Leading luxury river cruise operator APT has announced the forthcoming launch of two new vessels, the APT Solara and APT Ostara, for the 2025 season.

Designed in Australia by architects Hecker Guthrie, the sister ships will be masterpieces of modernity, drawing inspiration from Europe’s waterways and the unpretentious ease of Australian-style luxury.

Guests can look forward to cutting edge technology and the structural optimisation of space and light artfully balance the elegant design and meticulous attention to detail.

These ultra-luxury floating hotels will redefine the brand, cementing APT’s elevation into the ‘ultra-luxury’ category.

Solara and Ostara will be deployed on APT’s most popular European itineraries from Spring 2025, transporting guests along the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers in comfort and style.

The new luxury river ships will set a new standard in sustainability, ensuring greater emphasis on saving fuel, energy optimisation, and waste reduction.

With only 154 guests on board serviced by 60 dedicated crew, guests can also be assured of outstanding service and care.
