Discover the beauty of Europe’s rivers on our brand-new cruises!

Discover some of Europe’s most awe-inspiring landscapes in the most comfortable way possible, as you wake up to a different view every morning on one of our new river cruises.

The cabins with their private bathrooms are spacious and well-appointed, the cuisine is beautifully prepared, and you float by the most splendid of scenery just outside your window. The sights are wondrous: gentle rolling countryside, fairy-tale castles, dramatic terraced vineyards…

On excursions, you can explore the beauty of these destinations up close. Walk cobblestone streets, savor local wines, sip a coffee in a café, tour an ancient church, and so much more.


Choose from two of the great rivers of the world: The Danube and the Rhine.


The storied Danube is one of the world’s most beautiful and historic rivers. Travel serenely through the heart of three national capital cities: Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest. Scenic wonders and fascinating historical sights await at every turn: from imposing castles, mighty fortresses, exquisite Baroque churches and quiet abbeys to luxurious palaces, elegant gardens and the most wonderfully preserved medieval towns and villages.

Explore our cruise: The Blue Danube – new for 2020!

8 days, 7 nights, 20 meals; departures from April to October

The Rhine offers more than 1,000 years of history to explore, and a heritage of inspiring such notable visitors such as Goethe, Lord Byron, and William Turner, who all found inspiration for their artistic creations on the river. Traveling in Germany and Switzerland, see magical castles and picturesque medieval villages, breathtaking views of the spectacular Rhine Gorge, the beautiful Black Forest and majestic Swiss Alpine peaks.

CIE tours made everything extremely easy. We booked online and had them arrange our flights and transportation to and from the airport. When we finally met up with the tour group a day late, due to bad weather and flight delays, we found out that we had the best guide and driver, Colm Clarke. He was AMAZING- very accommodating and cheerful throughout the whole tour. He kept us informed and entertained all at the same time. I've taken several tours and he surpassed any guides I've dealt with by far. The stops and sights planned are excellent and truly give you a taste of Ireland and Scotland. I found the hotels to be comfortable with good service. I cannot stress how much I enjoyed this tour and how hard I;m working to get back to Ireland as soon as possible. Of course, I'll be booking with CIE again and requesting Colm (Seriously, he is the BEST).
I had a great travel agent that organised everything
Friendly and informative tour guides, nice accomodations, we saw so much while we were there!
