Riviera Travel announces 2023 ocean cruise programme

The launch includes three new itineraries, including on the Ocean Albatros, which is currently under construction

Riviera Travel has launched its ocean cruise programme for 2023, with 10 itineraries available to book now, including several newcomers.

Numerous sailings are returning due to demand. Among the new itineraries are the Aegean Odyssey voyage on the Star Flyer. It includes a seven-day sailing, two nights in Istanbul and one night in Athens, with guided tours in both cities. Departing May 4, guests will also take in Pergamon, Chios, Patmos, Santorini and Monemvasia.

The 16-sail, 162-guest Star Flyer is a reconstruction of a 19th century, four-masted vessel. 

Two voyages on the new Ocean Albatros expedition ship are also on offer. The Arctic & Spitsbergen eight-day sailing, with a pre and post stay in Oslo, departs on June 7. It includes the opportunity to experience the midnight sun from within the Arctic Circle, visit the vast glaciers and fjords of Spitsbergen, and sail along the rim of the Arctic pack ice.

A Buenos Aires & Voyage to Antarctica ten-day sailing departs on December 2, which additionally includes three nights in the Argentine capital Buenos Aires and one night in Ushuaia. 

The 194-guest Ocean Albatros is currently under construction and is being built specifically to navigate the Arctic and Antarctica. It includes an observation lounge, lecture room and panorama restaurant. A speaker programme by the onboard expert guides will be on offer.

All itineraries include return flights and transfers, a programme of guided tours and visits, select meals and an expert tour manager throughout.

Katja Hildebrandt, head of product for river and ocean cruise, said: “We take great pride in putting together the very best in ocean cruise experiences, so we’re pleased to make several favourite sailings available again, as well as introduce three new and exciting options.

 “Whether you’re looking to explore the unchartered territories of the Arctic and Antarctica via a custom-made expedition ship, or simply looking to kick back and relax in the sun as you make your way around stunning European coastlines in one of our exclusively-chartered luxury vessels, we can offer the perfect 2023 holiday at sea.”

Riviera Travel also has a limited number of places available on select 2022 ocean cruises, departing this September.
