European River Cruises

Discover Europe's most beautiful rivers

Explore the countless delights of these enthralling and enchanting waterways, from the man-made wonders and low-lying landscapes of the Netherlands and Flanders, to the mighty Rhine, the meandering Moselle and other tributaries, to the sweeping reaches of the ‘Blue Danube’.

Marvel at exquisite riverbank views as you wind through some of Europe’s most atmospheric cities and most breath-taking countryside on an unforgettable European river cruise. Glide along the enchanting River Rhine with its vineyard-backed villages and fairy-tale castles, or enjoy fine architecture, stunning scenery and good food on the romantic "Blue" Danube.

Sip a glass of port on the banks of the River Douro. Gaze at Alpine valleys, medieval towns, verdant vineyards and fairy-tale castles along the pretty, meandering Moselle, or discover cosmopolitan Mannheim on the River Neckar, and the great city of Frankfurt on the River Main. 

Admire the grandeur of modern French engineering as you pass under the Seine-spanning Pont de Normandie, then sail upriver to historic Joan of Arc city Rouen. Take in the glorious Dutch countryside, and explore the canals and cobblestones of Amsterdam, historic Rotterdam, and picturesque towns and villages on a Dutch river cruise. 

Whichever European river cruise you choose, when you cruise with Newmarket Holidays you'll experience fascinating itineraries and excursions, and the leisurely atmosphere and pace of life on board an A-ROSA river cruise vessel.
