The beautiful Durnstein, Austria.

Unlike ocean cruises, river cruises take you directly to the heart of your destination, whether it be charming villages or gilded townships. Glide along Europe’s picturesque waterways before docking in the centre of each locale, with no need to transfer from a distant seaport. Step off the ship and instantly immerse yourself in the local culture as you wander through historic cobblestone streets, explore ancient landmarks, and unearth local treasures with expert guides who will unveil the rich history and vibrant traditions of each port of call. You’ll also have the opportunity to explore more of Europe as your ship travels to multiple destinations on a single trip, seamlessly connecting the dots of your itinerary and uncovering the hidden gems that make each place truly remarkable.
