– and it starts the moment you step out your front door. Click here to find out more.
Fly from an airport near you – as much as possible, we’ll offer you the option of flying from whichever airport is most convenient for you. Below is a list of the entire airport with international flights available for each holiday, giving you the choice of up to 13 departure airports (all subject to availability and supplement). This includes locally flying options for all of our no-fly cruises – so you’ve got the flexibility to choose the travel option that best fits your need. Alternatively, where routes allow, we’ll arrange a connecting flight from your local airport to London to join your international flight, at no additional cost.
Wherever you choose to fly from, we’ll still pick you up from home and drop you at the airport door. Plus, we’ll arrange complimentary transfers between the destination airport and hotel or ship on the first and last days of your holiday. Click here to find out more about your flight options.
Value for money is always at the forefront when we design our holidays. And because these 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.
For starts, we’ll include at least three handpicked excursions in every cruise (plus a whole host of optional ones, so you can tailor your trip to suit your interests). You’ll get an audio headset on each one too, so you’ll always be able to hear your guide or tour manager perfectly.
We’ve really invested in the onboard cuisine, with fine dining experiences, four-course welcome lunches and a six-course gala dinner. Wine, beer and soft drinks during meals are all included, plus there’s complimentary tea and coffee available around the clock.
As for where you’ll be sleeping, every cabin is recently renovated and features all the mod cons you’d expect. They’re nice and spacious too (cabins on MS Serenade 1 even have separate bath tubs and showers in the bathroom – something of a rarity on river cruises).
Life on the river
New to our river cruises? Here’s what you can expect on (and off) the ship…
Take it easy – 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. Onboard each ship, there’s an expansive sun deck with loungers perfectly positioned for the best vies. 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 onboard 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.
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, 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 cheese round things off. Still peckish? You’ll find late-night snacks in the panorama lounge. There’s no strict dress code for dining. Smart casual is the norm, although many people like to don a suit or cocktail dress for the gala dinner on the last night.
