Affordable luxury isn’t a term you hear often but Riviera Travel’s carefully crafted itineraries promise just that. Their fleet of five-star river cruise ships can take you from the waterways of Europe to the banks of the Nile and the Ganges, itineraries tailored to showing the parts of a place that people call home in a way that sees you live like a local for a little while.
Riviera’s river cruisers are as known for their crew as they are their design. All sailings are under the watchful and ever-entertaining eye of a Riviera Tour Manager, many of whom have been with the river cruise line for a decade or more. They’re a real highlight; personable, knowledgeable and attentive in a way we all appreciate, nobody is experienced to show you the world’s waterways quite like them. The rest of the crew are equally attentive, always intuitive and never obtrusive; on small ships holding just a handful of guests, and with a typical ratio of just four guests per crewmember, it doesn’t take long before you feel like part of the family.
Exceptional service is guaranteed but it doesn’t come with the price tag you might expect. From transfers and flights to a majority of French balcony cabins, indulgent breakfasts in bed to Welcome and Captain’s Dinners, so much is included with your Riviera Travel fare. And of course, adventure and exploration comes as standard; take your pick from ships poised to show you destinations that range so broadly from Provence, Amsterdam and Iberia, to Russia, Egypt, China and Southeast Asia.
From the picture-perfect Douro Valley to the majestic Danube, the historic Nile and the mighty Mekong. There’s a good reason that river cruising is known as the most relaxing way to travel. Glide along the most incredible waterways around the world on Riviera’s boutique-style luxury river ships. Their carefully created excursions are crafted to suit every taste, from history buffs to culture lovers. There’s nothing quite like cruising into the heart of your destination, soaking up the river views as you enjoy an incredible inclusive experience.
I’m an 80’s baby, and have just had my first experience on a river cruise with Riviera Travel. I’d love to share my day-by-day experience with you first hand – I hope you enjoy it.
Luxury, boutique river ships is what best describes Riviera Travels ships. World class, primarily Swiss-built and operated, they are rated as some of the finest ships on the European waterways. As you cruise between cities and towns, relax in the privacy of your own spacious, cabin or suite. Alternatively, there are many comfortable areas on deck where you can unwind with a refreshing drink and enjoy the passing views.
