Cruising in summer couldn’t be better? European city streets are alive with the buzz of travellers enjoying a relaxing coffee or meandering through tree-lined avenues, shopping bags in-hand. In most destinations, you can pack light this season. Enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple on the ship’s sundeck, with the warm evening air of summertime wrapped around you.   

Nature is in full bloom in summer - from Egyptian pelicans in the Danube Delta to the lush greenery that lines the rivers, offering vibrant and picturesque views from your comfortable cabin.
