Did you know you could take a river cruise vacation on four different continents? A river cruise meanders through pristine landscapes and offers spectacular views of its surroundings up close. They are immersive vacations providing you a glimpse of every day life in the small towns and villages along the rivers.

Europe

Whether you’re thinking of a river cruise on the Rhine or the Danube, the Douro, the Rhône, Seine, or Moselle, the prospect of a European river cruise is greatly exciting. History, culture, food and wine…it can all be experienced in the villages and towns along the rivers of Europe.

Russia

Or maybe you are intrigued by the history and heritage of Imperial Russia. Then how about a cruise down the River Volga? See the Red Square and the Armory Museum in Moscow, the Hermitage and Kathryne’s Palace in St. Petersburg, attend a performance at the Bolshoi Theatre.

Asia

River cruises are not limited to Europe and Russia. The rivers of Asia will take you to remote fishing villages and colonial towns in Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, and China. Embark on a cruise on India’s River Ganges and visit Mother Teresa’s humble home and tomb in Kolkata.

South America (Upper Amazon Forrest)

South America is home to the world’s largest and second longest river, The Amazon and a cruise along the Amazon river is a photographer’s paradise.

Africa - Egypt and Africa's National Parks

In Africa a cruise on the River Nile is a must. Egypt is a destination steeped in history like no other. A cruise down the Nile will take you to the temples of Luxor and Aswan, and in Cairo you will stand next to the 5000 years old pyramids of Giza.

An African safari with your family is an unforgettable experience. Why not embark on a river safari on the River Chobe and come face to face with the rich wildlife in Chobe National Park, home to one of the most diverse animal population in the world, where over 120,000 elephants reside. And for the more adventurous, not afraid of hiking, let’s visit Uganda – say hello to a gorilla family!
