Riviera River Cruises Adds New 11-Day Itineraries for 2024
Riviera River Cruises has announced the addition of three new 11-day itineraries to its 2024 European river cruise schedule, building on eight-day itineraries on the sweeping bends of the Seine River in France and the magnificent Rhine River and its tributary, the Moselle River, in Germany.
The announcement of the new itineraries comes after Riviera experienced strong demand for its first 11-day itinerary, Lyon, Provençal Rhône and the Camargue River Cruise on the Saône and Rhône Rivers in 2023.
“After seeing the response to our new Saône and Rhône river cruise for this year, we’re excited to offer three more 11-day itineraries in 2024,” said Marilyn Conroy, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing North America for Riviera River Cruises.
“They’re the ideal fit between our eight-day cruises, which some might think aren’t quite long enough, and our 15-day cruises, which might leave others wanting to get home. And because they’re based on existing itineraries on the Seine, Rhine and Moselle Rivers, they allow guests to experience these regions a little more deeply.”
The three new 11-day itineraries are:
Paris, Normandy and Historic Treasures of the Seine River Cruise: From Paris to Le Havre and back on the Seine River, with guided tours and visits that include Paris, Château d’Auvers and the cemetery where Van Gogh is buried in Auvers-sur-Oise, Rouen, Normandy’s D-Day beaches, Honfleur or the Étretat chalk cliffs, the Abbey Jumièges ruins and Abbey St. Wandrille near Caudebec, Monet’s house and garden in Giverny, the Castle of La Roche Guyon and Château de Malmaison near Mantes-la-Jolie.
Cologne, the Rhine Gorge and Medieval Germany River Cruise: From Cologne to Nuremberg and back on the Rhine River, with guided tours and visits that include Cologne, Andernach, Braubach, Rüdesheim, Mainz, Miltenberg, Wertheim, Würzburg, the Romantic Road to Rothenburg, Ochsenfurt, Bamberg and Nuremberg, as well as sailing through the Rhine Gorge.
The Moselle, Luxembourg and the Majestic Rhine River Cruise: From Cologne to Trier on the Moselle River, Mannheim on the Rhine River and back to Cologne, with guided tours and visits that include Andernach, Koblenz, a wine tasting at a local cellar in Bernkastel, Luxembourg, Trier, Cochem, Rüdesheim and the surrounding vineyards, Worms, Mannheim or Speyer, Heidelberg or the Schwetzingen Palace garden, Marksburg Castle in Braubach, Bonn and Cologne, as well as sailing through the Rhine Gorge.
