River Cruise Holidays
It's not too difficult to see why cruise trips have grown in popularity. There surely isn't a better way to experience a unique viewpoint of an area than passing it by slowly along a river in a boat. You get the chance to soak up and take in the scenery as it changes before your eyes. The chance to flow gently into the heart of some of the most beautiful cities and towns in the world.
With Titan Travel, you have the choice of a wide variety of ships and cruise styles to suit all budgets and tastes. Whether you'd prefer to be sailing along one of the idyllic waterways in Europe such as the Danube or the Rhine on one of the many exclusive ships we sail.

Titan Travel VIP Door to Door Service
Whatever destination you choose, your holiday will always start from the moment you first leave your home, thanks to Titan Travel's VIP door-to-door service. With this, all the normal worries that come with that first day you set off on holiday disappear.
A driver for Titan Travel will come and collect you from your home address, or another of your choosing, and take you to the airport you are departing from. After you return from your break, we will be there waiting for you to bright you back from the airport to your home. We're industry-leaders when it comes to this service!
The World Class Service Continues Onboard
On most tours, the Titan Travel tour managers are onboard to make sure you have a truly memorable experience. They are there to make sure everything is safe and running smoothly and as they've normally visited specific destinations many times in the past, they are full of amazing expert tips.
Alongside the tour managers, you may even have a local guide with even more insight on particular locations and attractions. That's not all though, because on the tours, especially those in Europe, you may benefit from Quietcox headsets, which enable you to block out all other noise to hear exactly what your tour guide or manager is saying as you roll on by.Contact us to find out more about river cruises from Titan Travel.
What’s included on a Titan river cruise?
Value for money is always at the forefront when we design our holidays. And because these river cruises are exclusive to us, we’ve been able to wrap all kinds of fantastic extras (as well as our award-winning Titan touches) into our itineraries.
Every exclusive Titan river cruise includes:
- Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service
- Return flights from the UK
- Spacious 15m2 or 16m2 river-view cabins with en-suite bathrooms
- Breakfast, lunch and dinner
- Wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner
- Welcome buffet
- Gala dinner
- Bottled water in your cabin, replenished daily
- Tea and coffee at all times
- At least three excursions or visits
- Wi-Fi on board
- Port charges and airport taxes
- Onboard entertainment
What’s the food like?
The food we serve on board is all freshly prepared, with dishes inspired by the regions you’ll be sailing through.
Breakfast is a buffet affair, with eggs cooked to order if you fancy. Come lunchtime, there’s a four-course menu, plus a buffet of sandwiches and pasta dishes (and if you’re out and about, the chef will prepare a packed lunch for you).
As for dinner, you’ll start with an appetiser and soup of the day, before choosing between three main dishes. A selection of puddings and cheeses rounds things off. Still peckish? You’ll find late-night snacks in the panorama lounge.
Is there a dress code on board?
There’s no strict dress code for dining. Smart casual is the norm, although most people like to don a suit or cocktail dress for the gala dinner on the last night.
What is there to do on board?
Our river cruises aren’t all about sightseeing and shore excursions. We’ve designed them so you’ll have plenty of time to relax, too.
On board each ship, there’s an expansive sun deck with loungers perfectly positioned for the best views. Step inside and you’ll find a peaceful reading room and a lounge, plus a sauna (and a whirlpool on MS Bellejour) to indulge in some me time.
Some cruises will have on board activities on the agenda too, so you could learn the waltz while moored up in Vienna or paint a miniature wooden clog with the help of an artist from Amsterdam.
Is there evening entertainment?
Evenings tend to be fairly low-key on our cruises – picture cocktails, conversation and occasional live music, rather than the all-singing, all-dancing shows you might find on ocean cruise ships.
The panorama lounge is the hub of entertainment, except for the final night on your trip, where you can get dressed up (if you like) for a six-course farewell feast hosted by your captain in the restaurant.
Sail the Rhine, Danube and Dutch Waterways in 2019
The Netherlands’ windmill-lined waterways. The castle-dotted banks of the Rhine. The mighty Danube, edged by grand cities and quiet wine regions. Our exclusive river cruises take you along the most scenic waterways in Europe - and offer a uniquely ‘Titan’ experience every step of the way.
You’ll travel on one of our two exclusive river cruise ships, MS Bellejour and MS Serenade 1. By chartering these ships just for our customers, we’re able to tailor every aspect to ensure you have a seamless holiday experience from start to finish. Everything - food, excursions, entertainment - has been carefully thought-out by our team specifically to suit our customers.
As with all of our holidays, you’ll enjoy our award-winning VIP door-to-door travel service, taking you from your front door to your cabin (and back again) at no extra cost.
