Please note that river cruise rooms are small. We are happy to explain to you why, as it is a function of the size of the locks on the rivers.

Also, if you are interested in a Suite or a Grand Suite, we can try to secure this accommodation at a later date since a lot of movement does happen regarding cancellations and changes to other guests’ plans.  There will probably be cancellations along the way, and we will try to get those secured for you if it is of interest.
