Simply settle in aboard your intimate “floating hotel” and watch history slip past in an ever-changing dance of castles and cathedrals, cities and villages, vineyards and gorges. You’ll unpack just once, and arrive at each destination refreshed and ready to explore.
With no more than 176 guests aboard, disembarking is a breeze – and once onshore, you’ll often find yourself right in the center of town, just a stroll away from major sites. One of the best advantages of river cruising is that “getting there” is actually fun!
Vantage is proud to present its most extensive collection ever of river and small ship cruises, featuring our very own deluxe 4- and 5-star river ships and other ships owned by some of the world’s most respected ship operators. You won’t find casinos or glitzy reviews onboard, but you will get a rich sense of the culture of your destinations as we invite onto our ships local musicians and singers, folk dancers, lecturers, craftsmen, and artists.
Cruise the World Aboard Our Deluxe and Charter Fleets
Because smaller vessels go where big ocean cruise ships cannot, they offer an intimate, up-close itinerary, docking at smaller cities and towns, visiting hidden harbors, wending among islands, and bringing you closer to nature. From France to the Netherlands … India to Burma ... the Galapagos and Patagonia to Antarctica, we've carefully selected the best vessels in their class to provide you with a fun, relaxing shipboard experience.
A deluxe cruise on a Vantage-owned European river ship … white-glove service through Indochina aboard a colonial steamer … a breathtaking Mediterranean cruise on an intimate yacht ... an idyll along India's lower Ganges in a finely appointed river boat. You can even sail to the farthest reaches of the world, Antarctica!
Join us in one of the regions of the world listed on the right menu, and you’ll soon see why so many travelers are celebrating this rewarding style of travel.
