E Waterways offer unparalleled intimacy and exciting experiences from its fleet of small ships. With a range of destinations around the world – many not offered by any other company – you'll find every single itinerary has been carefully planned to really make the most of the part of the world you're in.
With E Waterways, you can travel throughout Europe – perhaps down the Caledonian Canal and lochs of Scotland, along the Douro, Rhine, Danube or Dutch waterways – go further afield to explore the archaeological wonders set along the Nile, spot wildlife down the Amazon or soak up the sights of Southeast Asia from the Mekong. The small ships in each destination are often designed and built locally and take in characteristic of your location. Be wowed by travelling on traditional rice junkets in Thailand, nuclear powered ice breakers in the Antarctic or luxury hotel barges in France.
On the Nile for example, you’ll sail along in a traditional-on-the-outside, luxury-on-the-inside Dahabiya. These ships were used by the Egyptian monarchy in the early twentieth century. Nothing comes as standard with E Waterways.
E Waterways are justifiably proud of their extensive shore excursion programme. As well as the inclusive tours, every cruise offers lots of extra options. Popular choices include taking a walking tour of The Vatican, an adrenaline-pumping helicopter ride across the Grand Canyon and a sedate, colonial tram restaurant tour of Melbourne.
Their one-stop-shop service and accommodating, helpful staff help you to purchase just the cruise on its own, or to combine your cruise with air transportation, ground transfers, hotel stays, and additional sightseeing options directly through E Waterways. With complete packages at very competitive rates, you can tailor make your holiday to your own requirements and budget.
