We're Passionate about River Cruising
Here at Miles Morgan Travel, we're passionate about river cruising. We can tell you everything you need to know from what's special about river cruising, through to which river, ship and cabin would suit you...
Why River Cruise?
You might not know much about river cruising, or yet understand it's appeal. We're finding that many of our seasoned ocean cruise customers are now discovering river cruising for so many reasons:
- There are so many new stunning destinations to discover
- Smaller ships are more intimate and you can moor right in the heart of cities and explore from the ship on foot
- You enjoy ever-changing spectacular scenery
- There are no 'at sea' days so you can explore on every single day of your holiday
Douro, Danube, Rhine, Rhone, Nile, Irrawaddy, Mekong - some of the world's most iconic rivers. But which one is right for you? Our River Cruise Specialists can advise you on what's special about each of these rivers and many more.

Amy Corran, Abergavenny
"On a Saga river cruise, you’ll have time to soak up the atmosphere, explore the sights and take in the beauty of the places that you visit. They know cities like Vienna, Prague and Budapest shouldn’t be rushed, that’s why, on some cruises, they include stays at hotels that have been carefully chosen for their great locations close to the sights. Saga offers an excellent choice of ships, from intimate vessels carrying 50 passengers to larger ones that carry up to 200. Let us here at Miles Morgan Travel recommend the right one for you."
David Croft, Bath
"I was lucky enough to sample a Uniworld river cruise ship on a recent visit to Amsterdam and I could see straight away why they are multi award winning. I have seen many river cruise ships but the Uniworld ships are truly unique. Their boutique river cruises in Europe are all-inclusive, but it was their attention to small detail that really blew me away! Their ships have a stylish air inspired by the rivers upon which they cruise, a blend of old-world elegance, the latest technological innovations, and ultra-luxurious amenities. I have lots of photos and would love to share my experience with anyone wanting to know more about this fabulous product."
Judy Scott, Cheltenham
"As many of you know, I am a very keen cruiser and am delighted to showcase AmaWaterways, which is family owned and has been operating luxury river cruises since 2002. They have the top 10 rated ships in Europe as rated by Berlitz. Why not enjoy a visit to their 28-seater Chef's Table specialist restaurant on board with its delicious taster menu with no cover charge? “Ama” is derived from the Latin word for “love.” It is a concept that permeates every aspect of their river cruises, from the design of their ships to the high levels of service they deliver to our guests."
Simon De Burgh, Chepstow
"An Emerald Waterways river cruise introduces the highlights of ocean cruising to the intimacy of Europe's waterways. Comfort and innovation combine on board their state-of-the-art Star-Ships, boasting an exciting variety of luxurious on-board amenities and inclusions. Their award-winning promise of Exceptional Emerald Value ensures your peace-of-mind, with everything you could need included in the price of your trip. From return flights, all transfers and on-board tips, to every thoughtful, chef-prepared meal and complimentary drinks served with lunch and dinner."
Kate Taylor, Cirencester
"You only have to see the huge range of awards that Viking River Cruises have won to see why they are called the most honoured cruise line. Most recently voted Best River Cruise Line for 2017 at the Silver Travel Awards. There are many river cruise companies sailing many of the same rivers, but there really is only one Viking Cruises. Discover more about their unrivalled fleet of over 65 innovative river ships, stylish accommodation, inspiring choice of itineraries across Europe, Russia and Asia, and included guided excursions. I was lucky enough to sample a Viking cruise and can thoroughly recommend it."
Lisa Burnham, Clifton
"On an APT river cruise it's all about getting under the skin of the country that you are visiting whilst staying on board a luxurious river ship. This family-owned company celebrates its 90th anniversary this year. Its host of awards confirm its reputation for consistently delivering exceptional standards to its guests. Its impressive fleet of ships offer unprecedented luxury so you can spend the day discovering the world's greatest wonders, then return to your tranquillity of your home away from home. Everything is included on our APT Luxury river cruise, from private home-to-airport transfers to sightseeing and tipping."
Emma O'Donovan, Gloucester

Joanne Greenway, Malmesbury
"River cruising has become so popular in the last few years, as I see my customers who have cruised the ocean or been on a coach holiday move over to river. This is due to a more relaxed atmosphere and the small, intimate ships. Even though the ships are small, there is still so much to do on-board from guest speakers to musical entertainment, and often a library. Some of places you can visit while on a river cruise are places you may not of thought of travelling to before but provide so much culture and history."
Clare Hughes, Monmouth
"I feel extremely privileged to have recently enjoyed a river cruise with Tauck on the Danube and can honestly say that I was totally blown away! I have sampled many all-inclusive holidays but this one was ultra all-inclusive, from the best Champagne to even giving each customer 5 euros in Ragensburg to sample the local bratwurst as the town claims to offer the oldest version of bratwurst in the land. I would highly recommend a Tauck river cruise and would love to share my experience with anyone who may be considering travelling with Tauck."
Alison Saunders, Nailsworth
"With so many things to see and do on board a river cruise, it's no wonder there's been a rapid increase in the amount of people wanting to try it for themselves. River cruising is relaxing yet you'll never be bored as there's plenty to keep you occupied both on and off-shore. One thing which stands out for me whilst river cruising is the sheer amount of quality excursions available. Whether it's wine tasting, hiking or culinary classes there are so many new memories to be made during your trip and better still, more often than not, it's all included in the price."
Nigel Coldicott, Portishead
"Avalon's spacious, 5* elegant ships offer a comfortable base from which to explore each new horizon, with more than 30 per cent more space on-board than other cruise lines. With excursions, use of on-board facilities and gratuities all included, Avalon cruises represent great value for money. Their cruise directors and tour guides are hand-picked for their local knowledge, bringing you closer to each destination both on board and ashore. And with an included VIP private home pick-up service within 100 miles of your home, when you book an Avalon cruise, your holiday begins the moment you close your front door."
Nina Robertshaw, Ross on Wye
"Having a real passion for cruising, I have focussed largely in recent years on expanding my ocean cruise knowledge, that was however, until I discovered river cruising. While my love for ocean cruising hasn't disappeared, for me, river cruising is a another exciting way to explore new destinations. Just like ocean cruising, you can join in as little or as much as you like, and with a different place to explore every day you'll never tire of the amazing things to do on and off-shore. Most excursions and activities on a river cruise are included in the price so there's really nothing to worry about once you step on board."
Katharine Harrison, Taunton
"We have been working with Riviera Travel for many years and I personally have been lucky enough to experience one of their amazing river cruises. Their holidays offer outstanding value for money; you miss nothing of importance and their fully comprehensive itineraries include the ‘must see’ sights and experiences. Because of this, their river cruises always book very well in advance so early booking is strongly recommended."
Sarah Phillips, Wells
"As a main agent for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, we introduce you to their new river cruises aboard Brabant for 2018. If you are a keen Fred. Olsen cruiser, we know you will love this smaller-scaled ship, with just 4 decks and fewer than 80 rooms and suites. You can be sure of an intimate friendly ambience and home-from-home atmosphere that Fred. Olsen are famous for creating. Sail the breathtaking Danube; savour the highlights of the heart of Europe on a journey through the spellbinding Moselle, Rhine and Main valleys; enjoy a taster cruise to Amsterdam when the tulips are in full flourish; and much more."
Heather Muir, Yeovil
"Our customers love the comfort and convenience of Titan’s VIP door to door travel service to really start their holiday in style. As a main Titan agent, we are delighted that they have secured the first class MS Serenade 1 for the second year running in 2018 for their river cruise. With their holidays only on sale in the UK and Ireland, the programme, excursions, communications and on board experience can all be tailored to British travellers. Accommodating just 136 passengers, the Serenade 1 is large enough to offer a little peace and solitude when required but small enough to ensure exceptional personalised service."
