Cruises on the River Rhine

Medieval castles perch on mountains which stand veiled in lush vineyards whilst in the distance another historic port of call begins to emerge, on a cruise along one of Europe's mightiest rivers. 

Rhine River Escorted Cruises

From the peaks of Switzerland a trickle turns into a stream, eventually becoming the majestic Rhine, which then flows through the remarkable scenery of Germany, France and finally the Netherlands. Rhine river cruises navigate along this popular waterway, calling at fortified hill top towns and multi-cultural cities which are abundant in attractions.

This cross-continental route means that on just one journey it is possible to sample the famous chocolates and cheeses of Switzerland, explore the vineyards of France and see the famous windmills of Holland. 

About our cruises

Our brand new charter cruises have one-way itineraries, a range of specially crafted excursions and innovative on board entertainment. We've chartered the entire ship so you'll be travelling exclusively with other, like-minded travellers. 

You have the option to travel by train to your chartered cruise departure point, making the most of the comfort of First Class, or the value of Standard. Whichever way you prefer, you'll be escorted to your ship by your Tour Manager.

Another exciting option available to you when choosing our charter cruises is the opportunity to add a brief tour onto the beginning or end of your cruise. 

Our Cruises

Welcome to our brand new charter cruises. This is an exclusive new concept, and by chartering our own vessels we have been able to craft itineraries and service specifically to our customer's. 

Because we've chartered the whole ship, the only other travellers on board will be Great Rail Journeys customers, so you know you'll be in great company for the duration of your cruise.
