Less Is More


With a visit at every port, spacious cabins, included dining and personal touches, explore more for less on our five-star river cruises.


We love cruising. And we know you do too. But have you ever discounted a river cruise experience, believing it’s “not for you?” Let us tell you why river cruising is the best way to cruise in 2021; there’s less of every compromise you might accept on an ocean cruise, and even more of the experiences you love about this way of travel.

Our modern and spacious ships carry an average of just 160 guests, so you’ve got plenty of space to yourself, and all our cabins are large and beautifully appointed, with a window in every one. There’s no sea days here, with a new port (and included excursion) every day, you’ll be fully immersed in the destination you’re visiting. Our award-winning customer service team is fully UK based and on hand to help, so there’s no long waits on hold or overseas call charges to consider. And our five-star luxury experience costs less than you would imagine, with so much included as standard.
