Europe River

Christmas and New Year festive river cruises offered for the first time

From Christmas 2020 – Fares from only A$2629. No Single Supplement for Solo Passengers

The growing popularity of Riviera Travel River Cruises’ Yuletide Market cruises in Europe has prompted the five-star cruise line to offer short-break river cruises from Cologne and Budapest over Christmas and New Year for the first time from this December.

Four brand new sailings have been introduced on the Rhine and Danube rivers, with each offering a selection of cabins that solo travellers can use with no single supplement.

The four new festive sailings, including Christmas Day or New Year’s Day, are:

* Christmas on the Rhine – eight days, round-trip from Cologne, sailing December 21, 2020

* Christmas on the Blue Danube – eight days, round-trip from Budapest, sailing December 21, 2020

* New Year on the Rhine – six days, round-trip from Cologne, sailing December 28, 2020

* New Year on the Blue Danube – six days, round-trip from Budapest, sailing December 28, 2020

All four cruises will take guests to medieval old towns embellished in winter sparkle, with cobblestone squares filled with carollers, glittering Christmas trees and market stalls laden with roasting chestnuts, hot mulled wine, decorations and gifts.
