River Cruise Line: APT Cruising

You can find detailed information for APT Cruising and the ships in their fleet below.

APT Cruising
80+ years on, the APT Group is still a family-owned company, proud of its heritage and committed to providing the sorts of experiences you only get from family-run organisations. It wasn’t always river cruising, but ATP has always been about travel. Yet the company has long since expanded from its Melbourne origins and has set its sights on becoming the premier river cruise operator on routes far away from Australia. Why APT Cruising? When you want to become the best at what you do, emulate the best. APT Cruising works in partnership with another of our cruise providers, AMA Waterways. The result is an impressive range of ships and a wealth of on-board facilities and activities, coupled with a warm welcome and service standards for which APT Cruising is rightly renowned. The Ships: APT Cruising operates two types of ship. The Aria Class matches elegant, opulent suites with public areas packed with diverting bars, restaurants, fitness and entertainment areas. The Concerto Class ships are slightly newer and slightly larger, with even more to tempt you away from the views slipping by, and exciting extra touches such as twin-balcony suites. The APT Cruising Experience: They call it Freedom of Choice Touring. What it really means is this: 200 experiences available at 64 destinations in 25 countries, with an onshore dining service available in 26 destinations across 15 countries. Tailor your river cruising experience and enjoy personalised adventure in a host of destinations. And like your lunch and dinner drinks, gratuities and APT’s Signature Experiences, it’s available at no extra cost. Responsible Tourism: The more we explore our world the more we affect it – but that effect is diminished when your river cruise line treats the places it visits as responsibly as it treats its guests on board. APT Cruising is committed to sustainable tourism. That means protecting nature, building cultural understanding and operating in an economical, environmental and socially responsible way. That why APT Group is one of the few tourism operators to hold Advanced Ecotourism certification. And it’s why we work with APT Cruising.
