Australian Pacific Touring is a third generation family company and one of Australia's leading tour operators. Back in 1927, APT wasn't the multi-faceted company it is today, though pioneering it was. In response to a strike on Melbourne trams, Bill McGeary attached a bus body onto a tray track as an alternative method of transport, and the seeds of an innovative travel company were sown. Today, APT is synonymous with inclusive luxury river cruising throughout Europe and cruise tours to worldwide destinations.
Together with AMA Waterways, APT launched a fleet of custom-designed European river cruise ships and in just a few years became a favourite among travellers. APT's 2011 maiden voyages of its new Concerto Class ships signifies a shift in the river cruise industry with larger vessels and the introduction of twin cabin balcony suites. APT river cruises take in destinations throughout Europe and Russia. APT also organises cruises and cruise tours to destinations in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Alaska and throughout Asia.
While kids are generally welcome on APT River Cruises, there are usually no dedicated kids' activities or child-minding facilities.
The APT European River cruises offer mouth-watering menu options that generally consist of heart-warming soups, fresh produce, choice cut meats, market fresh fish and delicious seafood.
Breakfast aboard an APT Cruise is usually a lavish gourmet buffet where you can choose from an assortment of breads, croissants and pastries, seasonal fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals and smoked salmon. More familiar breakfast items are also available for guests who prefer a more traditional start to the day. After a morning shore excursion, a delicious lunch is served that generally includes hot and cold appetizers, soup, entree and dessert.
In the evening, guests are greeted at the entrance to the dining room by a friendly Maitre d' who makes everyone feel at ease. Enjoy delicious cuisine and free-flowing wines from local vintners. The APT team including the extraordinary chefs know how to orchestrate a truly memorable dining experience.
