VIVA Cruises/fleet, a specialist in European river cruises, has unveiled its 2024 brochure featuring an impressive selection of 280+ voyages along renowned inland waterways such as the Rhine, Main, Danube, Moselle, Rhone, and Seine. Notably, the launch of their third purpose-built ship - VIVA Enjoy, stands as a major highlight.

VIVA's entire array of 2024 itineraries is now available for online booking.

Building upon the success of VIVA One ship's introduction in 2022 and the subsequent launch of VIVA Two earlier this year, the company (subsidiary of Scylla AG) is set to introduce VIVA Enjoy in September 2024. This unveiling adds to the allure of the 2024 catalog, where VIVA ENJOY showcases an aesthetic akin to VIVA's second newbuild riverboat. The Enjoy boasts 4 decks and 95 passenger staterooms (including 8 suites), and 3 onboard dining venues.

Throughout 2024, the Dusseldorf-based company is set to offer a diverse collection of 85 different itineraries, encompassing a remarkable tally of more than 280 voyages across its fleet of 8 boats. These itineraries cater to an array of preferences, spanning from concise four-night urban getaways and festive Christmas and New Year's cruises to the perennially popular themed sailings. Notably, the maiden voyage of VIVA ENJOY is a notable highlight in the upcoming year's offerings.

The 2024 catalog reveals an assortment of captivating land tours and excursions that align with the diverse range of trips available. Andrea Kruse, the Chief Operating Officer of VIVA Cruises, emphasized the introduction of both fresh itineraries and immersive experiences for the year ahead. The highly anticipated debut of VIVA ENJOY further bolsters VIVA Cruises' fleet, which includes three ships that operate year-round, even during the traditionally quieter months of January, February, and March.

In 2024, VIVA maintains its commitment to offering flexibility to its global clientele. Travelers can select from a wide spectrum of voyages and departure ports, each tailored to create distinctive experiences. For instance, VIVA ONE will predominantly traverse the Rhine between Dusseldorf and destinations in the Netherlands and Belgium. On the other hand, VIVA TIARA will offer an array of inner-German journeys starting and concluding in Frankfurt and Koblenz, incorporating sought-after four-night urban escapades.

VIVA TWO, the second vessel in the fleet, will embark on Danube cruises departing from or arriving at Passau and Vienna. Meanwhile, VIVA VOYAGE and VIVA GLORIA will explore a diverse range of itineraries in France. Notably, the 2024 program introduces new 8-day routes from Dusseldorf to Antwerp, offered aboard VIVA MOMENTS.

A prominent highlight of the 2024 agenda is VIVA ENJOY's maiden voyage - a 12-night voyage leaving from Frankfurt on September 22nd. The itinerary visits popular port cities in Germany (Wertheim, Wurzburg, Nuremberg, Passau) and in Austria - Linz, and Vienna (debarkation). Following her inaugural journey, VIVA ENJOY will continue her explorations with 8-day Danube voyages ("Charming Danube" itinerary roundtrip from Vienna), with subsequent "Advent Magic" (between Nuremberg and Vianna) and Christmas-themed voyages in October and November.

All of VIVA Cruises' meticulously crafted itineraries come complete with the renowned VIVA All-Inclusive package, which encompasses a range of amenities including snacks, full board, premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, a well-stocked minibar, luxury beauty products by Rituals, Wi-Fi access, and all gratuities and tips.
