Exciting destinations

There really is a river cruise out there for everyone, whether you're a single traveller, on a honeymoon, taking a once in a lifetime trip or just looking for a relaxing holiday. Lets start with the destinations. Europe, home to some of the worlds most picturesque waterways and historical towns and cities. The Rhine, being one of the most popular and most accessible river cruising destinations, featuring famous museums in Basel, Holland's windmills, the Black Forest and the UNESCO World Heritage Site splendour of the Rhine Valley.

A cruise down the Danube River will take you past four capital cities, a feat no other river in the world can match. Vienna, Budapest, Bratislava and Belgrade. Fairytale castles cling precariously to hillsides. Travel on the Danube, and you're tracing a history of imperial Europe through its architecture, music and food.

There is so much more to river cruising than just Europe. Journey further afield to Asia where your faced with a choice of rivers. The grand Yangtze in China, Asia's longest river, passes by scenes of stunning natural beauty and incredible feats of engineering both ancient and modern. Then there's the Mekong, glide gracefully through Burma, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. Home to the famous Angkor Wat, the world's single largest religious monument, a complex of temples now a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Or why not consider the Irrawaddy river in Burma? Very much an up and coming river cruise destination, a land that has long been off-limits to the rest of the world and is home to some of Asia's most spectacular temples.
