River Cruise

Enjoy an incredibly relaxing holiday that has hours of sightseeing opportunities and exciting shore excursions. Combine the best aspects of a rail holiday and cruise with a Rail Discoveries river cruise.

River Cruise Holidays

Sail along some of the most beautiful rivers in Europe with our range of river cruises, which combine two of the most relaxing modes of transport available - trains and ships - to provide travellers with a peaceful and memorable holiday.

Europe's mightiest rivers - the Danube, the Rhine, and the Rhône - all flow through historic capital cities, areas of outstanding natural beauty, and quaint villages. Sit back and enjoy the passing scenery from sun decks and observation lounges or join a shore excursion to the finest cultural and historical attractions; on our cruise holidays, you are free to experience Europe as you choose.

From a Tulips cruise in the Netherlands and Belgium, taking in the vast bulbfields of the Low Countries, to a festive-themed journey down the Rhine at Christmas or New Year, we have a cruise to suit every budget and personality. Your ship will be your floating hotel for the duration of your holiday, meaning you need only unpack once.
