Shearings Holidays’ 2020 river cruise brochure features 62 itineraries across 32 ships, including a 14-page worldwide rivers section for the first time – the most comprehensive programme in the company’s history.

What’s more, Shearings has released its first mini brochure dedicated to ocean cruises for 2019-2020. It features 15 cruises including a selection of itineraries with Cruise & Maritime Voyages and two worldwide cruises – one with Hurtigruten and one with Holland America Line. Prices start at £244pp for a three-day Dublin Mini-Cruise on board MS Magellan

Agents can earn a £25 Love2Shop voucher for every river cruise booking made before 30 June 2019. There is also a discount of £100 per couple for bookings made up to 14 June.

The tour operator has partnered with Amadeus River Cruises for the river brochure and features four ships – Amadeus Silver II, Amadeus Star, Amadeus Silver III and Amadeus Imperial.

Shearings Holidays managing director Jane Atkins said: “Partnering with Amadeus Cruises means agents now have a five-star option to promote to customers who want a luxury offering.

“We pride ourselves in offering a full range of river cruises and for 2020 we now have everything from entry-level three star cruise options, right up to five star. When this is coupled with our transport choices, be it coach, rail or air, our 2020 portfolio really is our most comprehensive and flexible ever.”

Capacity with A-Rosa has been doubled, featuring a total of 22 itineraries – 10 of which are new to the programme – on six ships. Departures on A-Rosa Alvathe newest ship in the A-Rosa fleet – will also be featured online. Prices start at £789pp for a five-day Paris & Versailles itinerary.

There are nine itineraries with CroisiEurope, with prices for a seven-day In the Footsteps of the Impressionists themed cruise on the MS Seine Princess starting at £1,339pp. 

Regarding the ocean brochure, Atkins added: “We wanted to provide agents with something tangible that they could use to promote our ocean cruise programme, as until now it has only been online. We are currently looking at the possibility of creating a full ocean cruise brochure in the autumn with a wider selection of carefully selected cruise partners, offering more itineraries around the world for 2020 and 2021.”

Shearings also has a number of tours that include a cruise element on rivers such as the Amazon, Nile, Yangtze, Li, Mekong and Kinabatangan.
