Life on Board

Life on board is full of delightful surprises



When you’re on board a Riviera River Cruises ship, you’re staying in a floating, luxury boutique hotel. Our fine fleet of five-star and four-star superior vessels are hallmarks of distinction and truly world-class. Primarily Swiss-built and operated, they are rated by the Berlitz Guide to River Cruising as some of the finest river cruise ships to grace Europe’s waterways.

Sustainable hardwoods, gleaming brass, polished copper, intricate wrought iron, and sparkling glass combine harmoniously with soft leather furnishings and tasteful colour palettes. Immediately striking is just how remarkably spacious and beautifully illuminated these vessels are. Set foot in the grand marble-floored lobby and you are bathed in natural light, streaming in through the glass roof of the impressive atrium above. Every step is taken to ensure our customers receive unparalleled standards of service and comfort. All our ships have an excellent ratio of crew to guests, so you are guaranteed personal attention. Our English-speaking crew will anticipate your every need in a manner which is intuitive and efficient yet discreet, graceful and friendly.

The exceptional pedigree continues through to our on-board facilities. Fully air-conditioned decks, all easily accessed via elevator or stairs, offer different vantage points of the surrounding scenery. Take in sweeping views from a panoramic observation lounge and bar, complete with sumptuous seating and plush carpets. Most of our vessels feature a sauna, steam room, pool, fitness suite, library, and even a hair salon or treatment room. Complimentary Wi-Fi is also available on every ship.
