All itineraries include a free superior drinks package, direct return flights, transfers, all visits and guided tours, breakfast and select meals, and the services of a tour manager throughout.

Will Sarson, Head of Product at Riviera Travel, said: “The introduction of combination cruises means we can provide longer, more in-depth voyages, taking guests deeper into the heart of some very special destinations. From exploring medieval Germany on the Grand cruise of the Rhine Gorge, to soaking up culture and history with a guided tour of Heidelberg, there’s an array of experiences to suit all tastes.

“Our new solo itineraries show that we are once again going the extra mile to ensure that independent travellers have a broad range of options to choose from. They can explore the famous festive markets along the Danube and Rhine, and discover the likes of Antwerp, Arnhem and the spectacular Keukenhof flower garden on a Dutch Bulbfields voyage.”

Itineraries are on sale from 29 February 2024.
