Highest Rated Europe River Ships
APT was recently named in the 'Berlitz: River Cruising In Europe travel guide' as the only the European river cruise operator to receive a 4-Star Plus rating for its river ships - the highest level awarded. Setting apart from the competition, according to the guide’s author, is the ‘well appointed and very comfortable’ cabins, ‘warm interior décor’, ‘fine furnishings and plenty of space’ and ‘impressive tasty food and good wines’.
