Discover European River Cruising with Jetline Cruises

River Cruises,

When most people think of a cruise, the first thing that comes to mind is steaming out onto the high seas on a massive ocean liner. And there’s a reason why they’re so popular too! For some, however, the thought of all those people and the size of the ship may be slightly overwhelming and a little ‘loud’ to fit their idea of a dream holiday. Well the good news is that you can still get the same luxury and freedom a cruise invokes in a much more low-key way – with river cruising.

At Jetline, we’re proud to offer some magical river cruise itineraries to introduce you to this serene, laidback way to travel. You can travel along some of Europe’s most spectacular waterways, visiting charming towns and cities to discover fascinating historical landmarks and enjoy memorable cultural and culinary experiences.

If it sounds like something you might be tempted by, allow us to elaborate!

Luxurious, Laidback River Cruising

For anyone who enjoys a quieter, more relaxing kind of getaway, river cruises represent the epitome of holiday perfection. You’ll feel far removed from the normal touristic experience as you glide slowly through some of the most magnificent scenery in the world along Europe’s iconic waterways. Breathe…

The Ships

Imagine the joy of taking in a full (and fulfilling) itinerary, without the hassle of packing, unpacking and staying a different hotel every night. The luxury vessels provide a beautifully appointed floating home-from-home, where you’ll be treated to five-star service and facilities all the way, with a choice of accommodation to suit your needs and budget.

Dining is always an occasion on board, and you’ll enjoy world-class restaurant quality food prepared with fresh produce by the on-board chefs every day. Along with the incredible gastronomic experiences, you’ll be able to sample the renowned wines of the very areas through which you travel.

The Experience

When it comes to shore excursions, you’ll have a wide range from which to choose, meaning you can do just as much or as little as you like, with all the details take care of. There’ll be plenty of time to disembark and explore towns and cities, small and large. The joy of travelling in this way is that you’re able to enjoy a genuine cross-section of attractions and activities, and the unhurried pace means you can immerse in the local culture far easier than if you were running from one site to another in order to tick it all off.

The Destinations

There’s a huge choice of destinations where you can enjoy the delights of river cruising along some of the most famous waterways in Europe and their tributaries. Fancy exploring the stunning beauty of the Danube, the Rhine, the Rhône or the Elbe? Or perhaps some of the lesser-known, but no less beautiful, ones like the Havel, the Oder, the Duoro or the network of Dutch and Belgian waterways pique your interest. Wherever you choose to go, two things are for sure: firstly, it will be the most relaxed and memorable holiday of your life and, secondly, it won’t be your last river cruise!
