New For 2024 – Extra Special Cruises For Riviera’s 40th Anniversary Year

New For 2024 – Extra Special Cruises For Riviera’s 40th Anniversary Year

Next year marks Riviera’s 40th year of operating exceptional holidays so why not join us on a cruise in our anniversary year.

Whether you’re celebrating something special too or simply fancy joining in the fun, we’ve a nautical adventure that’s perfect for you. And don’t forget, when you book with Riviera, you’ll receive 10% back for your club after you’ve travelled.

Brand new for 2024 we’re launching a superb new ship on the Douro. State-of-the-art, spacious and stylish, the MS Porto Mirante with her boutique hotel feel is worth shouting about. After a day exploring, there’s chance to unwind with a dip in the splash pool in the sun, before drinking in the views – together with the cocktail of the day perhaps. This new 8-day river cruise includes our Superior drinks package (worth £400pp) thrown in for free, so when you accompany this with the faultless Riviera crew – you won’t have to worry about a thing, and whether you’re a wine aficionado, history buff or architecture enthusiast, there’s something for every traveller’s taste.

As always, Riviera includes so much: five-star accommodation, full-board with fine-dining in the evenings which is sure to be a highlight, regional return flights and transfers, services of a Cruise Director throughout, and all excursions – as well as the free Superior drinks package.

The MS Porto Mirante is set to hit the Douro in 2024.

Enjoy the high life. Book an upper deck cabin and along with great views of the river, you’ll get the benefits of Riviera Plus, meaning luxury toiletries waiting for you in your bathroom and a bottle of champagne to pop when you arrive, amongst other treats.

What’s more next summer, you can enjoy an upper deck cabin for the same price as middle deck. Riviera are offering a free cabin upgrade from middle to upper deck on river cruises departing between 15 July & 31 August 2024, worth up to £350pp! Make sure you book before 31 October 2023.

And in 2024 we’ll also be adding a new member to our fleet of luxury yachts, exclusively chartered by Riviera to cruise the dazzling shores of the Adriatic. On our new Venice, Split & Treasures of the North itinerary, start or finish your 7-night cruise with a 2-night hotel stay in the floating city. With glamour her middle name and a maximum of 36 guests, the striking MS Stella Maris wows on all fronts. Prepare to be impressed!

Cruise the dazzling shores of the Adriatic in the striking MS Stella Maris.

If ocean cruise is your thing, take a look at Riviera’s new 10-night Athens & Greek Islands Cruise aboard the newly refurbished Celestyal Journey. Starting your holiday in Athens, where you’ll spend one night in a five-star hotel, you’ll then be cruising on the Celestyal Journey for 7 nights, finishing in the Athenian Riviera, with a 2-night five-star beachside stay.

Over 11 days, we’ll explore ancient Athens, Heraklion in Crete, Santorini, trendy Mykonos and the picturesque island of Milos. As always, excursions are included – from a guided tour of Ephesus to a visit to the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion, with extra excursions bookable on board too.

River cruisers should also look out for new additions to our cruise extension collection, including Amsterdam, Porto and Vienna for 2024. If you like travelling with friends, why not benefit from 1 free place in 8 – and the advance bookings for river cruising in 2025 are now open!
