River cruises and small ships
It is important to be aware that most river vessels and small ships do not have lifts and the stairs between decks can often be steep.
Some excursions involve a fair amount of walking, sometimes over uneven surfaces.
Please also note that on river cruises and small ships it's common for two or more ships to moor alongside each other at a berth, and on these occasions you'll need to walk through the other vessels when embarking or disembarking. We are not able to confirm in advance when this will be the case.
If you have a disability or reduced mobility and are considering a river cruise or a small ship cruise, please contact one of our advisors on 0800 300 400 to discuss the suitability before booking.
Excursions will vary in terms of how active they are. They can range from panoramic tours where the majority of sightseeing will take place from your vehicle, to strenuous activities covering uneven terrain and walking distances of over a mile.
We'll send you a detailed itinerary for your holiday at least eight weeks before departure with information regarding excursions. If you're in any doubt as to the suitability of the excursions, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss these with you.
If you require a wheelchair or scooter to take part in an excursion, this will need to be collapsible so it can be safely stored in the coach. You'll also need to be able to fold or dismantle your wheelchair or scooter yourself and lift it into the coach's luggage hold, or be accompanied by a travelling companion who can do this for you.
While we always try to use the most comfortable, well-equipped vehicles for our excursions, we are often limited by what's available in a particular destination. So regrettably, if you're unable to manage the steps on to a coach or other vehicle, you will not be able to join the excursion. This is due to the variety of vehicles used dependent on destination. In addition, as the vehicles used for excursions differ from place to place, there may be restrictions as to what mobility aids can be carried.
A big part of the cruising experience is what to wear and we know how important it is for many of our guests. During the day we advise casual wear, with the evening dress code starting from 6pm.
Ladies generally choose to wear a smart dress or an elegant blouse or top with trousers or skirt. Gentlemen can wear a smart open neck shirt and trousers. A jacket is optional, and we would ask that polo shirts, t-shirts, shorts and denim are kept for casual wear during the day.
You are welcome to dress up for the welcome drinks reception and Captain’s dinner.
Our river cruises are exclusively for over-50s. You can travel with a companion who is over 40 though.
The smoking area varies on our river cruise ships, so please ask one of our onboard team.
There’s no smoking anywhere else on board, including on cabin balconies.
All 62 double cabins are decorated in a modern style and have French balconies as well as a built-in wardrobe, hairdryer, safe, television and bathroom. There’s a lift serving the Lower Deck, Main Deck and Upper Deck.
The Bar can be found on the upper deck.
