What we say: With its all-inclusive cruises and bespoke shore excursions, it’s no wonder APT has taken out the award for Best Luxury River Cruise Line. The line also usually offers free flights with their cruises, and has itineraries on European waterways, the Yangtze River in China and the mighty Mekong River. APT also has cruises with celebrity chef Luke Nguyen, who will take you into the markets in Vietnam and host cooking classes onboard.
What you say: “We’ve travelled with APT several times on a number of itineraries and we’ve always found their cruises extremely well thought out.
We felt incredibly pampered.” Kylie Everton

To have this recognised by Cruise Passenger readers is extremely rewarding for the whole APT team. Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote.” Deb Fox ATG, Chief Commercial Officer
HIGHLY COMMENDED: CRYSTAL RIVER CRUISES
A relative newcomer to the river cruise scene, Crystal River Cruises’ beautifully plush ships and special shore excursions (you can go speed boating down the Danube like James Bond) earn it a notable mention in our awards. There are five ships in the fleet sailing on the Rhine, Main and Danube Rivers, on which each suite is appointed a butler and everything is included.
