Nicko Cruises BELISSIMA

ABOVE:  MS Bellissima cruises from Passau to Budapest.

Nicko Cruises  is a long-established German cruise operator. In 2009, when Peter Deilmann exited the river-cruising business, Nicko Cruises acquired many of its highly-regarded ships. Today, Nicko's river and coastal fleet has nearly two dozen "boutique," "modern," or "classic" vessels.

Nicko Tours logo on BELLISSIMAAlthough announcements, programs, etc. are available in both German and English, the official onboard language is German, so you won't get full value from your cruise unless you're comfortable with Deutsch. (Exception: Nicko will provide English-speaking guides for groups of 25 or more Anglophone passengers.)

Nicko also has a small selection of ocean cruises in Europe, using the modern 200-passenger World Voyager and other chartered ships.
