Riviera Travel has launched three brand-new 10-night European river cruises for 2024, with a total of 15 new departures on offer, sailing from April to October next year. They join an additional 13 European river cruise itineraries, which went on sale late last year.
The new itineraries are enhancements of three of Riviera’s most in-demand, shorter seven-night sailings. They follow the popularity of the 10-night Lyon, Provençal Rhône and the Camargue cruise, introduced by the river specialist for this year, which has already sold out its first three months of departures.
New for 2024 are:
Cologne, the Rhine Gorge & Medieval Germany – Includes ten guided tours of Cologne, Andernach, Rüdesheim, Mainz, Miltenberg, Wertheim, Würzburg, Ochsenfurt, Bamberg and Nuremberg. It also features a visit to Braubach, a drive along the Romantic Road to Rothenburg and a sailing through the Rhine Gorge. Prices from £2999.
Paris, Normandy & Historic Treasures of the Seine – Comprises seven guided tours to Paris, Auvers-sur-Oise, Rouen, the D-Day Normandy Beaches, Honfleur or Étretat, Abbey Jumièges and Abbey St Wandrille and the Château de Malmaison, plus two visits, to Caudebec-en-Caux and Claude Monet’s house and garden. Prices from £2699.
The Moselle, Luxembourg & The Majestic Rhine – Nine guided tours to Koblenz, Luxembourg, Trier, Cochem, Rüdesheim, Worms, either Heidelberg or Schwetzingen Palace Gardens, Marksburg Castle and Cologne. Plus three visits to Andernach, Speyer and Bonn and a sailing through the Rhine Gorge. Prices from £2899.
Prices include return flights with regional airport options available at no additional cost; Eurostar travel on select itineraries; full board; and all scheduled visits and tours.
Excursions are available every day, while sailings also include on-board lectures, port talks, entertainment and authentic regional menus, plus the services of a Riviera Travel cruise director and concierge throughout.
An optional on-board drinks package is available to purchase, which offers a selection of drinks during lunch and dinner. The package for the 10-night sailings starts from £219pp.
The three new sailings form part of Riviera’s early booking campaign, which offers guests a 10% saving when booking their 2024 river cruise before February 28, 2023.
