Vantage Cruise Line: Our Fleet

Vantage invites you to cruise Europe’s greatest rivers aboard our own deluxe fleet of award-winning 5-star vessels. Specifically designed for the discerning American traveler, our ships — the m/s River Venture and m/s River Splendor, — are owned and operated by Vantage, exclusively for the use of our travelers.

Beginning in 2021, you can circumnavigate the globe on Vantage’s first small ship ocean-going luxury expedition vessel, the Ocean Explorer. In its inaugural year, the 5-star Ocean Explorer will operate a menu of exciting expeditions exploring Asia, Europe, the Americas, and Antarctica. With our convenient back-to-back options, you can put two or three cruises together for the ultimate adventure!

What’s more, Vantage now offers the best value for everyone — from solo travelers to those traveling with friends and family. Here’s how:
  • We’re the only European river cruise company with dedicated solo cabins on board our deluxe fleet, which means you don’t have to pay a Single Supplement and still get a space all your own. Enjoy the same great features as double-occupancy reservations — at a great value! But hurry, space is first-come, first-served! New for 2021 — We’ve reoutfitted our river ships to accommodate MORE solo travelers as well as groups and multi-generational travelers with new adjoining cabin options!
  • We’ve made it more affordable than ever to travel with family and friends with triple accommodations on many of our ships — save thousands by adding a third guest to your Owner’s or Deluxe Suite!

Experience the Ease of Shipboard Life

Simply settle in aboard your intimate “floating hotel” and watch history slip past in an ever-changing panorama of craggy coastlines, castles and cathedrals, cities and villages, vineyards and gorges. You’ll unpack just once and arrive at each destination refreshed and ready to explore.

With no more than 176 guests aboard, disembarking is a breeze — and once on shore, you’ll often find yourself right in the center of town, just a stroll away from major sites. One of the best advantages of river cruising is that “getting there” is actually fun!

What’s more, our extensive collection of deluxe 4- and 5-star river and ocean-going small ships bring the culture of our destinations on board with a roster of local musicians and singers, folk dancers, lecturers, craftsmen, and artists.

Plan Something Special with Vantage Concierge

Birthdays, anniversaries, retirement parties, college reunions on board for family and friends, gatherings in your hotel when you’re on a land or a small ship cruisetour . . . No matter how large or small the event, your Vantage Concierge can pull it off with pizzazz. Whether it’s a cake, planning an onboard ceremony, or gathering your troop on a special heritage tour organized just for you, every memory is special thanks to the help of your Concierge.

Cruise the World Aboard Our Deluxe and Charter Fleets

Whether docking at smaller cities and towns to visiting hidden harbors, smaller vessels go where big ocean cruise ships can’t. From France and the Netherlands, Greece or Croatia, the Galapagos or Antarctica, we’ve carefully selected the best vessels in their class to provide you with an intimate, fun, and relaxing shipboard experience.

Join us in one of the regions of the world listed on the right menu, and you’ll soon see why so many travelers are celebrating this rewarding style of travel.
