Time to try a Riviera cruise in 2022 & 2023

Time to try a Riviera cruise in 2022 & 2023

If your group is contemplating a river cruise, at Riviera we’d like to think our varied and wonderful itineraries provide all the inspiration your members need for a superb holiday along Europe’s most iconic rivers.

From the mighty Danube to the gently meaning Moselle, romantic twists and turns of the Seine or dramatic Douro Valley – wake up somewhere new each day and explore fascinating cities and picturesque towns with expert local guides who’ll bring each destination to life and enjoy time at leisure to go at your own pace too.

There’s no doubt that river cruising is one of the most relaxing ways to holiday and if your group has never considered it, there might be a few things you all didn’t know about life on board our ships that’ll tempt your members to dip their toe in the water! And when you book with Riviera, you’ll receive 10% back for your club after you’ve travelled.


Wonderfully light and spacious cabins

When we say our ships are five-star, we mean exactly that. No matter which cabin type or deck you go for, we have no inside cabins and every single one has a window – in fact those on higher decks have full length floor to ceiling sliding glass doors to maximise the natural light as well as the exceptional views.

Our cabins are some of the largest you’ll find on any European river cruise ships, sumptuously furnished and stylishly appointed with pristine gleaming en-suite facilities with high-quality fittings. You’ll be blown away by the elegance and space of the public areas too, with beautiful lighting and sparkling surfaces.

With all the style and glamour of a larger cruise ship but all the social intimacy and personal service of a much smaller and more exclusive vessel, it really is no understatement to compare our ships to floating boutique hotels. Now who doesn’t fancy a touch of that on holiday?


Costs less than you think

When we say five-star, your budget alarm bells might start ringing. But with all meals included, plus afternoon tea and complimentary tea, coffee and water always available, plus a fascinating visit or guided tour with a knowledgeable local expert each day, you might find a river cruise costs less than you think.

And to ensure there’s one less thing to worry about whilst you’re away, Riviera now also offer the useful option to purchase on-board credit before you travel – for use to buy drinks in the bar and restaurant at any time, or in the spa or ship’s boutique.

You can purchase on-board credit in denominations of €50 so you can choose exactly the amount to suit your budget.

The incredible architecture of Budapest.

Convenient Drinks Package

This pre-paid option could be perfect for you if you intend spending lots of time ashore and just plan to purchase your drinks with meals only.

Enjoy a selection of drinks in the restaurant served during lunch and dinner; there’s a good range of draught and non-alcoholic beers available, soft drinks, juices and thoughtful wine recommendations – all by the glass.


Push the boat out with Riviera Plus

Holidays are all about spoiling yourself after all, so when you upgrade to an upper deck cabin or any of the superior or deluxe suites, you’ll also enjoy Riviera Plus – a range of extra special touches to enhance your stay on board and ashore.

As you settle into your sumptuous cabin you’ll be welcomed by a chilled bottle of sparkling wine, and luxurious L’Occitane en Provence toiletries in your sparkling bathroom.  A smart handset is a handy companion when you’re out and about, plus unlimited calls, text messages and internet usage – both whilst you’re relaxing on board and ashore – is useful for staying in touch.

There’ll be a fresh seasonal fruit platter to enjoy in your cabin during the cruise too, and every evening, an aperitif in the convivial bar before dinner can be a perfect way to chat with your fellow cruisers.
