When you're not discovering fascinating ports of call, be sure to make the most of your time onboard an APT Touring river cruise ship. From delicious dining to relaxing activities, this impressive fleet has everything you need, and more!

Shore Excursions

APT guests will benefit from an impressive enrichment programme, which includes a fantastic choice of shore excursions such as guided tours and walks to suit all fitness levels. Tours include audio devices so that guests can learn about local history and culture with ease, and there are also bicycles onboard that can be used in ports, free of charge.

APT Luxury also boasts Signature Experiences, which are exclusive to APT guests and offer unique sightseeing opportunities, private tours of castles and Buddhist temples, private classical concerts in Vienna and decadent rail journeys aboard the Grand Empress Steam Train.


Gourmet cuisine comes as standard onboard an APT Touring cruise thanks to its AmaWaterways fleet which boasts membership of the International Gastronomic Society La Chaine de Rotisseurs. There’s a choice of dining venues on most ships, meaning you can enjoy traditional dining in the Main Restaurant or a more unique experience at the Chef's Table. Here you'll be able to sit down to a multi-course meal prepared right before your eyes courtesy of the expert chef.

As well as exceptional dining showcasing the flavours of each destination, guests will also be able to enjoy complimentary drinks, including freshly squeezed juices and sparkling wine at breakfast and unlimited beer, wine and soft drinks at lunch and dinner.


During your APT Touring cruise, onboard lectures and presentations are often included, to help guests to fully immerse themselves in the local heritage and culture. Passengers can enjoy specialist evening entertainment, which can vary from local musicians to impressive European dancers depending on the itinerary you choose. Alternatively, crew-led performances, quiz nights and dancefloors will keep guests entertained.

Guests will also have the use of at least one air-conditioned lounge with full bar service, perfect for a pre- or post- dinner drink with existing and new found friends.


When it comes to your time onboard, there are sun decks and terraces fleet-wide, where you can relax and admire the landscapes when the weather allows it. Alternatively, unwind in the spa (ship-dependent) and treat yourself to a specialist massage or treatment. There may also be a hair and beauty salon and fitness centre onboard, and pools are also found on newer ships, with some even boasting swim-up bars, too!
