River Cruises

There is something endearingly tranquil about a river cruise. Civilization have developed along rivers through history, so there’s no better route along which to explore cities, and communities, temples and fortifications, local traditions and natural beauty spots. A strong sense of history emerges along these waterways that have been major routes of communication for hundreds and sometimes thousands of years.
As with all our small ship cruises,, on our River Cruises it is easy to form special bonds with new people while you are sharing memorable discoveries, and indeed, many of our travellers have made lifelong friendships on our trips.
The Nile cruise vessels featured are state-of-the-art, with spacious lounge bar and café, single sitting dining extensive sun deck with swimming pool and cabins with French balconies that allow you to enjoy the fresh air without compromising on cabin space. Our fleet is also eco-friendly, with quieter, more efficient engines, energy efficient hull design, water and energy saving features, and more.
Our purpose built canal boats combine traditional style with modern comforts, and with just 11 guest cabins you will enjoy the warm and friendly atmosphere that only small group cruising can provide.

How big is a small cruise ship?

Panorama IIHere at Seafarer we specialise in small ship cruises. Our smallest ship carries just 34 passengers – and the largest only 140. Most carry on average around 40 passengers and get into places large ships cannot. They combine the comfort and service you would expect of cruise ship, with the ambience and friendliness of a private yacht, hence we prefere to call them Mega Yachts. We take you to some of the world’s most idylic destinations, whith sustainability as a core value.
