Soak up the last of summer with a Riviera cruise

Soak up the last of summer with a Riviera cruise

Riviera’s exceptional Ocean Cruise adventures and inspirational five-star River Cruises are ready to launch for this year’s summer and the next!

With warmer months and sunshine here again and restrictions across the globe all but gone, now’s the time to treat your group to something extra special with the trip of a lifetime.

Whether you’re a cruise enthusiast or considering it for the first time, Riviera’s exceptional collection of inspirational Ocean, Yacht and River Cruises promises to deliver your group’s most luxurious, relaxing and exceptional holiday experience yet.

Grab your deck shoes and set sail into the blue aboard a world-class, authentic tall ship, embracing the nostalgia of maritime tradition from a bygone age without losing any of your creature comforts.

Discover Riviera’s sensational authentic tall ships, the magnificent Royal Clipper, Star Clipper and Star Flyer – the ultimate vessels on which to enjoy this unique and special way for your group to holiday.

Cruise the spectacular Mediterranean and Aegean along stunning and dramatic European coastline, taking in some exquisite coastal gems along the way and unwind and recharge in elegance and style whilst absorbing the sights, sounds and flavours of this historic corner of our legendary continent.

Use one of our five-star-cruises to witness the lush vineyards and sun-soaked slopes of the dramatic Douro Valley.

Unlike much larger cruise ships, the sufficiently intimate size of Riviera’s vessels allows a sailing experience closer to shore – ensuring the most stunning and unrivalled views, as well as the convenience and pleasure of mooring in smaller, fascinating ports of call enroute. On thoughtfully crafted itineraries hop easily ashore and enjoy included guided tours and visits with local experts so you’ll be fully immersed in each destination with time at leisure too to go at your own pace.

With all the wow and glamour of a larger cruise ship but all the social intimacy and personal service of a much smaller, exclusive vessel, Riviera’s luxury Adriatic yacht cruises along the dazzling Dalmatian coast offer plenty of flexibility for your group to do their own thing.

With a superb choice of itineraries in their collection, discover historical cities and picturesque medieval ports along the way, in the company of insightful experts and as you’ll always moor overnight, there’s plenty of opportunity to spend time ashore, dining independently in local restaurants, ambling through the cobbled alleys of picturesque Hvar or historic Trogir and soaking up the atmosphere.

For something completely different, if you love the great outdoors, with a passion for wildlife or dreaming of experiencing one of the last great wildernesses, then an out-of-this-world expedition cruise ticks all the boxes.

Riviera’s journeys into the Arctic and Antarctic are the epitome of an expedition cruise and provide a truly memorable adventure into some of the most remote and incredible corners of the globe. Gaze in awe at majestic fjords and glaciers, giant iceberg filled bays and calving glaciers, and get up close to some of the planet’s most magnificent wildlife – whales, walruses, arctic foxes as well as countless numbers of seabirds.

On our fantastic cruises you can sway through the sweeping bends of the spectacular Danube River.

Closer to home, discover Europe’s most legendary waterways on a five-star river cruise. Experience the idyllic landscapes of the Rhône Valley in spring, with its sweet-scented cider orchards and lavender fields in early bud or the lush vineyards and sun-soaked slopes of the dramatic Douro Valley.

Cruise the romantic twists of the Seine as you enjoy April in Paris, or the sweeping bends of the spectacular Danube with its stunning delta and host of magnificent imperial cities fringing its picturesque banks. From the meandering Main to the sleepy pastures of the Moselle, Riviera has a whole collection of inspirational and fascinating itineraries for your next group holiday.

Dine in sumptuous surroundings, unwind in the most spacious cabins, and enjoy a host of included fascinating visits and expertly guided tours every day. With a perfect balance of time to explore ashore independently too, you’ll all enjoy your most relaxing holiday ever.
