An example: a wedding party on board

Are you getting married and looking for an original way to celebrate? Then you are at the right place at Rivertours!We propose you a nice sailing program and tailor the reception and dinner, drinks, service and deck organization to your wishes.


Welcome of the guests on board of the ship Verdi, in Temse (or a departure point of your choice). Aperitif and snacks are served at the reception tables on the upper deck, and in good weather also partly on the outside deck.


Start of the evening Scheldt cruise with dinner.

We plan the most appropriate sailing route, depending on the tide of the Scheldt. But whether we sail upstream towards St-Amands and some nice new natural reserves or towards Antwerp and its beautiful skyline, a party on board a ship will always be a unique experience for you and your guests.

While sailing, a fine dinner is taken care of by one of our caterers. Appropriate drinks are provided by the ship's operator. Its professional staff provides service in the hall and at the bar.


Return to Temse and start of the evening party. The ship remains moored. On the dance floor, on the lower deck, the dancing can start. Those who want it a bit quieter can stay on the top and outside deck and enjoy the evening view of the Scheldt.

01:00 (or to be determined):

Disembarkation of the last guests and the end of the festivities on board. A party to never forget.
