River Cruising Webinar

Join our fun and informative river cruising webinar series this July to learn more about river cruising and let our independent view and expertise take you beyond what the brochure tells you.

The rivers of the world are of course still flowing and we are all longing to get back to the voyages of discovery and enrichment they offer. We are still here to inspire and inform and we invite you to enjoy a virtual journey with us.

With so many destinations and companies all claiming to be “the best”, it can be hard to choose.  Plus, at this time, what is river cruising in a Covid-19 world going to look like?

Having worked in the river cruise sector of travel for over 7 years, we have sailed the rivers, seen the sights, tasted the food and yes – drunk the local alcohol – so that our customers have the best insights and enjoy the best experiences that river cruising can offer them.

River Cruising Webinar Wednesdays can give you answers

Calling on our knowledge, our opinions and our connections within the trade, why not join us to find out more before booking your next holiday?  Summer 2021 and 2022 are already on sale so it makes it easy to dream and plan.

River cruises visit many incredible destinations and are able to offer different cultural experiences in Europe to couples, groups, families and single travellers.  River cruising is such an easy and relaxing way to travel with only having to unpack once, and there are so many different sights to see and people to meet along the way. For the more adventurous, why not cycle along the Danube or hike to Melk Abbey as just some of the more active options available. You’ll find out more by joining us for our “Webinar Wednesday” sessions.

Are you:

A seasoned river cruiser who is for looking for or curious about new river cruise holidays and destinations to try?

A curious traveller, eager to learn about history and culture but haven’t yet tried river cruising and want to know more?

An ocean cruiser who has not yet tried river cruising and are wondering if it will fit your needs?

You are all very welcome to join us for our fun river cruising webinar sessions which will take you beyond what the brochure tells you

“Discover River Cruising Through Eastern Europe: From Hungary to the Black Sea”

Often referred to as a “Lower Danube” river cruise, the most curious of travellers are discovering the lesser known countries and heritage of Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria and Romania on this stunning river voyage.  The place names are less known but the areas are exotic in beauty with the culmination of the cruise being in the biodiversity of the Danube Delta. An off the beaten track river cruise for the culturally curious as well as bird watchers, the cruise includes the mystic of the Danube’s famed Iron Gates and a journey to the Black Sea at the end of Europe.

“Discover River Cruising through The Netherlands & Belgium at Tulip Time”

A great time to experience the waterways of The Netherlands and Belgium is on a springtime river cruise.  The scenery consists of Tulips and blooming flowers and fishing villages and windmills.  The medieval villages of Bruges, Middelburg and Ghent come alive with so much to discover.  A story book journey through canals and the art of Rubens and Michelangelo and the world famous Keukenhof gardens.  The Floralia flower festival takes place in Brussels throughout April and is a great excuse for anyone who loves flowers and gardening to take the short trip over the channel to the lowlands next Spring.  The experience should all be washed down with a little Belgium beer or hot chocolate, a few sweet waffles, lots of cheese and lots of laughs!  A fun river cruise to start the year and one we highly recommend.

Join us to discover what a journey through The Netherlands and Belgium can offer you and your travelling companions.

“Discover River Cruising at Christmas and New Year”

Let us paint that picture for you.

Join us to discover what a river cruise at Christmas and New Year can offer you and your travelling companions.
