TUI River Cruises
Our river cruises
combine standout service and culture-packed excursions with nightly
entertainment and a choice of restaurants and lounges. All our ships are adults
only, and there’s a maximum of 155 guests onboard at any time, so you can be
sure that you’ll have your own space. It’s not just the cruise that’s included
with your package, either – your flights, transfers, three meals with drinks
per day, your tips, and your luggage allowance all come as standard. Plus,
you’ll get £120 of excursion credit per person, per
7 days after, to use towards our range of tours. When it comes to
destinations, our European river cruises tick off everything from big-name
cities like Budapest and Vienna, to hidden gems like Cochem and Durnstein.
River-wise, our itineraries sail on the Rhine, the Main, the Moselle, the
Danube, and the Dutch and Belgian waterways.
Think of our ships as floating, boutique hotels that’ll transport you from world-famous cities to under-the-radar towns – sometimes dropping in on more than one destination a day. You won’t be short on home comforts, plus there’ll be multiple restaurants and lounges for wining and dining. The outdoor space is in good supply, so you can take it all in from the top deck.
There’ll be a maximum of 155 guests on board at any time. As such, you can really get to know your fellow passengers throughout the week, while also having your own space. And, with one crew member to every four guests, you’ll be on first-name terms in no time. Plus, all our ships are adults only, so you can expect a grown-up atmosphere.
Our river cruises strike the perfect balance between onboard and ashore. Because the ships are smaller than ocean liners, you can look forward to a more relaxed pace, with plenty of time to take in a new destination. On board, meanwhile, you can practice Pilates on deck, tuck into an à la carte meal, or sip cocktails to live music in the lounge.
Uncovering Europe’s must-see destinations, without having to unpack more than once – that’s the beauty of river cruising. Lots of our cruises sail during the night, so you’ll get plenty of time in each place. Plus, if we’re packing two hotspots into one day, we’ll travel while you eat lunch, so you don’t lose any sightseeing time.
Each of our itineraries has been tailor-made to offer a different experience. What’s more they include £120 excursion credit per person, which means you can choose the tours that suit you. You can also pay for extra excursions, or explore on your own. Either way, you’ll be immersed in the local culture, getting under the skin of Europe’s cities and squirrelled-away villages.
We take care of all your travel – from flights to transfers – so you’ve got more time to soak up the scenery. We’ll sort direct flights from the UK, with most transfers limited to an hour or less, and a quick check-in process, freeing up more time to discover a new destination. Plus, the ships will usually tie up in town. If we dock a little further out, we’ll often put on a free transfer.
