Riviera adds three new itineraries for solo travellers

Based on demand for longer cruises, Riviera River Cruises has announced it will offer new “back-to-back” itineraries in 2025.
Lasting from 15 to 29 days, the five back-to-back itineraries allow guests to experience two Riviera cruises combined into one without changing ships, taking in the most interesting cities and inspiring scenery along Europe’s Rhine, Moselle and Danube Rivers.
Riviera will also offer three new cruises exclusively for solo travelers, including its first holiday season itineraries for solo travellers.
“An increasing number of travellers have been asking us about longer cruises, with some even booking two in a row – we’ve taken the cue from them and created these new ‘back-to-back’ itineraries for 2025,” said Marilyn Conroy, executive vice-president sales and marketing North America for Riviera River Cruises. “These itineraries allow travellers to enjoy cruising Europe with us from two weeks to nearly a month without having to change ships. We’re also adding to our popular solo traveler collection with three new itineraries, including two that visit Christmas markets.”
