Viva One (Courtesy Viva Cruises)After last month’s christening, VIVA ONE, VIVA Cruises’ first new build ship, has started running a variety of exciting itineraries on the Rhine and Moselle rivers.

To celebrate the launch of the new ship, the river cruise specialist is offering a free cabin upgrade and a reduced single cabin surcharge for all May and June 2022 departures – available on all VIVA Cruises ships.

Launched last month, VIVA ONE has 88 modern cabins for 176 guests – including double beds and junior suites (most of them equipped with French balconies) and four suites featuring balconies with a table and two chairs.

The new ship is offering a variety of five- and seven-night itineraries on the Rhine and Moselle rivers throughout 2022 and 2023 – most of them departing from the port of Düsseldorf, where VIVA Cruises is based.

Some itineraries include:

· Rhine Spirit (5 nights): visiting Mannheim, Cologne, Coblenz, Rüdesheim, Mainz and Frankfurt. From £650 per person;
· Enchanting Rhine (7 nights): visiting Düsseldorf, Coblenz, Boppard, Mainz, Speyer and Strasbourg. From £1,350 per person;
· Beautiful Flanders (7 nights): visiting Düsseldorf, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Ghent, Antwerp and Nijmegen. From £1,095 per person;
· Rhine City Trip (7 nights): visiting Amsterdam, Utrecht, Düsseldorf, Coblenz, Speyer, Strasbourg and Basel. From £1,350 per person.

VIVA Cruises is offering customers a free upgrade to the next higher cabin category and a reduced single cabin surcharge of 20% for all May and June 2022 departures. Bookings can be for all the VIVA Cruises fleet, including VIVA ONE. All itineraries can be seen and booked on the VIVA Cruises website.

One of the highlights of VIVA ONE is the variety and quality of its food offering. The new ship has two restaurants: Riverside, featuring a wide selection of breakfast, lunch and dinner menus – including vegetarian and vegan meals; and VIVA’s Bistro, offering a casual atmosphere and a wide selection of snacks and smaller dishes.

VIVA ONE is also the first ship in the VIVA Cruises fleet to use state-of-the-art hybrid technology that is kinder to the environment. VIVA ONE has 68 solar cells distributed on the sun deck; uses sulphur-free GTL (Gas to Liquid) fuel, which significantly reduces CO² consumption and emissions; and features an improved autopilot function which does not only simplify navigation but also helps to reduce the consumption of fuel.

All VIVA ONE itineraries feature VIVA Cruises’ signature VIVA All-Inclusive product, which includes snacks, full board, high-quality alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, self-service coffee stations and water stations, minibar, beauty products from luxury cosmetic brand, Rituals, Wi-Fi and all tips and gratuities.
