New itineraries, ships and offerings draw more cruise travelers to European rivers
Europe continues to attract the interest of American travelers, and travel on river cruises is 1 of the very best methods to see many of the continent&rsquos sights and discover a lot of its history. In response to robust demand, cruise lines are supplying a lot of new and expanded solutions to accommodate this expanding travel interest:
Expanding to new rivers. Many river cruise lines are bolstering their cruise portfolios by expanding to rivers exactly where they haven&rsquot prior to presented itineraries. Such is the case with Tauck, a leader in premium high quality guided travel for 88 years, which is adding two new cruises on the Seine River in 2014. &ldquoCruising the Seine Plus Versailles, Paris & London,&rdquo 14 days, begins with an included two-evening remain in London at the landmark Savoy, full with guided sightseeing. Guests travel next to France for a nine-day cruise along the Seine, prior to enjoying an in-depth exploration of Paris and a two-night keep in Versailles at the Trianon Palace Versailles, a Waldorf Astoria property.
&ldquoRendezvous on the Seine,&rdquo 10 days, includes a two-evening remain in Paris. A subsequent seven-day cruise on the Seine is highlighted by a tour of Normandy&rsquos historic D-Day beaches, an excursion to seaside Honfleur, guided tours of abbeys and chateaux, and a farm go to and tasting of nearby specialties in Etretat.
Added offerings on current rivers. Numerous of the well-known rivers currently traveled by cruise lines will have extra alternatives added. These rivers include the Danube – exactly where travelers can visit Regensburg, Germany and travel to Bratislava, Slovakia &ndash and the Rhine, exactly where guests enjoy exploring nearby Amsterdam, Cologne and almost everything amongst to Basel, Switzerland.
New ships. Many river cruise lines are expanding their fleets to preserve up with demand, and Tauck is no exception. Next year the business will launch a pair of &ldquonewbuilds,&rdquo the ms Savor and ms Inspire. At 443 feet, the ships will be the longest in the business&rsquos fleet, but the new vessels will accommodate far fewer passengers than same-sized ships in other lines, to make sure a significantly less crowded and more intimate atmosphere. As with its existing ships, Tauck will also staff the new riverboats with a Cruise Director and three skilled Directors to provide the highest attainable levels of service.
