APT River Cruises in Europe

APT have an abundance of itinerary options available throughout Europe, many of which include a comprehensive land journey in conjunction with APT’s luxury river cruises.

One of the most iconic river cruising journeys is that between Amsterdam and Budapest along the Rhine River, Main River and Danube River.  APT’s ‘Magnificent Europe’ itinerary undertakes this iconic river journey – cruise for 14 nights on the traditional Amsterdam to Budapest itinerary or travel on one of the extended river and land journeys.  Explore the cobbled streets of Paris; tour the gothic architecture of Prague; immerse yourself in the history of Germany or undertake a full exploration of the eastern Bloc; eat your way through France and Italy; discover the mountains of Switzerland; witness the magic of the northern lights; or navigate Britain and Ireland. If you would like to focus more on cruising the area of the Danube River there are a number of itineraries that focus on the Balkans including Hungary, Serbia and Romania.

Immerse yourself in the romantic French culture with itineraries on the Rhone River, Seine River, Garonne River and Dordogne River.  You can cruise the Rhone and Seine Rivers exclusively over 7 nights as well as Garonne and Dordogne River combinations over 7 nights.  Alternatively, you can combine your French Rivers for a thorough exploration of the region for up to 26 nights.

Witness the beauty of Portugal’s countryside with a cruise along the Douro River.  The Douro Delights river cruise voyage between Porto and Barca d’Alva is an 8 night voyage, however you can add an extension so you travel between Lisbon and Madrid.  Alternatively extend your journey even further with the addition of a river cruise through Bordeaux’s wine country or a more in-depth exploration of Spain.

Uncover Russia’s deep history via its waterways. Cruise the Neva River and Volga River between St Petersburg and Moscow over 12 nights, or add an extension to explore the treasures of the Baltics with 10 additional nights overland through Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

The Christmas Markets in Europe are like no other, and APT have a number of river cruise journeys to show you the best of them. Cruising down the Rhine, Main and Danube Rivers these Christmas Markets cruises range from 20 to 24 nights duration.

Asia

A cruise along the Irrawaddy River is ready to introduce you to the magic of Myanmar, one of the world’s least explored destinations.  Cruise options range from 14 to 29 nights and can also integrate Vietnam and Cambodia river cruising on the Mekong River into the itinerary.  A number of these cruises also visit Inle Lake known for its stunning floating gardens.

If you’d like to focus exclusively on the Mekong River and the Vietnamese and Cambodian communities that border it, APT have a number of itinerary options available.  If you’re looking for a shorter journey, 7 to 12 night cruises between Ho Chi Minh and Siem Reap show you highlights of Vietnam and Cambodia, however if you would like to also experience the north of Vietnam you will be looking for itineraries of 20 days or more.  These itineraries can also integrate China into the mix.

Cruises on the Yangtze River in China are aplenty with APT cruises.  Itineraries of 12 to 21 nights can introduce you to the highlights of China in a land and river journey with itineraries between Beijing and Shanghai.  Longer itineraries that include Yangtze River cruising will also incorporate another country into its journey. As well as the Best of China, Vietnam and Cambodia itineraries, there are also options to combine a Chinese river exploration with a Japanese rail discovery.

Elsewhere in Asia, India provides some amazing river cruise itineraries with journeys through the Ganges River or Kerala Backwaters.  These itineraries, which range from 16 to 23 nights, combine cruise, rail and flights to ensure you see the best that India has to offer on one luxury APT itinerary.
