Riviera Travel has added two ‘Discovery Cruises’ to its 2025 European river cruise programme.

The four-day itineraries will both depart in March 2025 and have been designed to offer all the hallmarks of a Riviera cruise over a shorter duration.

The ‘Rhine Gorge & Cologne Discovery’ voyage will feature guided tours of Rüdesheim and Cologne, and the opportunity to sail through the Rhine Gorge.

Prices start from £799pp, including return flights or Eurostar, with regional options, and a free superior drinks package.

Rüdesheim captivates all its visitors with its quaint charm and narrow cobblestone streets lined with timber-framed buildings.

After their guided tour, your customers will have the opportunity to sample exquisite local wines in atmospheric taverns during time at leisure.

In Cologne, it’s hard to miss the Gothic cathedral as it stretches skywards. Beyond this iconic landmark, a rich history is waiting to be discovered in the old town and bustling markets.

The highlight of this river cruise is the voyage through the jaw-dropping Rhine Gorge, boasting dramatic natural scenery punctuated by the silent ruins of medieval castles and fortresses.

The ‘Seine, Paris & Monet’s Garden Discovery’ cruise includes a visit to Monet’s house and garden in Giverny, a tour of Paris and scenic cruising along the Seine.

Prices start from £799pp, including return flights or Eurostar with regional options, and a free superior drinks package.

Your customer’s first stop is Vernon, located just a short distance from Giverny, and the natural paradise that is Monet’s garden.

During their guided tour, they’ll see firsthand why the founder of Impressionist painting was so inspired by its ever-changing blooms.

And then it’s back to chic Paris. The sightseeing here is endless – Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, Champs Élysées, Eiffel Tower and much more.

Will Sarson, Head of Product Cruise and Long Haul at Riviera, said:

“The introduction of these cruises gives guests who want to sample a river sailing the opportunity to experience the wonders of a European getaway.

“From Monet’s garden to the mighty Rhine Gorge, our ‘discovery cruises’ may be short but the itineraries are packed full of destination highlights and fabulous experiences.”
