Viva Cruises launches Douro river cruises

Thursday, 25 Jan, 2024 0

European river cruise specialist VIVA Cruises will sail Douro river cruises for the first time as part of its 2025 cruise programme.

It launched its 2025 brochure with 64 itineraries along Europe’s most popular rivers; with several new ports of call.

A highlight is the brand new Douro cruises on board new built ship, Porto Mirante.

All 2025 itineraries are available to book online.

Andrea Kruse, CEO of VIVA Cruises, said: “We recorded increased demand last year, particularly from international markets. We want to meet this demand in the coming year with new departure and landing ports.”

Next year, Porto Mirante will open up a new cruising era for VIVA Cruises.

The brand new Douro ship will be christened in May this year, and sail Douro river cruises from May 2025.

The new built ship will then offer trips to and from Porto.

VIVA Cruises has also added several new ports of call to the 2025 programme.

These include Lelystad, Middelburg and Bruinisse in the Netherlands; the town of Braubach in Germany; and Leverinho, Regua, Vega Terron and Pinhão in Portugal.

Following increased demand for short cruises it will open the 2025 season in January with cruses on three ships: Viva One, Viva Two and Viva Enjoy.

The Danube river will once again be served by Viva Two.

Guests can now book five-night city trips to and from Passau (Germany) as well as five-night crime themed cruises.

In addition to the 11- and 15-night voyages, the ship will also offer more departures from Vienna next year in response to the increased demand.

Longer trips on the Rhône will be added in the future, sailing on Viva Voyage from Arles to Lyon, with an overnight stay in Lyon.
