Riverside Luxury Cruises to launch third ship in March

Riverside Luxury Cruises has announced its third ship will enter service in March.

Riverside Debussy will depart on its inaugural six-day voyage from Brussels to Amsterdam on March 23, 2024, calling at destinations in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.

The vessel will then depart on a series of Rhine sailings, offering five itineraries: Holland at the Heart of Tulip Blossom; the Romantic Rhine Southbound; the Romantic Rhine Northbound; Cruising Belgium and the Netherlands; and the Rhine and Main, Amsterdam to Nuremburg.

In total it will offer more than 40 departures in 2024.

German parent hotel company Seaside Collection entered the luxury river cruise market last year by creating the Riverside brand following the acquisition of the former Crystal Cruises river fleet.

To celebrate the launch of Riverside Debussy, Riverside Luxury Cruises is offering €500 onboard credit per suite on bookings made by December 28 across any of the line’s fleet. Bookings must depart between March and June 2024 to qualify.

Managing director UK Charlie Hewitt-Davies said: “Riverside Luxury Cruises’ three elegant ships are floating, luxury boutique hotels that bring guests on immersive and all-inclusive European holidays.

“Riverside Debussy, Riverside Mozart and Riverside Ravel dock daily in a new town or city centre so guests can walk off and immediately experience the beauty and culture of inland locales that cruise ships cannot reach.

“We look forward to welcoming discerning travellers and delivering more culture, more celebrations and more luxury in 2024.”
