Riviera Unveils Festive Sailings

Riviera River Cruises will be offering new cruises on Europe’s Danube and Rhine rivers over Christmas and New Year’s during the 2020-21 holiday season.

On Christmas cruises, passengers will be able to explore festive markets, then enjoy a Christmas Day gala dinner and Christmas musical performances back on board the ship.

On New Year’s cruises, ring in 2021 with drinks and canapés on board the ship at midnight New Year’s Eve, then wake to a New Year’s Day brunch.

Marilyn Conroy, Riviera River Cruises’ executive vice-president sales and marketing North America, said, “The holidays are one of the most beautiful times of the year to visit Europe, and travel advisors can now send their clients there to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s with Riviera. They’ll cruise the Danube and Rhine rivers in their wintry splendour, exploring markets filled with festive lights, artisan decorations and seasonal treats, then return to the comfort of the ship for Christmas dinner or to toast the New Year at midnight if desired.”

Conroy continued, “And now that we can better support advisors by arranging flights and extra hotel nights for clients as part of our booking process, we hope you’ll think of Riviera first for your clients’ holiday travels abroad.”
