About Vantage River Navigator

The 360-foot European river vessel first entered service in 2002. 

The open seating Compass Rose Dining Room serves international fare and regional cuisine adapted for the American palate, along with health-conscious options and vegetarian dishes.

Facilities on the ship include an elevator between the passenger decks, plus a hydraulic chair lift to access the sun deck. There is fitness room plus an outdoor walking track, small shop selling essential and souvenirs and Wi-Fi available throughout the ship.

Sightseeing tours are included in the cruise fare. Program directors with local expertise accompany each River Navigator cruise. The Cultural Connections program promises in-depth experiences in each country visited through lectures, special meals, home visits, receptions, performances and participation in local activities. Passengers are given free headphones for each excursion to ensure they can hear the guide clearly.

 Eco-friendly features include energy efficient engines, water saving technology and "smart cabin" lighting that switches on and off with the room key.

 River Navigator is part of Vantage's mainland European fleet and sails on a variety of itineraries including spring tulip cruises in Holland, dedicated solo sailings and the 23-night "Grand European Sojourn" itinerary through seven countries which is new for 2020.
