For travellers wishing to cast off and see some of the world’s most panoramic waterways, Collette’s river cruises are the idyllic tours.
With an already stunning suite of river cruises, Collette has just announced the launch of two new European river cruises: Timeless France and the new Magical Rhine and Moselle tour. Timeless France will become available in Collette’s collection of river cruises from June 1, 2015, with highlights including The Rhone Valley, Lyon, Avignon, Dijon and Beaune.
Timeless France is the perfect blend of river and land, featuring the picturesque Saône and Rhône Rivers and transporting travellers on a journey through the magnificent regions of France. Exploring the French Riviera, Frankfurt, Burgundy and Provence on the lavish M/S Amadeus Symphony, travellers can indulge in local culinary delights, sample world-class wines and visit Riquewihr, a quaint, storybook village peppered with medieval architecture, pastoral fields and vineyards. Timeless France is a great tour that gives travellers the opportunity to experience a fusion of culture, history, architecture, delicious food and of course, excellent wine!
Mosey down the magical Rhine and Moselle Rivers and soak up the spectacular scenery of the romantic Rhine Valley. Cruising Amsterdam, Cologne, Cochem, Strasbourg and Rüdesheim for seven nights aboard one of the luxurious Lüftner vessels, passengers can enjoy opulent staterooms, live entertainment and fabulous cuisine set against this picturesque backdrop.
The new Magical Rhine and Moselle tour is available for bookings now but due to popular demand will replace the previous Collette Rhine and Moselle Tour in 2016. The new Magical Rhine and Moselle tour features Lüftner’s brand new MS Amadeus Silver II which hosts passengers on a decadent cruise complete with spa and massage facilities, three bars and an on-board hairdresser.
“Demand for river cruising product has seen exponential growth of 32% in the Australian market last year. We are pleased to be able to offer these exciting new products and I am confident that the Australian market will embrace them,’ said Alison Mead, Collette’s Australian Business Manager.
Favourites from the current suite of Collette river cruises include Legendary Waterways of Europe and Springtime Tulip river cruises.
