River Cruises

Key points we offer:

Fully air-conditioned superior vessels with spacious cabins and en suite facilities

Spacious sun deck with comfortable sun bathing area,

Al fresco dining with full board featuring fresh local ingredients

There is something endearingly tranquil about a river cruise. Civilization have developed along rivers through history, so there’s no better route along which to explore cities, and communities, temples and fortifications, local traditions and natural beauty spots. A strong sense of history emerges along these waterways that have been major routes of communication for hundreds and sometimes thousands of years.
As with all our small ship cruises,, on our River Cruises it is easy to form special bonds with new people while you are sharing memorable discoveries, and indeed, many of our travellers have made lifelong friendships on our trips.
The Nile cruise vessels featured are state-of-the-art, with spacious lounge bar and café, single sitting dining extensive sun deck with swimming pool and cabins with French balconies that allow you to enjoy the fresh air without compromising on cabin space. Our fleet is also eco-friendly, with quieter, more efficient engines, energy efficient hull design, water and energy saving features, and more.
Our purpose built canal boats combine traditional style with modern comforts, and with just 11 guest cabins you will enjoy the warm and friendly atmosphere that only small group cruising can provide.

Small Ship & Mega Yacht Cruises

Big cruise ships have a massive, often life-changing, impact on local economies and local cultures – and not always for the better. When you visit unspoiled, traditional local communities with Seafarer, in small groups, you do so in the knowledge that, whilst your visit is certainly most welcome, you will not be changing the places you see.

Our visits are still economically beneficial, but they are non-intrusive. Unlike big ship cruising, we do not impact on their way of life or the character of these communities.  In all these ways, we are hopefully doing our bit towards the goal of ensuring that these beautiful and largely unspoilt areas are there to be enjoyed by future generations.
