Cruising isn't just about sailing over vast expanses of ocean - some of the best cruise experiences can be found in the winding rivers and waterways of Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Even if you're a cruising veteran, a smaller river ship, barge or river boat will grant you a completely new and unique experience of travelling on the water.

River cruises are a chance to see exotic lands and historical cities like you've never seen them before. From winding medieval streets and elegant architecture to steamy jungles and bustling marketplaces, a river cruise allows you to get closer and see more.
There's seeing Egypt, and there's seeing Egypt from a boat on the River Nile, cruising on a traditional felucca past ancient temples and cities. On a Viking River Cruise, you can experience the great waterways of the world, from the Middle East and Asia to East and West Europe. Discover the Valley of Kings or the Avenue of the Sphinxes in total comfort, sharing the wonders of the world with fellows travellers on your luxurious river cruise.
With Australia's number one tour operator, APT, you can cruise close to home or explore the far corners of the world. Why not spend Christmas cruising the waters of Europe and North America? A winter cruise holiday is a unique and magical holiday, and one that your family will remember for many years to come.
If you're after a more intimate holiday, if you want to make new friends and get to know the Captain and staff on your vessel, a river cruise is definitely the choice for you. With smaller boats and fewer passengers you'll find more attentive service, a great camaraderie among the guests and staff who'll feel more like friends by the end of your holiday.
Of course, the added benefit of a smaller ship is that when you arrive at port, you are immediately in the heart of your destination. Simply step off the boat and head out to a local taverna for dinner, hire a bicycle for a ride through Amsterdam or stroll around Europe's charming Christmas markets in winter.
