Experience the Most Leisurely Way to See Europe!
No other experience compares to a European River Cruise with Vantage Deluxe World Travel, a truly unique and convenient way to travel. Join us and you'll cruise Europe's waterways aboard our custom-designed deluxe river ships or our exclusively chartered river cruisers – on one comprehensive journey.
Unpack once. Then decide how you’d like to spend each day. Your itinerary is chock full of included sightseeing and our exclusive Cultural Connections such as home-hosted dinners, cooking demonstrations, and lectures. You can even choose your tours in some European locations, and our "Active" or "Relaxed" walking tours let you pick the tempo that suits you.
Welcome Aboard the Newest, State-of-the-Art Fleet
When we made the decision to build our own private fleet of river ships, we set the highest standards of quality. Now, we’re once again breaking new ground as we launch the ms River Discovery II (March 2012), and the ms River Venture and the ms River Splendor (Spring 2013). Plus, our ms River Navigator, our most popular vessel, will be completely refurbished for our 2013 season in France.
Each of these vessels is state-of-the-art, with free Wi-Fi throughout, a rear-facing Captain’s lounge with retractable roof, French balconies that let you enjoy the fresh air without sacrificing cabin space, and other luxurious touches. Our fleet is also eco-friendly, with quieter, more efficient engines, more efficient hull design, the latest water and energy saving features, and more.
Explore Unique Destinations on Chartered River Cruises
Thanks to our partnership with well-known cruise operators, you can discover more of Europe’s waterways on leading vessels that we’ve privately chartered just for us. Our chartered ships may not always provide the deluxe amenities of our privately owned ships, but they offer a charm of their own … and an authentic window into local culture and destinations. And of course, Vantage monitors all our Worldwide River Voyages every step of the way.
Enjoy the Best Value on All Our River Cruises
A Complete Travel Package For one very reasonable price, just about everything is included – accommodations, international flights, the most included sightseeing (tours in every port), most meals (all meals aboard ship), our exclusive Cultural Connections, transfers, baggage handling, and more.
Enriched Sightseeing with Our State-of-the-Art Headset Program! Every included tour features a state-of-the-art audio headset, so you'll easily hear the many interesting facts, customs, and legends recounted by your English-speaking guides, even if you linger behind.
Share the Excitement with Like-Minded Travelers The intimate size of our ships and fun onboard social events make it easy to strike up conversations and get acquainted with fellow passengers. You'll enjoy an unmatched camaraderie.
Vantage Program Managers - Your Hosts on Ship and Shore Our travelers often tell us that it's the Program Managers who make their Vantage river cruise so extraordinary. Natives or residents of the places you visit, they serve as your hosts and your sources for "inside" information.
