Riviera Travel to resume European river cruises end of August

Riviera Travel has confirmed that its European river and yacht cruises will restart from 20 August.

Sailings are available up to 22 November 2021, with departures exclusively for solo travellers also on offer. Cruises include English-speaking crew, local guides, full board and complimentary on-board wifi.

Itineraries are as follows:

  • The Seine, Paris & Normandy from 31 August
  • Douro, Porto & Salamanca from 20 August
  • Burgundy, the River Rhone & Provence from 6 September
  • Medieval Germany from 9 September
  • Croatian yacht cruises from 28 August

Riviera Travel CEO Phil Hullah said: “As international travel continues to open up, we’re delighted to be able to offer holidaymakers the chance to sail on some of the most picturesque rivers and seas of Europe again. We would like to thank the trade for all their support, as we appreciate the uncertainty that has surrounded travel and cruise during the past 18 months.

“And the wealth of offers we have available means now is the perfect time to book a 2021 cruise for customers looking to sail this year.

“The prospect of fresh sea air, open decks and spacious areas on board, together with our fantastic incentives, is the perfect combination for would-be holidaymakers. The fact that our sailings will guarantee there being no quarantine requirements on either side, and that all guests will be fully vaccinated, ensures an extra level of reassurance.”

To mark its return, the line has unveiled a range of offers for guests who book a sailing for this year.

All river cruises now include complimentary inbound and outbound testing and a free drinks package. The package covers all restaurant draught beer, house wines, wine recommendations from the menu, non-alcoholic beer, soft drinks and juices.

An extra £100 off per person is also available on all voyages, while there are now additional cabins with no single supplement on all river and yacht cruises.

Yacht sailings will also offer the courtesy testing offer and an extra £100pp off.

Offers are available on bookings made up to 30 September 2021. Any sailings that don’t depart as scheduled can be transferred to a later date free of charge, or guests can receive a full refund.
