Discover the sleepy villages and vibrant cities of Europe on a TUI River Cruise. Their fleet of exclusively adult-only ships sail along the Danube, Rhine, Moselle, Main, and Dutch and Belgian waterways, gliding you past jaw-dropping landscapes before making port in the beating heart of the destination.
Among the many things you'll discover onboard are fantastic service, first-class facilities, tasty dining, and an intimate and friendly atmosphere for adults. There is nothing better than relaxing on the deck and watching the world go by or doing yoga in the sun. During the evenings, enjoy the finest cuisine, enjoy entertainment in the observatory, or relax in the Club Lounge with a post dinner cocktail.
There are a variety of itineraries that are designed to offer a distinctive experience. In addition, you have the option of paying for additional excursions, or you are able to explore on your own. Discover the jewels of the region with the help of a local guide or indulge in local beer and wine tasting trips to quaint towns.
TUI River Cruises attract a broad cross-section of Brits, many of them familiar with TUI's land-based holidays. In keeping with the general river cruise demographic, a middle-aged and more mature crowd are likely to be attracted to the adults-only river cruises; many of them first-timers who have previously taken ocean cruises with Marella or holidays with TUI. The company's customers are generally easy-going and fun-loving, with a focus on value for money rather than luxury.
In keeping with its ocean ships and river cruising in general, the onboard dress code is casual. There are no formal nights on river cruises, although some passengers like to dress up a bit more for events such as the gala dinner.
Almost. There are a very large number of inclusions over and above most other river cruise lines. Fares will include direct flights from UK airports, up to 23kg luggage allowance, transfers to and from the ship, all meals, wine, beer and soft drinks at lunch and dinner, unlimited Wi-Fi and tips. Bar drinks are not included, but guests can upgrade to all-inclusive drinks package if they wish.
Daily tailor-made shore excursions -- with passengers free to choose as few or as many as they want -- will include walking tours in ports of call and visits to places of interest such as museums and castles. There is live onboard entertainment each night.
