Glide through stunning rural landscapes, traverse lush valleys and drift along winding city canals past ancient landmarks. APT takes you cruising in style - with more luxury river ships exploring even more of Europe's rivers.
- Seine River - Discover the Norman countryside in France, a veritable treasure trove of beautiful villages, pleasant landscapes, quaint towns, historic chateaux, grand cathedrals and imposing castles.
- Rhine River - one of Europe's most important waterways, the Rhine offers some of the most picturesque cruising imaginable. Especially where it runs through the Rhine Gorge, where hillsides are dotted with quaint towns, vineyards, ancient castles and ruins.
- Main River - a crucial part of the corridor that links the North and Black seas, the Main runs through the German states of Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg and Hesse.
- Main-Danube Canal - having taken 32 years to construct, the canal was completed in 1992. A feat of modern engineering, its stair-step locks allow ships to cross Europe's Continental Divide between the Main and Danube rivers. It runs from Bamberg via Nuremberg to Kelheim, connecting the North Sea and Atlantic Ocean to the Black Sea.
- Danube River - flowing through ten countries and four capital cities, the Danube, at nearly 3,000 kilometres, is Europe's second largest river, and is definitely one of its most majestic. Originating in Germany's Black Forest, the river leads to the Black Sea.
- Moselle River - a tributary of the Rhine, the Moselle originates in the Vosges Mountains and flows primarily though the lush wine-producing regions of France, Germany and Luxembourg.
- Rhône River - the Rhône originates in the beautiful region of the Swiss Alps, and runs through the Provence region of southern France before entering the Mediterranean Sea. The Rhône crosses the gastronomic centres of France, connecting the cities of Arles, Avignon and Lyon. This is a waterway steeped in history and surrounded by breathtaking beauty.
- Douro River - Teeming with colourful cityscapes, picture-perfect scenery and historic charm, this sun-drenched region of Spain and Portugal is a cultural gem.
