Five-star river cruise ships
A river cruise on one of Riviera Travel's five-star ships is like staying in a floating, luxury boutique hotel. Primarily Swiss-built and operated, they are rated as some of the finest river cruise ships to grace Europe's waterways. River cruise ships are less crowded, meaning they can feel more intimate and relaxed. Many of Riviera Travel's river cruise ships hold from approximately 170 to 190 passengers.

Europe's greatest rivers
Riviera has cruises along some of the world's most famous rivers, including the mighty Danube, the second largest river in Europe. The famous Rhine swathed with medieval towns, castles, vineyards, and the picturesque Douro with photogenic valleys and vineyards. They also cruise along the Seine, Moselle, Main, and majestic Volga in Russia.

Sail the Danube
The Danube is one of the world's most storied rivers and one of its longest, flowing for a staggering 2,860km through ten countries, from the Black Forest of Germany to the Black Sea of Romania. Most Danube river cruises travel along one section of the river on a round-trip itinerary, mooring at various points of interest en route. Springing up in Donaueschingen's town in Germany's Black Forest, this great waterway flows southeast for 1,785 miles before emptying itself into the Black Sea at Sulina in eastern Romania. It also flows through four national capital cities - Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest, and Belgrade - more than any other river in the world. Gliding peacefully between its famous and endlessly enchanting river banks, you'll experience for yourself the calm delights that inspired "the beautiful blue Danube" of Johann Strauss's immortal waltz and lullaby. Music is everywhere on the river Danube's shores – from Mozart's wild genius in Salzburg to Beethoven, Brahms, and an entire family of Strausses in classical Vienna.

Cruise the Rhine
Traveling 766 miles from the Swiss Alps to Rotterdam, the majestic River Rhine is genuinely one of Europe's greatest international waterways. Enshrined in the culture and literature of the six countries through which it passes, no other river in the world has so many old and famous cities on its banks. From the comfort of your first-class floating hotel, your Rhine cruise will transport you effortlessly through the most enchanting landscapes that continuously changes from the gentle and serene to the sheerest and dramatic.

Experience the Douro
The Douro's age-old banks remain as enchanting as ever, covered as they are with peaceful terraces where olives, almonds, and grapes are cultivated much as they always have been. How can such a picturesque river valley - with its dramatic cliffs, lush hillsides, medieval walled villages, and fine vineyards - remain so relatively undiscovered? How can so few others have enjoyed the sensation of basking on a sun deck as the unmistakable chirping of crickets and the fragrant scents from the surrounding hillsides pervade the warm evening air? You'll feel that your river cruise on the Douro is a real revelation, taking you deep into one of the most unspoilt corners of Europe. For 70 miles of the Douro's 557-mile length, the river forms part of Spain and Portugal's national border. Its narrow canyons made it a historical barrier for invasions and an enduring cultural and linguistic divide. On your Douro river cruise, you'll see the very best that both sides of this fascinating river have to offer. There are plenty of beautiful sights to satisfy your eyes and many fantastic tastes to satisfy our taste buds.
