Golf Cruises – River

Scheduled Hosted River Golf Cruises in Chronological Order

River Cruising offers an intimate and leisurely holiday experience. A River cruise is a voyage along inland waterways, often stopping at multiple ports along the way. River Cruising is the fastest growing part of the cruising industry and has become popular especially in Europe. You can enjoy the convenience and luxury of a deep-ocean cruise but with the ability to dock right in town, smaller ships, fewer passengers, less “sea days” and river cruising often gives you more time at the destination.

We have run or have upcoming golf cruises scheduled on Mississippi River (4), Seine River (3), Rhone River (3), Douro (1), St Lawrence, Great Lakes and Nile (1).
