Riviera Travel has launched a full programme of Christmas and New Year cruises for December 2023 following the success of their 2022 festive cruises.
There are a total of 20 voyages across six itineraries on both the Rhine and the Danube on sale.
Highlights of the 2023 season include the five-day Enchanting Rhine and Yuletide Markets, which includes guided tours of Bonn, Rüdesheim, Koblenz and Cologne, and the eight-day Christmas on the Blue Danube, including tours of Vienna, Salzburg or Linz, Budapest and Bratislava.
“This special programme of festive river cruises provides a perfect, magical way for our guests to celebrate,” said Katja Hildebrandt, head of cruise at Riviera Travel.
“Whether they’re looking for something before, during, or after Christmas to welcome in the New Year, these sailings have something for everyone.
“The Yuletide markets never fail to get our guests in the Christmas spirit, and with celebrations onboard to match via our handpicked menus and entertainment, everyone will return home with memories to last a lifetime.
“We’ve seen fantastic demand for our programme this year, so we’d encourage guests looking to enjoy a festive 2023 cruise to book early to avoid missing out.”
Prices include return flights with regional airport options available, Eurostar travel on select itineraries, full board and scheduled visits and tours. Excursions are available in every port visited, while sailings also include onboard lectures, port talks, entertainment and regional menus.
