See the world through their eyes and discover the mystery and magic of Europe’s most renowned river.

Discover another world of pagodas and ancient temples with all the colour and vibrancy of the communities that live and work along the banks of the Mekong River. Enjoy the sights and sounds of busy local markets and silk and silver cottage industries interspersed with lush islands and peaceful lakes showcasing one of the most biodiverse areas on the planet. Cruising the Mekong is the best way to experience this beautiful part of Asia with a unique serenity and slower pace of life.

Nile River Cruises

Explore the Nile River on a journey of magic and mystery, a fusion of modern-day Egypt with one of the world’s most ancient civilisations.

Main River Cruises

The Main River showcases the essence of historic Germany with ancient settlements dating back to the Roman era. This is the land of quaint timber houses and breathtaking fairytale castles before the river joins the Rhine at Mainz. The Main is also connected to the Danube via the Main-Danube Canal, offering a host of different cruise journeys.

Seine River Cruises

Discover Paris and Northern France on the gently meandering Seine with endlessly changing river landscapes that wander through medieval Normandy to Rouen and then on to the English Channel, home of the landing grounds of the Second World War. Enjoy a cruise that is a feast for the eyes and the palate, the perfect combination of Parisian city style and peaceful rural France.

One of Europe’s largest rivers, the Rhône, meanders from the Alps and flows through Lake Geneva into France and to the Mediterranean at Camargue.

Riviera Travel River Cruise

Rachel listened at all times to what we wanted.
We ended up with everything we asked for including the cabin. I was a little dubious not booking direct with Riviera Travel, but there was no issues and Rachel could not have been more helpful or patient. Cannot wait for this fantastic cruise and will look to book another with Crui.se in the very near future.

FAQs

Find answers to some of the most common questions about river cruising here.

I have allergies and require a tailored diet. Can Riviera Travel accommodate my needs?

Our on-board chefs provide fresh food daily and can accommodate restricted diets alongside our full menu range and vegetarian and vegan options. Just let us know what you need when you book.

Which is the best river for a first-time cruiser?

The Rhine and Danube are enduringly popular rivers with new cruise guests and repeat visitors, but it’s worth considering the Main and the Moselle for a European trip. Each traveller has unique requirements, so talk to our expert reservation team about what matters to you. With their extensive knowledge of all our river cruise destinations, they can discuss the best options for you.

I get seasick on open water. Will I get ill on a river cruise?

Seasickness is unheard of on our river cruises because the journeys are smooth and calm. Even people with serious seasickness problems don’t report any issues when they cruise with us. Remember that land is always visible from both sides of the ship, and that can help manage feelings of nausea or anxiety.

Can I explore destinations on my own?

Riveria Travel’s guided tours are renowned as being some of the best in the business, but we all like a bit of peaceful ‘me’ time, so guests are always free to explore on their own when we dock. Our on-board tour guides can provide information and tips about where to visit with that essential expert insider’s knowledge that makes all the difference.

What should I bring to wear for my river cruise?

Riviera Travel’s cruising is a relaxed business, so bring comfortable clothing that matches your location and the weather. If you’re unsure, speak to our friendly booking advisers, who will know the weather pattern for your intended destination at that time of year. Layering is always best to manage different temperatures and changeable weather conditions. Feel free to dress up for dinner, but it’s not obligatory.

When is the best time to go cruising?

Cruising is one of those holidays that is different in every season. Nothing quite beats the summer sunshine as you sail through the Rhine Gorge or the stunning Douro Valley, but then it’s also magical to dock in Vienna at Christmas under the sparkling night sky with all the excitement of the festive season. Each cruise is different month-on-month, but that’s the joy of river travel: every trip is different.

Relaxing Travel with Riviera Travel

Enjoy the heritage of four decades of river travel experience and expertise brought to you by the leading cruise company. Quality vessels partner with five-star service and award-winning shore excursions, all underpinned by a commitment to offer each passenger exceptional value for money. Step aboard and experience the Riviera Travel difference for yourself.
