European river cruises are the perfect way to discover fairytale castles, wine regions and breathtaking landscapes.


DREAMING of a European escape in 2019? What about cruising the waterways from Amsterdam to Budapest? Or discovering the wine regions in southern France or Europe's fairytale castles and landscapes?

This month you can take advantage of Evergreen Cruises & Tours Earlybird Offers on its 2019 European River Cruising with savings of up to $5300 per couple. But be warned, these offers end on August 31.

You will cruise aboard Evergreen’s Star-Ships, Emerald Sky, Star, Sun, Dawn and Destiny. These vessels are at the forefront of ship design with a choice of spacious Owner's one-bedroom suites, full balcony suites and suites with innovative drop-down windows. On board, you can relax in the pool or sit back and enjoy unimpeded views of Europe’s rivers and countryside.

Evergreen cruise inclusions will bring to life the Europe you’ve dreamed of. You will never forget the moment you first lay eyes on Cologne Cathedral or the castles of the Rhine. Nor will you quickly forget the tastes of Burgundy and Provence prepared by Evergreen’s celebrity chef, or the delights of the Douro’s cellars. Each experience is an included highlight.

The classic 15-day Splendours of Europe cruise between Amsterdam and Budapest is priced from $6845 per person including flights. 

Portugal’s Douro, too, is becoming a favourite, offering a slower pace of life. Dramatic gorges, vineyards, history, culture and cuisine and even canoeing form part of the eight-day Secrets of the Douro River cruise. It starts at $4545 per person with Earlybird savings of up to $1500 per couple.

If watching the Tour de France has inspired you to explore this magnificent country, you can discover its charms with Evergreen’s eight-day Sensations of Lyon & Provence cruise. You can even take a guided bike tour along the banks of the Rhone, albeit at a gentler pace.  Cruises start at $3475 per person with Earlybird savings of $2000 per couple.

Even better, these two cruises can be seamlessly combined into a 15-day Three Rivers Discovery cruise to make the most of your time in Europe.

You can even save up to an extra $800 per couple when you book and pay in full early.
