River & Coastal Cruises

We are delighted to unveil our River & Coastal Cruises brochure covering departures until November 2021 and featuring a collection of 46 inspiring cruises on six continents, along scenic rivers and coastlines worldwide. Travelling in companionable groups, our selection of small ship cruises offer wonderful experiences for people who love to see the world. Expert guides will show you the true character of each destination whether your chosen cruise is closer to home or far-flung.

In addition to further departures and improvements on our wide-ranging global portfolio, we introduce new cruises - choose from our selection of exclusive Barge cruises; taste Champagne everyday(!) whilst cruising on the majestic Marne canal; follow the ‘Great Canal Journey’ of Timothy West and Prunella Scales; or discover remote settlements and abundant vineyards cruising from Nevers to Briare along the Loire Canal. Enjoy a cruise on the Venetian lagoon to Mantua along the Canal Bianco, with a £50 Early Booking Offer; save £65 discovering the lesser-known Danube beyond Budapest on ‘Secret Danube’, sailing from the Black Sea; or sail on the classic Nile route from Cairo and the Pyramids to ancient Thebes and Aswan on board the restored deluxe paddle steamer SS Misr.

We feature Early Booking Offers on ‘Maldivian Magic’ and ‘Christmas Markets on the Danube’; Andalucía and ‘Venice from the Water’, both also with No Single Supplement offers; as well as ‘The Colours of Provence & Beaujolais’, ‘Impressions of the Seine’, ‘The Classic Rhine Cruise’ and ‘Tributaries of the Rhine’, all with a No Single Supplement offer.
