River Cruising With Swift Travel

Whether you are looking to explore the Nile, the Danube or the Mekong, Swift Travel can help you book your perfect river cruise. Some of the world’s most famous and desirable cities sit on river banks, making river cruises the perfect way to see and experience a diversity of cultures and iconic landmarks, all within one trip.

River cruises allow you to visit destinations which ocean cruise ships are unable to reach. You will travel on short, narrow vessels, slim enough to fit through river locks, with no more than 200 other passengers. However, getting on one of these smaller ships doesn’t mean compromising on luxuries; you will still have access to a comfortable cabin, high quality dining options and an array of entertainment facilities.

You will dock in more centrally located ports, which are too small for ocean cruise liners, giving you quicker access to the cities you want to discover. Additionally, because the distance between ports is smaller, you have fewer “sea days”, giving you more time to spend exploring your dream destinations.

There is an astonishing range of unique attractions to see while on a river cruise. The Danube River passes through famous, culture rich cities like Munich, Prague and Vienna, while a Nile river cruise gives you the chance to visit Cairo and the opportunity to see the Great Pyramids of Giza.

River Cruise Line Partners

We at Swift Travel have partnerships with a great number of cruise lines, giving you a wealth of choice when booking your cruise holiday. Our portfolio of close partners includes some of the world’s leading cruise lines, each of which visit highly sought after destinations and are equipped with high quality facilities, to provide an excellent cruise experience for their passengers.

Choose your favourite cruise line from our range of highly reputable and well established river cruise line partners, including P&O, Princess River Cruises and Emerald Waterways. Also in our excellent range of well established, high quality river cruise lines are Crystal Cruises, AMA Waterways, Fred Olsen Cruises and Scenic Cruises.

While all of our cruise line partners meet our high standards of comfort, luxury and excellence, each one offers a unique river cruise experience. Within our range of river cruise lines, you’ll find a variety of luxurious suites, fitted with tasteful, but dissimilar decor and comfortable facilities, as well as a broad scope of onboard entertainment. The varied offering from our selection of cruise lines gives you the flexibility to pick the vessel and provider which best matches your preferences, allowing you to craft your dream river cruise holiday with ease.
