Step Aboard Stylish River Ships
The river cruise ships chosen by A&K for our Connections European River Cruise Journeys are spacious yet intimate, stylish yet inviting and complete with both modern amenities and legendary hospitality. Selected by the experts at A&K, each vessel is also the perfect complement to a complete itinerary that carries you into the heart of your destination via Europe’s greatest waterways. An A&K Resident Tour Director accompanies your journey from start to finish, serving on board as your group’s private concierge, and on shore, joining your local guide to lead enriching excursions exclusive to Connections guests. The result is an unforgettable adventure that reveals local people, culture and cuisine at their most authentic and intimate. It’s simply the finest small-group boutique river cruise experience in Europe.
Relaxing Atmosphere and Modern Amenities
Each vessel selected for Connections cruises features a welcoming, casual atmosphere and cutting-edge amenities. Enjoy massage facilities and a fitness room on board, a sun deck for relaxation and classic games such as chess, pickleball or shuffleboard to pass the time.
Preferred Cabins and Suites with Balconies
On every Connections boutique river cruise journey, A&K offers only the cabins and suites most preferred by our guests, including suites with full, walk-out balconies or cabins featuring drop-down windows, which offer unrestricted views through wide glass panoramas.
Exclusive Meals Aboard and Ashore
Prepared fresh on board by a master chef and his team, every course features locally inspired delicacies as well as included wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner. Always dine with your Connections group at tables reserved exclusively for you and experience culinary adventures ashore at carefully selected restaurants — an exclusive affair just for your small group.
Service that Goes the Extra Mile
While cruising Europe, your needs are attended to by a seasoned crew that works on the river year in and year out, making them experts at anticipating requests before you even have to make them. The crews serving on every Connections European River Cruise Journey boast years of experience, turning your river ship into an inviting home away from home.
