Nicko Cruises Preferred Cruiseline

Available Cruise Lines

nicko cruises is one of the leading suppliers for river cruises in Europe and disposes over a modern as well as comfortable fleet. The company is active on two continents and travels through all tourist waterways in demand in the world as well as several coastal sections.

"More experiences. Enjoyed in comfort." - that is the programme at nicko cruises. It does not matter in which part of the world: The comfort and individual travelling experience of the passengers are always in the foreground. Thanks to the many travelling routes that we offer, every person will find their matching river cruise. The ships of the nicko cruises fleet all have the equivalent standard (except Russia) of 4 to 5 star hotels on-land according to German standards.

And matching that, nicko cruises offers an exceptional service with a lot of passion for detail: from picking you up at the doorstep to attractive excursions on-land up to a wide variety of culinary offers on-board.

The language on board all nicko cruises ships is German and English. Since nicko cruises is increasingly opening up to the international market, it may be that foreign-language tour groups will be on board for individual departures. In such cases, announcements over loudspeaker or during evening events are made in German as well as the respective foreign language of the tour group.


A fine selection of meals is an essential part of life on board of all nicko river cruises. The day starts with a substantial buffet-style breakfast whilst lunch and dinner consist of a wide selection of courses. Dinner is served at your table, allowing us to really pamper you. On one or two occasions per week, we vary the seated dinner with large theme buffets. We place great value on a healthy mix of international dishes an specialities local to the area we are passing through.

In the Panorama Restaurants on board all meals are served at one sitting. You can reserve your seat in the Restaurant as soon as you embark and that seat remains yours for the duration of your cruise. We recommend smart casual dresses, particulary at dinner. For the Gala Dinner we do appreciate a greater degree of formality.


It is common practice around the world for a satisfied guest to reward the services of staff accordingly. The amount of the tip is, of course, at the guest’s discretion and should be in recognition of good service. We recommend 7–10 € per guest and per overnight stay for the ship’s crew. The cruise director, local tour guides and bus drivers are not included in this. You can, however, also thank them by giving them a tip. For cruises on MS MEKONG NAVIGATOR, tips for the ship personnel are already included in the price.
