Positivity-Mission

POSITIVITY

We are dedicated to making a positive impact on the world through our commitments to celebrating diversity, giving back to local communities and reducing our impact on the environment. Whether it’s learning about new cultures, supporting local economies or striving to eliminate single-use plastics on board and ashore, we believe that, together, we can make the world a more positive place – one river at a time.

Giving back: supporting our global community

PERSONAL INTERACTION

Personal connection has been a fundamental value of our company since the very beginning and is the primary reason guests return to river cruise with us year after year. Our staff and crew are very passionate about getting to know both our guests and travel partners and strive to give you the very best personalized experience from the moment you book to the moment you disembark – and even after you’ve returned home.
