Tui River River Cruises

Cruise by month

Tui River Cruises
  • Overview

Debuting in 2020, TUI River Cruises bring tours of Europe’s best river cruise destinations exclusively for the UK market. Already popular as a wider holiday brand, TUI River Cruises provide the same quality and service as their hugely popular Marella ocean cruises.

As well as full board, as part of your TUI river holiday you can expect a fantastic number of perks not normally included with many river cruise lines, such as 1GB Wi-Fi per cabin per week, transport and transfers, tips and even £120 added excursion credit. In addition, guests can tailor their package to suit their needs such as by adding a premium drinks package or upgrading their cabin.

Sailing from Amsterdam all the way to Budapest along the Rhine, Danube, Main and Moselle rivers, TUI River Cruises’ three smart vessels, TUI Isla, TUI Maya and TUI Skyla, take in the highlights of Europe to bring you the best of both worlds when it comes to ticking off your bucket list and relaxing in pure style.

Coronavirus Health and Safety Protocols

Thanks to TUI River Cruises' updated health and safety measures, guests and crew will be well looked after throughout their time onboard.

Pre-Cruise Measures

Prior to embarkation, guests must complete a health questionnaire. They will also be required to have their temperature taken.

Onboard Experience

To ensure that social distancing can take place, entertainment venues and bars have been redesigned. Restaurants have also been adapted, with waiter service at breakfast, lunch and dinner. To further reduce contact, all payments will be cashless.

Cleaning measures have also been enhanced, and cabins will be regularly disinfected throughout the cruise. Hand sanitizer will also be on hand throughout each ship to encourage guests to wash their hands frequently.

As well as guest safety, all crew will be covid-19 trained, and where necessary will be provided with personal protective equipment.


TUI River Cruises have three beautifully modern river ships designed for traversing European rivers. Each ship perfectly balances that same quality, luxury and homely, friendly feel that makes Marella ocean cruises so popular- each ship hosts only up to 155 guests and boasts a passenger-to-staff ratio of 4:1, resulting in fantastic service.

TUI Skyla

Specialising in cruises along the Danube, TUI Skyla takes in fantastic destinations such as Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Belgrade. With two restaurants, one for casual dining and one for a more formal affair, as well as a wellness area and plenty of space for activities, you'll never want your river cruise to come to an end.

TUI Isla

As you make your way along Europe's waterways, including the Dutch and Belgian Waterways, Rhein or Main to name just a few, TUI Isla is made for having fun and relaxing. Drink in one of the two bars, or head to the top deck to take in the views as you lay back and let the world pass by, or get involved in some of the onboard entertainment.

TUI Maya

Sailing the same rivers as TUI Isla, onboard TUI Maya you can expect the same exceptional standard of onboard experience. With world-class service, fantastic dining options and free time spent doing exactly what you want, you'll love every moment spent on this river cruise ship.


TUI river ships are adult-only, allowing passengers to enjoy a relaxing and enriching river cruise holiday without worrying about the little ones. Onboard, guests can socialise with others who have mutual interests, have some ‘me time’ in the spa or simply watch the world go by in peaceful surroundings. Many people also choose a TUI river cruise to experience a certain activity or destination that piques their interest such as wine tasting, classical music, or seeing a myriad of fairytale castles. This means you’re sure to find plenty of people to chat and bond with, ideal for solo river cruisers looking to get out and see the delights of Europe’s best destinations in comfort and style.


There are plenty of options when it comes to dining while onboard TUI River Cruises. Guests not only get a new menu each day for dinner in the impressive Verdastro restaurant, but they can also enjoy a more relaxed meal for breakfast, lunch or dinner in the Bistro restaurant. In addition, when sailing along the scenic waterways of Europe in the summer, nothing can be better than tucking into your meal on the top deck as the beautiful vineyard valleys of the Rhine and sweeping forests of Central Europe drift by. To make the most of your excursion experiences, lunches are often held while on the move aboard the ship, allowing you to see two places of interest in a single day while the time in between becomes an event in itself.


With TUI, there are a great number of varied social events onboard including barbecues on the top deck, live music and comedy in the Club Lounge, and performances by locals passionate about sharing the highlights of their culture with you. For those looking for a bit of quiet time, simply sunbathe on the loungers or read in the shaded seating areas with a cocktail in hand, head to the Observatory, or soak in the hot tub and book an invigorating treatment in the onboard spa. What’s more, for those looking to start their day right, there’s even Pilates out on the sun deck.


All cabins onboard TUI River Cruises’ three stunning vessels have a great view of the river banks through a window or French balcony. The cabins have the feel of a floating boutique hotel with large beds, elegant furnishings and en suite bathrooms with toiletries and amenities provided. Plus, showcasing their commitment to sustainability, carpets are beautifully made from recycled fishing nets. For those looking to treat themselves and sail down the waterways of Europe in unrivalled luxury, the 36 suites are guaranteed to delight, but even if you're travelling alone you'll be able to cruise in the utmost style thanks to the 3 cabins for solo voyagers.


As well as one of the most modern river cruise fleets, TUI pride themselves equally when it comes to your experience ashore. In each destination excursions and enriching tours have been carefully selected to make each day an immersive and educational experience. Whether you visit a scenic vineyard, historic city or quaint village, the destination and its culture, history and cuisine will be the stars of the show. TUI even gives £120 per person per seven-day itinerary as credit to go towards excursion activities, with the option to add more or simply explore independently as you wish. Highlights of TUI’s 150 amazing excursions include wine tasting in the local vineyards of Rudesheim, taking in a classical concert in the atmospheric concert halls of Vienna, and exploring the castles of Germany - boasting more character than a Grimm’s fairy tale - with an expert guide.
