By boat or by barge, by historic steamship or by expedition vessel, Jules Verne have cruise holidays for all tastes and budgets, along some of the most scenic rivers and coastlines in the world.
Our small ship cruises are expertly planned and organised, during some of the most favoured times to travel, meaning you will enjoy each destination at its best.
We offer a selection of cruise holidays that provide a balance between on-board comfort and exciting ports of call. The use of small vessels promotes a friendly atmosphere in the company of like-minded travellers so you can enjoy your coastal or river cruises in comfortable and relaxed surroundings.
A number of our river cruises contain an educational element; with expert talks about the history, wildlife or culture of your destinations.
A cruise holiday with us will deliver you easily to cities and even villages that would be difficult to combine in any other way, including the best-known highlights and the quieter, hidden gems that other bigger boat cruises may miss out along the way.
River and coastal cruises are a wonderful way to travel allowing you to relax and watch the ever-changing scenery that unfolds as you glide by. There is no better way to discover the treasures of each country, whilst travelling in style and comfort, and without the repetitive necessities of hotel formalities.
