WHY THEY COST: The UK’s largest river cruise line has launched three new itineraries taking guests on eight-day trips to iconic European destinations along the Rhine, Danube and Siena rivers. Departure dates are now on sale. – Lori Baratti, editorial assistant.
Riviera River Cruises is unveiling three new itineraries as its ships resume cruising the rivers of Europe. Travel on the waterways of Holland and the Rhine to Cologne, on the Seine from Paris to the beaches of Normandy or on the Danube in the heart of Bohemia between Vienna and Regensburg. Special trips for solo travelers are also available on the Seine and Danube routes. The three new itineraries are eight-day cruises aboard the world-class Riviera fleet, one of the youngest in Europe.
We look forward to returning to the rivers of Europe, and when we do, guests will find three new itineraries that allow them to explore the classic sights and hidden gems of the Rhine, Seine and Danube, said Marilyn Conroy, Riviera River Cruises’ executive vice president of sales and marketing for North America. We hope that travel advisors and their customers will make us their favorite river cruise line with this and many other new cruises. As always, we fully support the travel agency community by only accepting bookings from consultants.
New cruising routes include:
-Amsterdam, Cologne and the best river cruise in the Netherlands and Flanders: Starting in the capital of the Netherlands, take a sea journey through Rotterdam and the cobbled streets of Antwerp before arriving in the 2000 year old city of Cologne, Germany. See the colorful canals of Amsterdam, the architecture of Rotterdam, the incredible windmills of Kinderdijk, the UNESCO-listed sights of Bruges and the impressive Gothic double dome of Cologne, and visit the hot air balloon museum or Paleis Het Loo near Arnhem.
-Cruise on the Seine, Paris and Normandy: Sail from the heart of Paris along the curves and chalk cliffs of France’s Seine Valley to historic Normandy and back. Visit Le Andlis and the ruins of Richard the Lionheart’s castle, the picturesque port of Honfleur, Monet’s house and garden in Giverny, and visit the medieval town of Rouen, Bayeux with its tapestry depicting the Norman invasion of England, the D-Day landings at Omaha Beach, the Norman American Cemetery, and iconic sites in Paris, such as the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Champs Elysees, Sacre Coeur and more.
-Vienna, Bohemia and the treasures of a Danube cruise: Travel from the Austrian capital to the ancient Roman garrison of Regensburg and back with a guided tour of picturesque Bohemia. Visit Krems and its hilltop Gottweig Abbey, Passau and the grounds of the former Cistercian Oldersbach Monastery, as well as Linz and its charming Old Town, and explore Vienna’s former Habsburg Palace and Schonbrunn, the winding streets and elegant squares of Regensburg, and the majestic Cesky Krumlov Castle overlooking the Vltava River.
Riviera River Cruises offers 20 itineraries on 10 rivers and waterways, including special cruises for solo travelers at no additional cost to a single passenger. Its fleet of 12 world-class vessels is one of the youngest in Europe, with ships less than six years old. Riviera cruises offer spacious staterooms and suites, exquisite dining experiences ranging from full breakfasts to four-course dinners featuring international classics and regional delicacies, and expertly guided tours of classic sights and lesser-known destinations.
Riviera guarantees exceptional value and never promises to add extras or hidden fees. Riviera also doesn’t automatically include gifts or drinks, so the choice is left up to the guests.
