TUI River Cruises
TUI River Cruises
From summer 2020, TUI will be expanding into river cruising following the purchase of three passenger ships. TUI River Cruises will offer adults the ultimate flexibility to create their perfect trip when it comes to river cruising, with the option to create bespoke packages to suit their every need. Customers will choose their board basis, whether that’s full board plus with wine, beer and soft drinks included with meals, or selecting the premium drinks package, cabin type and even their favourite cocktail in the lounge. The cruise line will also boast a handful of private balcony suites for those seeking to add even more luxury to their package.
TUI River Cruises will offer active excursions for avid adventurers, sightseeing tours with a local expert for those looking to broaden their knowledge, relax and learn, and those looking to try something a little different can experience a bike tour. The cruise line will also offer £120 credit to put towards any shore excursion bookings, allowing each customer the perfect opportunity to tailor their holiday to suit them.
Similar to the fantastic atmosphere onboard TUI’s ocean cruises, TUI River Cruises will ensure there’s the perfect atmosphere whatever the occasion. The ships will offer chic and revamped spaces perfect for relaxing and watching the world go by, romantic á la carte dinners for two, casual dining and social spaces to enjoy with friends as well as some of TUI’s world class entertainment. Travellers will also benefit from some of the extras customers have grown to know and love with a Marella Cruises holiday, such as tips and service charges included in the price.
Chris Hackney, Managing Director of Cruise for TUI UK and Ireland said: “We’re incredibly excited to be moving into the river cruise market, we’re always looking for new opportunities to offer our customers even more variety when it comes to choosing the perfect holiday and our river cruises will really take this to the next level as customers are able to personalise their package whether that’s board type, cabins, excursions and even cocktail choice. We’re very proud to be known for the friendliest service, exciting itineraries and great value for money when it comes to our ocean cruises and we look forward to bringing this to TUI River Cruises.”
