Vantage Cruise Line

The best choice for your first trip to Europe

Couple aboard ship

The secret is out among savvy travelers — a Vantage river cruise is a fabulous way to explore Europe. For the first-time traveler to Europe, it’s just about ideal. Unpack just once, and depending upon your itinerary, you can get your passport stamped in three, four, or more countries. You can customize your experience by balancing included shore excursions and Cultural Connections with exploring on your own, taking a complimentary onboard bike for a spin along the river, or just relaxing on the Sun Deck. And the value cannot be beat!


CONVENIENT

Reserve your airfare with Vantage and we’ll take care of everything, including meeting you at the airport and transferring you to your ship. And once you’re aboard, just unpack, settle in, and make the most of your trip.


RELAX… or NOT

Customize your experience by lazing on the Sun Deck, taking a spin on one of your ship’s complimentary bicycles, helmets, and cycling maps, or by reserving a low-priced optional tour. Tailor your experience to your lifestyle.


VALUE

With accommodations, meals, and sightseeing included in your price, a Vantage river cruise is a far better value than trying to arrange every detail independently.


LOCAL INSIGHTS

Vantage’s onboard Cruise Director and Concierge are your “insiders,” giving you personalized service and insight into your destination. They’ll help with everything from directions for independent sightseeing to recommendations for the best local shopping to reservations for restaurants, concerts, and more.


JUST THE RIGHT SIZE

With fewer than 200 travelers aboard, cruising on your Vantage river ship is a far different experience from being on a typical ocean-going vessel. You’ll have friendlier, more personalized service and enjoy an ever-changing panorama of scenery along the riverbanks (instead of endless open water).


A CRUISE FOR EVERYONE

River cruising is not just for retirees, although they are among the pioneers of this kind of travel. The ranks of younger couples, friends, alumni groups, and solo travelers are growing rapidly. Families are the newest audience. Check out the special family singular departure of Normandy & the D-Day Beaches river cruise.


NO-PRESSURE WAY TO MEET OTHER TRAVELERS

River cruising makes it easy to get to know your shipmates in a relaxed, no-pressure manner. Many Vantage travelers stay in touch — or even end up traveling together on subsequent Vantage journeys.


GREAT FOR SOLO TRAVELERS

Vantage has one of the highest numbers of cabins dedicated to solo travelers, so if you routinely travel solo or your regular travel companions can’t make it, then come aboard!
