Enjoy Authentic Insider Access on a European River Cruise Journey

The Unrivaled Advantages of Small-Group Cruising with A&K
A Small Group of 24 or Less
While your river ship carries a complement of around 150 passengers, you enjoy every shore excursion and meal in a group of no more than 24 Connections guests — which makes for a far more personal, boutique-style experience.
Private Dining on Board and on Shore
When dining on board ship, your Connections group sits at specially reserved tables, joined by your Resident Tour Director®. Going ashore, your small group has opportunities to dine together at local restaurants, with local wine and beer included at lunch and dinner.
Always Exclusive Excursions
Every trip ashore on your European River Cruise Journey is an invitation-only affair — just you, your fellow Connections guests and your Resident Tour Director and local guide. Set out on visits to local neighborhoods and experience local people and culture firsthand.
Dedicated A&K Onshore Vehicles
On every shore excursion, a comfortable A&K vehicle designated exclusively for your group is waiting by the dock, so you never have to wait or search for a bus. Your travel as a group, not as a crowd, exploring together as like-minded travellers.
A Complete Itinerary on Both River and Land
Each journey in this book is a complete itinerary that reveals the heart of your destination on land as well as on the water. Explore vital cultural hubs such as Prague, Amsterdam, Munich, Budapest and Paris before or after your cruise, with sightseeing and meals included.
Elegance on Shore: Boutique Hotels
Your time on shore before and after your cruise is every bit as important as the cruise itself, so A&K makes sure every property is centrally located, with easy access to must-see sites. We also choose smaller boutique properties that embody the unique traits of your destination.
