The wide range of nicko cruises

River-cruising is a wonderful way to discover new countries, landscapes, cities and regions from a different perspective! You are presented every day with a kaleidescope of new experiences from the comfort of your nicko cruise ship.

Seventeen rivers on two continents – we can take you to almost anywhere in the world where river cruise ships operate. Whether it is the Baltic or the Adriatic, the Douro or the Yangtze, you can travel with us to all points of the ompass, wherever your imagination takes you and however often and for however long you want your cruise to last.  

From Passau or St. Petersburg, from Moscow or Saigon, we take you to the destinations of your choice. You can attend a concert by the Vienna Philharmonic, visit the fairytale castle of Empress Sisi or the film location of many famous Karl May stories. You can hear the melody of the Loreley maiden or savour the lights of Budapest. You can delight in the flowers of the Keukenhof Tulip Fields or sample the wines of the Carpathians. You can follow the winding River Moselle or experience the flora and fauna of the Danube Delta.

For over 20 years the name “nicko” has stood for excellent value for money. In order to preserve this in future years we have updated our fleet to meet the expectations of today’s clientele.

High quality standards on all our river cruise ships

Our 19 state-of-the-art ships operate in many parts of the world and their comfort levels easily match those of 4- or 5-star hotels ashore – and all this at an attractive price! In the season 2017 we can offer you this standard in Russia as well with our new vessel MS STRAVINSKI.

All our ships have comfortable outside cabins, many of which contain a large panoramic window, a French balcony or even a private balcony, where you can sit out in comfort. The cosy double beds match those found in top class hotels. All our ships have multi-lingual staff. On almost all routes Lunch and Dinner

Unforgettable Experiences

As well as the opportunity to watch the scenery pass by from the Sun Deck our cruises offer excellent excursions on land. Our pre-bookable Excursion Package allows you to join the major excursions at a discounted price. You also have the choice, either to join further

Optional excursions or to plan an individual programme. This enables the cruise to provide a range of holiday options – either a country holiday or a cultural experience or even a city holiday – all according to personal taste.

Enjoyment and Well-being

Of course our cruises offer excellent catering. For Lunch and Dinner there is a selection of four or five courses, elegantly served on most vessels at your table. On one or two evenings per cruise, we offer large theme buffets. Every cruise culminates in a Gala Dinner. Attention to healthy food and balanced portion sizes allows you to enjoy your meal without subsequent regret – however, the chef is only too pleased to provide a second helping, if asked.

A ship to suit all tastes.

In order to help you find your ideal ship we have divided our vessels into three types: nicko boutique is our smaller, exclusive vessels, furbished in a Grand Hotel style. nicko classic are cruise ships of different sizes with a classic, elegant interior decor, whilst nicko modern are our larger vessels with stylishly modern color schemes and designs. Independent of the style or type of vessel we have given every ship our own quality category – ranging from to . See full details of our fleet on pages 200 and following.
