A European river cruise brings you to the world’s most striking places from a new vantage point. Even if you’ve toured the sights of Europe before, you’ve never seen them quite like this. Cruise down the Elbe from the North Sea to Prague with stops at ultra-modern architectural marvels and 18th-century castles. Journey from the Swiss Alps, taking in the breathtaking beauty of the craggy mountain peaks and pristine waters, to Paris, with all of its lively charms and opportunities for shopping, dining, and up-close encounters with the most treasured art in the world.
If warmer climates call, we offer Western European cruise options to Spain and Portugal. Sail to the Canary Islands and watch the surfers catch waves along the coast as you wander the black sand beaches. Bask in the bright blue waters of the French Mediterranean, enjoying the crosscurrent of French and Italian influences on the distinct culture of Corsica.
Luxury Cruise Connections brings you curated itineraries and exclusive tour options to design your ideal cruise and vacation experience. Sample paella beneath an Andalusian sunset as you cruise from Barcelona to Lisbon. Or cross from Western to Eastern Europe with a cruise that takes you from Budapest to Bucharest, with stops in Serbia and Bulgaria to see ancient churches, Art Nouveau spas, and the limestone cliffs of the Iron Gate, one of the most famous sights in the Lower Danube.
A visit to Europe is a chance to walk the same streets and travel the same waterways as some of the most famous minds in history. Transport yourself back in time with a European river cruise along the Rhine while Holland’s famous tulips bloom, with the country’s picturesque windmills and green fields making a peaceful and elegant backdrop. Afterward, you’ll follow in the steps of Mozart with a stop in Linz — where he wrote some of the most enduring music of all time.
