Have you considered a European River Cruise rather than a City Break?

Earlier this year, Riverside Luxury Cruises, set sail for the first time, offering guests true luxury on some of Europe's most breath-taking waterways. With UK and Irish travellers ready to set off on their Summer holiday, Riverside Luxury Cruises explains why travellers should consider swapping their city break for a river cruise instead:

Why Should I consider a river cruise over a city break holiday?

1. Cost 

For some, there may be a misconception that cruising is a more expensive option compared to its land-based counterparts. But with three-night 5* ultra-luxury cruises starting from £646 per person, Riverside Luxury Cruises is already making great strides in busting this myth! Guests can also add an excursions package for just £264 per person, entitling them to experience world-class excursions at each port. From wine tasting in the Wachau Valley to local culinary classes in Bratislava and active hiking and biking all included too – there really is something for everyone and every budget.

What's more, flights are included* for all guests booking a river cruise of seven nights or more.

2. Time

Short on time and want to see as much possible? River cruising is the answer! Cruising is a great way of packing in as many experiences as possible in a short amount of time. Sit back and relax as you cruise effortlessly to your next destination. Riverside Luxury Cruises' 'Captivating Danube Capitals Westbound' cruise whisks guests away to three different countries – Hungary, Slovakia and Austria - in just three nights showcasing the best of each destination. Days one and two will present the architectural beauty of Budapest, followed by Bratislava and Vienna.  

3. Solo traveller

Travelling solo and don't want to pay a premium? Riverside Luxury Cruises believes that single travellers shouldn't have to pay a supplement just because they're travelling alone. That's why all individual guests, staying in a Riverside Mozart Harmony Suite on the River Danube, will pay no single supplement on all departures in 2023 and 2024. Full board fares are available from £646 per person.    

4. Guaranteed excellence

High standards? Then look no further. Riverside Luxury Cruises is in a class of its own, defined by its service culture and crew-to-guest ratio of one crew member per suite. Nowhere will this be better exemplified than by its butlers, who go above and beyond to assist each and every guest with their needs from 24-hour room service to excursions and special requests for one-of-a-kind experiences. Guests can expect the largest suites on the rivers, most with floor to ceiling windows and marble bathrooms. Dine in one of four first-class restaurants, where award-winning chefs, create ever changing specialities inspired by locally sourced and seasonal produce from each region.

5. Convenience

Ever feel like you need a holiday after your holiday? Maybe try a river cruise. Every detail will be taken care of, so guests can unwind and feel the true benefit of slow travel. With airport transfers and excursions all arranged, seasonal dishes with the freshest of ingredients and a 24-hour butler service included, there really is no detail left unturned. And most convenient of all is the need to pack and unpack just the once to enjoy your multi-destination, ultra-luxury river cruise with Riverside Luxury Cruises!
