Launch of Australian brochure for 2021 program

June 2, 2020 River Cruising No Comments Email Email

Riviera Travel River Cruises has launched an Australian brochure for its biggest-ever program of river cruises in Europe in 2021. Priced in Australian dollars, the full, 152-page brochure is available in contactless, digital, flip-page form on the cruise line’s special Australian site,

The brochure highlights a new, five-star ship, a record number of sailings, a brand new cruise itinerary, new-look dining amenities, new VIP benefits and more solo-only cruises.

Riviera Travel River Cruises will offer a record 350 sailings across Europe in 2021 on an unprecedented 20 different itineraries and 14 luxury river ships, including the new, five-star MS Geoffrey Chaucer, named after the 14th Century poet. The 169-guest ship – offering a panoramic lounge, two restaurants, gym, plunge pool (heated in winter) – will reaffirm Riviera Travel’s fleet as one of the youngest in Europe.

The new 2021 brochure also includes a new itinerary for 2021. The eight-day ‘Amsterdam, Cologne and the Best of Holland and Flanders’ river cruise from Amsterdam to Cologne will feature the canals, windmills, palaces and cultural highlights of Holland, the cobbled, medieval streetscapes of Belgium and the Gothic marvels of Cologne in Germany.

The new itinerary complements Riviera Travel’s 19 other itineraries across Europe including journeys along the Rhine, Moselle, Danube, Seine, Rhone and Douro rivers as well as Yuletide Market cruises and new Christmas and New Year itineraries scheduled to commence for the first time this December.

Riviera Travel River Cruises’ 2021 brochure also features 10 sailings across Europe exclusively for solo travellers, with all cabins reserved for solo-use, free of single supplements. Fares for solo-only cruises in 2021 start at A$1859 for a five-day sailing. In addition, Riviera Travel will again reserve a selection of supplement-free cabins for solo travellers on all 350 departures in 2021.

The 2021 brochure also details expanded dining options across Riviera Travel’s fleet next year. Chefs in the main restaurants will prepare ‘Local Flavours’ dishes every evening inspired by the regions the cruises visit, such as traditional Hungarian soup, French cassoulet or indulgent Dutch desserts. Expert sommeliers also will curate a choice of wines showcasing grapes from local vineyards. The fleet’s stern bistro restaurants will also be re-envisioned. On cruises through France, guests will find classic French charcuterie, regional cheeses and traditional boulangerie in the newly named ‘La Brasserie’ restaurant while on Rhine and Danube cruises, classic European dishes will accompany wonderful al fresco views from the newly branded ‘Riverview Kitchen’ restaurant.  Meals in these casual, bistro-style restaurants are included in fares.

Also new in the 2021 brochure is ‘Riviera Plus’, a program for premium passengers in deluxe and superior suites and all upper-deck cabins. Benefits include use of a smart handset with maps, translator, currency converter, unlimited calls, text messages and internet service while on board or ashore. L’Occitane en Provence luxury toiletries, a bottle of chilled Prosecco on arrival, a platter of fresh seasonal fruits during the cruise and an aperitif each evening.

Riviera Travel is 100 per cent committed to Australian travel agents with all Australian bookings coming through the company’s Australian GSA, Cruise Traveller.

Fares in 2021 for an eight-day cruise start at A$2459 per person, twin-share, or also for solo guests, subject to cabin availability. Fares include shore tours as well as free Wi-Fi.  Drink packages in 2021 are available from A$199 per person for an eight-day cruise.
