Selling Travel - - The Review - BY STEVE HAR­TRIDGE

RIVIERA Travel fea­tures four new ships, four new itin­er­ar­ies and one new des­ti­na­tion in its 2018/19 River Cruise pro­gramme.

The op­er­a­tor has 14 Euro­pean river cruise itin­er­ar­ies, ser­viced by 13 five-star ships, in­clud­ing its new ‘all suite’ ships.

Eight of Europe’s most pop­u­lar rivers and wa­ter­ways are the ar­ter­ies for itin­er­ar­ies that put a pre­mium on ‘au­then­tic lo­cal ex­pe­ri­ences’ – whether that’s wine tast­ing in the vine­yards of Bur­gundy or vis­it­ing Mozart’s birth­place in Salzburg.

The four new itin­er­ar­ies in­clude two ded­i­cated solo cruises – on the Blue Danube (eight days from £1,699) and the Rhone Val­ley (eight days from £1,899pp). This year will see the launch of MSDouroS­plen­dour and MSRobertBurns, while the 2019 will see the ar­rival of MSDy­lanThomas and the MS Ge­orgeEliot. riv­ier­a­travel.co.uk
