VIVA Continues Its Covid Comeback!

After the successful restart of its European itineraries post lockdown, river cruise specialist, VIVA Cruises, is expanding its offering for 2021.

As well as continuing with the programmes on board MS TREASURES and MS INSPIRE, the newly renovated SWISS DIAMOND will be joining the VIVA Cruises family next year, resuming the company’s Baltic cruises.

The addition of SWISS DIAMOND and the reintroduction of the line’s itineraries along the Baltic Coast are some of the highlights of the river specialist’s 2021 programme. SWISS DIAMOND, with capacity for 123 passengers, was fully refurbished in 2019 and now features a fresh, modern look.

Passengers will have the opportunity to discover the popular Baltic region on two cruises leaving from the German city of Stralsund: “Baltic Islands” and “Island hopping Baltic Sea”. The itineraries will run from May to October 2021, with prices starting at €1,395 (approximately £1,240) per person in a two-bed cabin.

Also, two of VIVA Cruises’ most popular ships, MS TREASURES and MS INSPIRE, will be offering four-night cruises along the Main and Rhine throughout summer 2021. Among the highlights of the Main river are the picturesque German towns of Wertheim and Würzburg, while the main cruises on the Rhine will take visitors to Strasbourg (France) via Mannheim. Passengers can also look forward to classic Danube routes visiting must-see cities including Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava – as well as the six-night Rhine Winter Fairy Tale cruises between Düsseldorf and Strasbourg running throughout the Christmas period.
