Get set for summer with Riviera’s exceptional five-star river cruise adventures

Whatever your passion, with Riviera you’re assured a holiday to remember.

A new year means it’s time for your group to start planning a dream summer escape, and what better way to holiday than on a Riviera Travel five-star river cruise.

Whether you’re a cruise enthusiast or considering it for the first time, Riviera’s exceptional collection of inspirational itineraries along the most beautiful of Europe’s waterways promises to deliver your group’s most luxurious and exceptional holiday experience yet.

Unwind and recharge in elegance and style on our superb vessels in a choice of spacious cabins and suites with river views, whilst absorbing the sights, sounds and flavours of some of the continent’s most enchanting destinations. Experience the most picturesque river scenery in the full bloom of summer from the comfort of a sun lounger up on deck before cooling off in the refreshing splash pool!

Or chat with friends over a drink in the lounge and absorb the views in this spectacular season. With a perfect balance of time to explore ashore independently too, and wonderful weather to boot, book your summer cruise now and you can all look forward to an incredibly relaxing holiday.

Discover cities rich in history, quintessential medieval towns and picturesque timber-framed villages where you can step back in time, soaking up the enchanting ambience of days gone by and plenty of warm sunshine.

Riviera Travel’s five-star river cruises allow you to absorb the sights, sounds and flavours of some of the continent’s most enchanting destinations.

See the sights from big name highlights to lesser know gems off the tourist trail, through the expert eyes of insightful local guides, who’ll bring your holiday to life with their insightful knowledge and experience.

Drift through the dramatic landscapes of the Douro Valley, its sun-soaked slopes clad in verdant vineyards, its picturesque towns soaked in tradition and atmosphere and its cities, awash with culture, history and architectural splendour.

Or glide along the sweeping bends of the Danube in the glorious summer months, to experience the vibrant colours of its stunning delta and abundant wildlife plus a host of magnificent imperial cities fringing its legendary course.

The world-famous Rhine Gorge and legendary Lorelei Rock await on a classic Rhine cruise to Switzerland; with Cologne’s world-famous Gothic cathedral, historic Koblenz and undeniable charm of Rüdesheim’s cobbled lanes and crooked houses, our cruises are jam-packed with rich and enlightening experiences.

Discover the picturesque pine-covered landscape of the Black Forest, chic Lucerne and the world-famous beauty of the Swiss Alps with their snow-capped peaks, crystal-clear lakes and pristine meadows.

There’s something for all tastes too, from shorter cruises of 4, 5 and 7 nights to longer 10 and 14-night adventures if your group is looking to push the boat out on the holiday of a lifetime. Longer river cruises are more than a holiday, they offer the chance to explore unique cultures and natural wonders you’ve always dreamt of seeing, in the most luxurious way.

See the sights in some of Europe’s most vibrant cities, from Cologne to Budapest.

With more time on board, there’s ample opportunity for your group to unwind and recharge while you all really make the most of your five-star ship’s excellent facilities too.

Discover the Danube’s finest cities on a 14-night cruise through the heart of Europe and explore atmospheric Budapest with its exquisite Art Nouveau architecture, charming historic Castle District and hearty cuisine. Or soak up the sights in refined Vienna with its dazzlingly beautiful buildings, grand boulevards and gentile coffee houses.

Alternatively try something different on a two-week journey of discovery to cities once shrouded in mystery beyond the Iron Curtain – from Bucharest’s elegant belle-époque villas and pretty squares to Belgrade’s iconic fortress, fine 19th-century facades and bubbling Bohemian quarter. Step back in time as you amble through picture perfect Bamberg, a dreamy tangle of curious lanes and quaint medieval houses or along Boppard’s stone quayside, an idyllic setting of colourful fishing boats and half-timbered cottages in the shadow of its impressive 4th-century fortress.

Whatever your passion, with Riviera you’re assured a holiday to remember.

With tours and visits included every day plus exquisite fine dining in the elegant surroundings of the ship’s restaurant, you’ll find a luxury river costs less than you think, so why wait – book now to secure your cabin and perfect cruise!
