Optional Excursions

  • Transriverline have arranged an ‘optional excursion’ programme which will be offered to you during the cruise. Optional excursions are operated subject to attracting minimum passenger numbers and at the discretion of Transriverline.  Payment for the excursions are made directly to Transriverline and all details will be available to you on arrival.  Transriverline hire in local coaches to operate the excursions as often our coaches are unable to follow the cruise.

Please Note:  This cruise is operated by Transriverline.  All sailing times are approximate and can be subject to change.  On certain cruises it may be necessary to sail throughout the night, details of which will be shown on your final itinerary where applicable.  Cruise ports of call are generally not situated in central locations of the cities or resorts that we are visiting.  We cannot guarantee that the resort / city centres are within suitable walking distance from where the ship docks.  River cruise routes could be subject to change due to local weather, traffic, flooding, high and low water levels, lock closures, road works and other unforeseen circumstances.  Transriverline and the ship’ captain reserve the right to modify the cruising itinerary to ensure the safe navigation of the vessel. 

 Even though some of the ships may have lifts, unfortunately we are unable to take wheelchairs or electric scooters on cruise holidays.  Due to the layout and access to the ships a certain level of physical mobility is advisable.
