Great Cruise Escapes - 2022 European River Cruises

Join us on a Great Cruise Escape as Europe’s enchanting network of rivers sweep through culture-rich cities, towns as old as time, and regions of unparalleled beauty.
Enjoy a dalliance with the Danube as historic capital cities come to life during guided tours and bike rides, and journey through the fairytale Rhine region enjoying its many UNESCO World Heritage-listed sites. Taste your way along the Rhône as it weaves a path through the heart of the Provence region, from Lyon to Arles, and discover a slower way of life in Portugal with time for vineyard hikes and wine-tasting in the breathtaking Douro Valley. Each river is a gateway to cultural enlightenment and there is no better way to acquaint yourself, than on board an award- winning Emerald Cruises Star-Ship.

Secure your 2022 European river cruise today and save up to £1,400 per couple, and enjoy a FREE Premium Drinks Package, entitling you to a selection of delicious drinks all day long whilst on board. Plus, save an extra 10% off selected cabins when you pay for your holiday 12 months prior to departure with our Super Earlybird Offer. If your desired itinerary is sailing within 12 months, don’t worry, you can still take advantage of this offer when you book and pay in full on the same day.

As part of our Cruise with Confidence Assurance we are offering a complimentary Deposit Protection Plan, valued at £100 per person and our Flexible Booking Policy allows you to book in complete confidence.

Brand-new for 2022 we are excited to launch our Special Interest Cruises. Thoughtfully curated by our expert journey planners, we have reinvented three of our most popular river cruise itineraries to feature a collection of specially selected excursions and experiences with a focus on celebrating the arts and culture of the Rhine and Danube, and the centuries of wine-making history along the banks of the Moselle. We have also added to our collection of Epic Voyages, our fantastic selection of longer duration cruises which combine two, or more of our amazing itineraries, specifically designed to complement each other perfectly.
