CRUISE & RAIL No-fly options on selected European River Cruises

As an alternative to flying to your chosen destination, you can now travel by rail to join your European River Cruise. Watching the beautiful landscapes of Europe pass by as you travel at first through the English countryside, and then into Europe, offers a uniquely scenic way to start your journey. You can travel from London St. Pancras by Eurostar’s high speed-service to the continent, where, on arrival at your final overseas train station, you will be met by a private transfer which will whisk you to your ship. When your cruise finishes, a private transfer will meet you on disembarkation and take you to the train station for your return journey.

When you travel by rail you will need to ensure you can manage your luggage throughout the entire journey from home to your final overseas train station. You will also need to be comfortable changing platforms and even train stations on several of our departures.
