We have a limited number of cabins available from $0 per person/day, twin share. Don't miss out - reserve your cabin today!

River Duchess Overview

In March and April every year River Duchess offers 9-night Tulips and Windmills cruises between Antwerp (Belgium) and Amsterdam (Netherlands). From April to October River Duchess sails the width of Europe over 25 nights, from Amsterdam to Bucharest. What more could one ask, for crossing ten countries in Europe! This journey is divided into two sectors. A 15-night itinerary sails between Amsterdam and Budapest, and a 9-night journey from Budapest to Bucharest. (Check if the cruise can be extended by air to Istanbul.)


All cabins are outside, comfortable, and maintained by twice-a-day service. All have premium bedding, pillow options, controllable AC, direct-dial telephone, flat-screen TV with infotainment, storage, built-in safe, vanity, hair dryer, bathrobes, and compact marble bathroom fitted out with L’Occitane products. Lower deck cabins have a wide head-height window, and middle deck staterooms have a large panoramic window. An elevator services all three interior decks.

Food and Dining

The Palace Restaurant is lined with floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides and provides open seating. Dining is acclaimed as “best-of-the-best” by observers of the river cruise industry. Breakfasts and lunches are full buffet with an extensive array of hot and cold items, and individually prepared items are available. Menu items change daily, follow the region and season, and include Continental and American preparations. Local and regional specialities are featured. Dinner is open-seating with four courses. Accompanying dinner are fine wines and a selection of beers and soft drinks.


The cruise focus is on exploration and walking tours with local guides. Tour variations continue to expand to meet the requests of guests: you have a choice of five ways to explore, according to your wishes. Travel lectures expand your knowledge of the regions visited, and the Epicurean Adventurer Program enhances your appreciation of local cuisine ashore. Visiting entertainers come on board along the route. A Family-Friendly program is offered during school holiday times.
