See European rivers (from the North Sea to the Black Sea); the dramatic fjords of Scandinavia; the effortlessly scenic Mediterranean; relax on inland canal vacations; explore on expedition cruises around the Galapagos Islands, the Amazon and even the polar regions, or simply experience the delights of paradise aboard a luxury cruise to French Polynesia, the Maldives or the Caribbean. We have the perfect small ship cruise to suit your holiday needs.

We also offer complete packages at competitive rates, so that your holiday is tailor made to your exact requirements and your budget.

eWaterways gives access to the largest range of unusual and otherwise hard-to-find cruises, many of which have not been available all on website in the UK and North America before.

Just a Drop

Launched in 1998, Just a Drop is a registered charity that raises money to build wells, install boreholes and hand pumps, and carry out sanitation and health education programmes in some of the poorest parts of the developing world.

Their mission is to reduce child mortality by delivering accessible clean, safe water where it is needed most.To date they have helped over 1 million children and their families in 29 countries.

Rather than taking a global perspective on the issue, they look at the local picture to establish how they can achieve maximum impact at ground level. This means working directly with other charities, local partners and communities.

eWaterways is committed to supporting Just A Drop. Our CEO is an Ambassador helping to promote the charity.
