biggest names are the Rhine and Danube (both of which you can sail on our exclusive Titan voyages). Expect castles, cathedrals and storybook-style medieval towns aplenty. The Dutch Waterways are ideal for springtime voyages, while the Douro is spot-on for wine lovers (and those who fancy travelling on the same ship as the Queen). For added luxury, take a look at Uniworld, Scenic or A-ROSA; for a boutique feel, look to Croisi-Europe’s French barge voyages.
Further afield, you could sail along the Nile, stopping off at ancient tombs and temples; cruise down the Mississippi on a classic paddle-wheel steamboat; or glide along Myanmar’s Irrawaddy River on a beautiful teak ship.
If you’re looking to get away this year, we’ve got some great last-minute availability on 2019 cruises (see below for a selection of our favourites). If you want to get next year’s trip in the diary, our 2020 dates have just launched, with prices starting from just £799 per person.

When you’re on board a Riviera Travel river cruise ship, you’re staying in a floating, luxury boutique hotel. Our fine fleet of five-star and four-star superior vessels are hallmarks of distinction and truly world-class. Primarily Swiss-built and operated, they are rated by the Berlitz Guide to River Cruising as some of the finest river cruise ships to grace Europe’s waterways.

World-Class Facilities

Our suites and cabins are among the largest on any river cruise vessel – 83% of our cabins feature a French or full balcony. They are well-appointed with all the facilities you’d expect from a luxury boutique hotel.

Choose from a range of standard or superior suites and cabins. For the ultimate in luxury, treat yourself to a stay in a deluxe suite with floor-to-ceiling doors that open up to a French balcony or lead to a private balcony.
