Cruise Europe in Style
Experience the same authentic boutique ambience of our land journeys on the only small-group river cruising experience available in Europe. The river ships chosen by A&K for these journeys are spacious yet intimate, stylish yet inviting, and steeped in the legendary hospitality of the Old World. A&K offers only the cabins and suites most preferred by our guests, including those with full, walk-out balconies or French balconies boasting wide glass panoramas.
Savor freshly prepared meals from a master chef at reserved tables on board your ship. Each elegant course appeals to a wide range of tastes, and every journey features a specially arranged Chef’s Highlights dining event with a private tasting menu. Going ashore, your small group dines at local restaurants — a sensational affair exclusive to Connections guests.
Enjoy every shore excursion in the company of your A&K Resident Tour Director® and no more than 24 like-minded guests, making for a far more personal, boutique-style experience. Elevating your journey, discover a wealth of modern amenities aboard every relaxing vessel, and centrally located properties that embody the unique traits of your destination in every city you stay.
About A&K River Cruise Ships
Relaxed Ambience and Modern Amenities
All of the vessels selected for Connections cruises feature a welcoming, casual atmosphere as well as the kind of amenities you expect from a fine hotel. You’ll find a hairdresser, fitness room and massage facilities on board, along with ship-wide Wi-Fi available free to Connections guests. There is also a sun deck for relaxation and traditional river ship diversions, such as shuffleboard or a giant chessboard.
Preferred Cabins and Suites with Balconies
For Connections boutique-style river cruise journeys, A&K offers only the cabins and suites most preferred by our guests, including those with full, walk-out balconies or French balconies, all of which offer unrestricted views through wide glass panoramas. These cabins are larger in size than those of many other river cruise vessels operating in Europe today.
Prepared fresh on board by a master chef and his team, meals feature delicacies that take inspiration from the places you visit. House wine, beer and soft drinks are included with both lunch and dinner, and generous breakfast and lunch buffets appeal to a wide range of tastes. And of course, you dine with your Connections group at tables reserved exclusively for you.
Service that Surpasses Expectations
While cruising the rivers of Europe, your needs are attended to by a hand-chosen crew that works on the river year in and year out, making them experts at anticipating requests before you even have to make them. Our crews boast years of experience in making guests feel welcome, and they help turn your river ship into an inviting home away from home.
