Take the scenic route on Titan’s river cruises

On our river cruises, wake up to a different view each morning (a hillside vineyard one day, a cathedral-crowned town the next) or sit up on deck as you round a river bend to reveal a fairytale castle. You’ll also step off your ship straight into the heart of each destination - no need for transfers or lengthy shuttle services.

River cruising is a fantastic way to experience a region. In most cases on a Titan’s river cruises, you’ll moor up in or close to the centre of towns, meaning more time exploring and less time travelling to and from the ship. The scenery is constantly changing, too, with the most stunning stretches of waterway usually sailed during daylight hours so you can fully appreciate them.

And with excellent dining onboard, where wine and beer are included with each meal, elegant and spacious cabins, as well as entertainment including cooking demonstrations, river cruises are a fantastic way to travel at a more leisurely pace.

On some our best river cruises, sail along the scenic waterways of the Rhine or Danube on one of our exclusive Titan cruises on board MS Serenade 1 or MS River Discovery II. Explore the beauty of Portugal’s Douro or perhaps venture a little further afield with an unforgettable Cairo, Alexandria and Nile cruise or a voyage along the USA’s mighty Mississippi River.

Not sure if river cruising is for you?

Interested by the idea of river cruising but not sure if it’ll be your cup of tea? We sent a group of Titan travellers to join one of our escorted tours along the Rhine and Dutch Waterways. Watch our short video, and find out what they thought of their Titan river cruise, from the ever-changing landscapes to the joy of only having to unpack once.

World-Class Service On Board

On many river cruises, our tour managers will join you on board to make sure you have a truly memorable experience. They’re there to make sure everything is safe and running smoothly. And, as they’re a well-travelled bunch, they can give you a few expert tips to help you make the most of your trip.

On excursions, you’ll often be joined by a local guide, who’ll be able to share detailed insight into particular locations and attractions. On our exclusive Titan cruises, you’ll be provided with Quietvox headsets, which enable you to block out all other noise to clearly hear what your tour guide is saying as you explore.

Picture yourself sailing down some of Europe’s most captivating waterways and watch as the passing scenery slowly passes by. Springtime, too, is a wonderful time to experience our leisurely river cruises. On the Danube, cities including Budapest, will see concerts, festivals and arts come to life once more. In Holland, see thousands of vibrant and colourful tulips at the famous Keukenhof Gardens. The trees begin to bloom along the riverbanks of the Rhine, as the last vestiges of winter disappear and the sun begins to shine on its magnificent fairytale castles.

Cruise and tour

Why not extend our river cruises with a stay in the historic capital cities of Prague or Budapest, or perhaps take a three-night tour in Switzerland, including a trip on the world-famous Glacier Express?
