Riviera Travel - Best River Cruise Line

River Cruising is such a wonderful way to explore Europe’s very heart: you see and learn so much from the comfort of your very own floating hotel. Riviera Travel offer a selection of cruises along many of Europe’s beautiful waterways; the majestic Rhine and Danube – Europe’s essential arteries studded by atmospheric cities like Koblenz and Vienna. Plus there is the magical, meandering Moselle with its impossibly steep, riverside vineyards and the lesser known, yet equally beautiful River Main, twisting through Germany’s rural heart. Whilst in France, cruise along the Rhône flowing majestically from almost the Burgundy vineyards to Avignon and Van Gogh’s Arles, in the heart of sun-kissed Provence, whilst the Seine, flows from iconic Paris through countryside beloved by impressionist painters to medieval Rouen and historic Bayeux. Finally, there is the Douro with its dramatic terraced vineyards and with tourism being almost completely undeveloped, you feel you are discovering something the masses are unaware of! You see it all.

In 2019, Riviera Travel celebrated an astounding 35 years of providing high quality escorted European & Worldwide tours and river cruises plus offering unrivalled value for money.

We are incredibly passionate about our holidays, river cruises and service, and our entire staff both in the UK and overseas is dedicated to ensuring that Riviera Travel meet, indeed exceed the expectations of our discerning and loyal customers.

We were absolutely delighted therefore to yet again receive the prestigious ‘Recommended Provider’ status for River Cruises from ‘Which?’ (awarded March 2020) and even more so, since this is the 8th year in a row.


When you’re on board a Riviera Travel river cruise ship, you’re staying in a floating, luxury boutique hotel. Our fine fleet of ships are truly world-class. In 2019 we have introduced two brand-new five-star ships: MS George Eliot and MS William Wordsworth, and 2020 will see the addition of another all-suite five-star vessel, MS Geoffrey Chaucer.

Cruise around the British Isles

Brand new for 2021 is the chance to take a small-ship cruise around the British Isles. Four eight-day sailings are available in July 2021 – two around Scotland and two around Ireland – aboard the 158-passenger MS Seaventure, which was refurbished in 2019. The ‘Cruising Scotland’s Highlands & Islands’ itinerary departs from Edinburgh and takes in Aberdeen and Balmoral Castle before heading to Inverness, Orkney, Oban, the Outer Hebrides and County Donegal in Ireland. The ‘Cruising the Emerald Isle’ round-trip departs from Greenock and calls at Belfast, Dublin, Kilkenny, Galway, County Donegal and Cork. The two cruises can be booked back-to-back for an extended 15-day voyage.
