What our clients are saying about their Luxury River Cruise


“Enjoyable Rhine river cruise”
Josephine - TAS, Australia Aug 2019
We very much enjoyed our first river cruise. The included excursions were excellent though started quite early in the morning (8 - 10am) so you had to be up quite early. The lower floor cabins were fine though probably not as well laid out as some of the ocean cruises we have been on. Some of the food was lovely other meals ok. The only thing which may put me off river cruising in future is that it was near impossible to spend time away from other travellers unless you were in your room. There were ...read more

“Magnificent Europe on Amabella”
Sandra - NSW, Australia Jul 2019

“Fascinating trip from Moscow to Berlin via St Petersburg and the Baltic States”
Lorraine & Roger - NSW, Australia Jul 2019
We booked this trip because it offered something a bit different from our usual European holidays, and we were not disappointed. The tour operator, Scenic, were excellent. Our trip started in Moscow, where we were met at the airport and driven to our cruise ship, the Scenic Tsar. This is a smaller ship than some others, only taking a maximum of 96 guests, which meant people mixed well and we met some lovely friends. Three tour directors looked after all our excursions, as well as offering some fun ...read more
