5 Excellent Reasons for taking a River Cruise

Check out the advantages and our reasons for going on a River Cruise for your next holiday.

1. Cruise iconic waterways

Discover the highlights of Europe, sail along the Danube, Rhine, Douro or Volga. You can also enjoy worldwide detinations, such as the Nile in Egypt and the Mekong in Vietnam 

2. Wake up to a different view

The beauty of a River Cruise is that the ships are much smaller than ocean cruise liners, which allows them to navigate through smaller waterways, meaning you can experience many adventures along the way and dock in the very heart of cities or towns. 

3. Enjoy on-shore activities 

Every day will be an exciting experience in a new destination. You will enjoy guided city tours, discover many hidden gems, go on optional excursions and have time at your own leisure.  

4. It's Relaxing 

You will travel from one fascinating destination to another, while never having to unpack! Each ship offers a range of fantastic facilities, meaning you can sit back, relax and enjoy seeing the sights. Take our Danube Taster River Cruise, sail along the Rhine (Basel - Cologne) or (Cologne - Cologne) or discover our Douro River Cruise all with nicko cruises.

5. It's all inclusive

Our holidays include return flights, guided transfers, and full board accommodation aboard your vessels.
