At Riviera River Cruises, we are proud to call ourselves ‘Masters of Travel’, creators of the finest River Cruise vacations – because our specialists go the extra mile when creating our cruises, you can be assured that every detail has been crafted with your experience in mind.

We don’t just create great itineraries; we personally inspect every cruise at least twice to ensure that all the finer details have been ironed out and every moment of your trip is truly exceptional.

Our itineraries perfectly balance seeing iconic sights with hidden gems, to take you off the tourist trail and under the skin of a destination. 

We’re so confident in the quality of our cruises that we offer a ‘happiness guarantee’; if you’re not completely happy by the second day of your vacation, we will support you to make the flight change arrangements, pay the fare increase and change fees and give a full refund.

  • We personally inspect every trip at least twice, compared to competitors who build itineraries from desk research​

  • Our expertise means we can create perfectly balanced and fully immersive itineraries, designed to take you off the tourist trail and under the skin of a destination​

  • Our ‘happiness guarantee’ promises that if you’re not completely happy after 48 hours, we will support you to make the flight change arrangements, pay the fare increase and change fees and give a full refund.

Quality is at the heart of every Riviera River Cruise. Look closely at our itineraries to see the small but important details that stand our vacations head and shoulders above the rest; luxurious modern river cruise ships, immersive itineraries, and of course, so much included in the price you pay.

We believe that luxury travel should not cost a fortune and we offer the best value for money – we’re so confident you won’t find the same quality of experience for less elsewhere that if you do, we’ll refund you the difference.

Our prices are fair with no hidden extras. All port fees and taxes are included. You can book early and be confident that you will always pay the best price at the time you book.


  • ​You'll always pay the best price at the time of booking and, if we reduce the price after you book, we'll refund you the difference

  • You cannot find the same quality experience for less at the time of booking - and if you do, we'll match the price​

  • So much is included; all meals onboard, luxurious accommodation and an included excursion every day​

At Riviera River Cruises, we know that there’s no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to the perfect travel experience; and that’s why we have built in choice into every aspect of our vacations, putting you in control.

With an extensive collection of cruises catering to all tastes, select the destination and date to suit you; then customise your experience as desired; add a drinks package or add special excursions.


The choice is yours – and we’ll do the hard work behind the scenes to bring your perfect cruise to life.  But freedom and flexibility doesn’t mean a lack of support. You’ll be looked after and supported by our award-winning team every step of the way, and if anything goes awry, we’ll take care of it – so you can enjoy every moment. ​
