Set Sail with Travel Department’s River Cruise Holidays – Cruise down the Nile or sail through Europe


Set sail and take to the river, when we can travel again, and enjoy the many features of River Cruising whether it’s in Europe or further afield.

Travel Department has a range of fantastic River Cruises for late 2021 and 2002


Experience the Rhine and Cologne River Cruise where for 7 nights you will sail through Switzerland, France, Germany and The Netherlands.

Before embarking on your Rhine River Cruise adventure, your holiday will begin with a guided walking tour of Basel and then you’ll set sail on the 4 star MS Amadeus ship.

Much smaller than an ocean liner, the ship will take you into the heart of most cities you’ll visit, giving more time to explore the attractions and enjoy time ashore. You’ll enjoy guided tours and free time for sightseeing in Heidelberg, Koblenz and Cologne and there are also optional excursions to avail of, such as wine tasting in Cochem and a walking tour of Strasbourg. You’ll say goodbye to your ship in Amsterdam, the final stop, but before departing you’ll explore the city on a guided tour, which includes a canal cruise.

Enjoy free time at leisure to relax on-board or discover each destination at your own pace.
