European Luxury River Cruises

State-of-the-art River Cruising!

If you thought a river cruise was just a simple cruise down a river, think again!

River cruise tours have become big business, and because of this growing popularity, river cruise ships are evolving and getting better all the time.

Take for instance the  the magnificent Viking longships. Not so much a small ship that travels along the rivers, more an amazing hotel on water sailing through some of the most breathtaking scenery anyone could want to wish!

Furthermore, it’s not just the luxurious state rooms river cruise liners have to offer, although they are something else as well. The big extras make all the difference too!

Take for example the Emerald Waterways ships and all their finery.

 

 

These ships are Emerald Waterways new state-of-the-art ships and are really something else!

The new deluxe ships boast a heated swimming pool complete with retractable roof and bar, creating a brilliant on board oasis to relax in, whatever the weather. Once you’ve had a dip in the pool’s sparkling waters, you can always grab a drink from the bar to enjoy as you unwind on the comfortable lounge chairs.

On selected evenings, the pool area inventively transforms into a cinema showing a collection of classic films and recent releases – taking on board entertainment in a completely new direction -wow!

And if that’s not enough, the fact that dining is made a truly amazing experience just makes river cruising even better.

Enjoy delightful cuisine in their Reflections main restaurants,  grab a café-style lunch from a choice of pastas, pizzas, soups, sandwiches and fish and chips and enjoy alfresco dining with views of the spectacular scenery on the Terrace.

They even have complimentary tea and coffee available at all times throughout the cruise and red and white wines, local beers and soft drinks for you to enjoy with your lunch and dinner – all of which are included in the price of your holiday.

Whats’s more, to complement the high quality dining on board ships, authentic dining experiences  are often provided off the ship to give you a deeper insight into your destination’s culture – truly amazing!
