Viva Cruises to showcase its first built ship, Viva ONE, at CLIA RiverView Conference next week

Viva One (Courtesy Viva Cruises)European river cruise specialist, VIVA Cruises, is participating in CLIA RiverView Conference 2024 next week, taking place in Amsterdam 11-13 March.

Through its very first built, VIVA ONE, VIVA Cruises will be showcasing its latest river cruising innovations and trends to a wide number of travel agents and industry professionals.

VIVA ONE will be moored in Amsterdam and available for agents to visit across the two-day river cruise conference, as well as hosting lunches and dinners. The ship was the very first one that VIVA Cruises designed and built from scratch – and launched in April 2022. It has 88 modern cabins for 176 guests – including double beds and junior suites – and two restaurants. VIVA ONE also features VIVA Cruises’ look and feel, including a modern design in blue tones, wooden furniture and a casual atmosphere which agents will be able to experience next week.

VIVA Cruises was founded in 2018 as the first in house tour operator of Swiss shipping company, Scylla AG. Since then, it has grown rapidly and now boasts an eight-ship fleet sailing on major European rivers, including VIVA ONE and VIVA TWO – their two very own build ships; with the third one, VIVA ENJOY, launching at the end of this year. VIVA Cruises has also recently announced new Douro itineraries on board new built ship, PORTO MIRANTE, from May 2025.

Andrea Kruse, CEO of VIVA Cruises, said: “We are delighted to be part of CLIA RiverView, where industry leaders come together to exchange insights about river cruising. At VIVA Cruises, we are committed to delivering exceptional journeys that exceed our guests’ expectations, and this conference presents an invaluable opportunity to showcase our first built ship, VIVA ONE, and to connect with peers and shape the future of our industry.”

Next week’s CLIA RiverView Conference, now in its 12th year, will focus on key themes such as sustainability, innovation, new itineraries and attracting first-time customers.

VIVA Cruises became a European Regional Affiliate member of CLIA in 2023.
