River cruises in Europe

The best way to explore Europe

Imagine a holiday that enables you to explore many of Europe’s beautiful cities, historic towns, UNESCO World Heritage Sites and iconic landmarks in one seamless journey. Imagine going to sleep in Bratislava and waking up in Budapest. Imagine travelling from destination to destination and needing to unpack only once. Imagine strolling out of your room ready for a dip in the heated swimming pool and having a drink waiting for you when you get out. Imagine enjoying a light breakfast or lunch alfresco, as you admire the beautiful landscapes and breathe in the fresh air.

Take one of Emerald Waterways' river cruises in Europe and you don’t have to imagine; it’s simply what you can expect. From Rhine river cruises to voyages along the River Danube, so much of Europe can be explored through European river cruising; some of the most enticing cities and most charming towns in all the world sit along the banks of these mighty waterways.
