5 reasons to choose Riviera

5 reasons to choose Riviera

In 2017 Riviera Travel was awarded Which? Magazine’s highly coveted ‘Travel Brand of the Year’. They are also rated by Berlitz’s ‘Guide to River Cruising in Europe’ as some of the finest vessels on Europe’s waterways. Since its inception in 1984, Riviera Travel’s commitment to outstanding value and quality has made it a leader in river cruising. Here are our five reasons to choose this highly-rated river cruise company.


  1. Each cruise represents incredible value for money with return journeys, transfers and guided shore excursions all included. The company also has a ‘Price Promise’ that there are never any hidden surcharges, nor are prices ever inflated to offer artificial discounts.


  1. The fleet of five-star and four-star superior vessels are primarily Swiss-built and operated. All ships have an excellent ratio of crew to guests; as well as friendly English-speaking staff who anticipate passengers’ every need in a manner that’s intuitive yet discreet.


  1. In addition to sumptuous buffet breakfasts and lunches, excellent four-course dinners feature international classics and regional specialities. On most of the five-star vessels there’s also the Stern Bar which transforms into the ‘Chef’s Restaurant’ with seating for no more than 34 diners who enjoy the freshest seasonal produce.


  1. Suites and cabins are amongst the largest on any river cruise vessels – the grandest suite comes in at an impressive 323 square feet – and 83 per cent of cabins feature a French or full balcony. Each deck is accessible via lift or stairs, while most vessels feature a sauna, steam room, pool, fitness suite and library as well as a hair salon.


  1. There’s a selection of five, eight and 15 day cruises covering 13 different itineraries along the Rhine; Moselle; Main; Danube; Rhone; Seine; and Douro Rivers as well as springtime cruises to the Dutch bulbfields and yuletide cruises to Christmas markets in cities along the Rhine. The company also offers worldwide river cruises along the spectacular Nile, Mekong, Ganges and Yangtze.


If these five reasons aren’t persuasive enough, for 2018 Riviera Travel are offering an optional drinks package which represents amazing value and includes a wide selection of drinks during lunch and dinner. The specialist team at Cruise Direct have details of Riviera Travel’s cruises at their fingertips so give them a call now on 0800 484 0370.
