Riverside Luxury Voyages to run extended sailings in 2025

Newcomer Riverside Luxury Cruises is to run extended sailings on European rivers next year.

Itineraries of between three and 23 nights in duration are part of the three-ship lines 2025 programme.  

More than 170 departures on 52 itineraries by the vessels Riverside Debussy, Riverside Ravel and Riverside Mozart have gone on sale.

Itineraries that combine cruises on both Riverside Debussy and Riverside Ravel for extended trips have been introduced on the Rhine and Rhone rivers. 

Riverside Debussy will also cruise the Main and Moselle rivers and join Riverside Mozart on the Danube. The ships will stay overnight in many destinations.

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

Riverside Debussy will begin its second year of service on April 2, 2025 with a seven-night voyage during the tulip-blooming season in the Dutch countryside from Amsterdam.

Riverside Ravel and Riverside Mozart will start the 2025 season on April 10 and April 17, respectively. 

Riverside Ravel will cruise a three-night, Rhone sampler from Lyon to Avignon, with visits to Viviers, Tarascon and Arles. 

Riverside Mozart will run an Easter voyage on the Danube from Passau in Germany to Budapest.

A number of Christmas markets sailings have been scheduled for late November.

UK managing director Charlie Hewitt Davies said: “We’re thrilled to have our 2025 itineraries live and ready for booking. 

“Riverside Luxury Cruises offers unparalleled luxury on some of Europe’s most breathtaking waters. Our all-suite ships – Riverside Mozart, Riverside Ravel, and newly inaugurated Riverside Debussy – offer the most spacious accommodations, highest staff-to-guest ratio, and more onboard amenities than any other river cruise line. 

“We look forward to welcoming both new and familiar faces onboard in 2025 and beyond.”
