Honouring the beauty of some of the world’s most aesthetically-stimulating waterways, each member of our fleet has been carefully designed to complement the flow of the rivers we sail.

Tasteful and modern décor provides a wonderful setting from which to enjoy the picturesque landscapes that pass by your window, whether that’s while relaxing in your sumptuous suite or stateroom, talking with new friends in the spacious public areas or reading a book poolside.

Custom-built to cater for all, if you can tear yourself away from the peaceful surroundings of the pool area, there is so much more to discover. If you like to keep active, you can do so in the contemporary gym, or head to the Sun Deck at the top of the ship, for a jog or leisurely walk on the running track.

Familiarise yourself with the ships interior features and uncover a world of comfort and innovation in our collection of videos below.

Relax by the pool


One of the ways we look to bring the highlights of an ocean cruise to the intimacy of Europe’s rivers is with our on-board heated pool. The pool transforms into a cinema at night. An innovative function which sees the floor rise through the pool’s surface.
