Vantage Deluxe World Travel Overview

Vantage Travel has offered curated, deluxe river and small ship cruises for travelers over 50 years old since 1983. It's one of the most single-traveler-friendly river lines out in the industry, and it maintains a 4:1 passenger-to-staff ratio on all of its riverboats.

Who goes on Vantage ships?

Vantage is marketed to well-traveled passengers ages 50 and up, as well as solo travelers (of the same age), mostly from the United States and Canada. Children over 8 are permitted onboard but not a common sight.

Do I have to dress up on a Vantage cruise?

Not really. There is a casual and relaxed dress code onboard, more so than on ships that cater to Europeans. Comfortable attire is more important than fancy clothes. The only rule for the main dining room in the evening is "no jeans or shorts." Passengers that prefer to wear denim when the sun goes down can opt for casual dining in the informal Captain's Club alternative dining room.

What are Vantage cruises most popular activities?

Vantage cruisers are interested in getting to know the destinations they visit in-depth. Onboard lectures, demonstrations, special meals, land-based home visits, performances and walking tours are among the most popular activities.

Is everything free on Vantage?

No, but a fair amount is. Fares for a Vantage cruise include most daily excursions, meals onboard, wine, beer and soft drinks with dinner, and Wi-Fi. Gratuities, bar drinks and a few select optional excursions will cost you extra.
