Summer River Cruises

There's no doubt that summer is an excellent time of year to choose for your river cruise, particularly if you intend to travel along on of the waterways of Europe. It's the weather that draws most people to choose June, July or August for their river cruise. Take a last minute river cruise in summer 2019, or book ahead for summer 2020. Summer 2021 ricer cruises will also be on sale soon.

As river cruises are not generally a popular choice for families, by booking a river cruise you can avoid the premium that is applied to many land-based breaks during the school holidays.

Where can you sail?

Summer offers the perfect climate for river cruises - whether you're relaxing in pavement cafes or admiring the views from the sun deck of your ship. This is even better when you pass the stunning scenery of the Rhine Gorge or the Douro Valley during your river cruise.

Other destinations include Asia's popular regions of Cambodia and Vietnam, where you can sail along the Mekong during the sunny summer months. Many river cruise ships also feature outdoor pools and with sun loungers - the perfect place to soak up the summer sun in the exotic climate.
