From the intricate elegance of the interior appointments and the opulence of the suites to the wealth of recreational choice provided in the vessel's public areas, these river ships are truly the finest on Europe's waters.

* Freedom of Choice Touring and exclusive Signature Experiences
* Beer, wine and soft drinks included at both Lunch and Dinner, with Champagne served at Breakfast

There are two classes of APT river ships:

Aria Class ships boast an innovative leading-edge design. Launched between 2006 and 2009, they have been the most popular ships in Europe for some time.

Concerto Class river ships - These revolutionary vessels present the popular attributes of Aria Class ships while introducing some new features certain to appeal to many. Slightly larger, these ships are set to change the way the industry looks at river ship design, thanks in part to their exclusive range of Twin Balcony Suites.
