River cruise

AROSA

CroisiEurope

Fred. Olsen

A-ROSA’s E-Motion ship, due for delivery in spring 2021, features large family cabins, a kids’ club and a separate kids’ pool. New battery propulsion technology enables emission-free sailing in and out of cities, and air bubble technology reduces fuel consumption. arosa-cruises.com

CroisiEurope offers all-inclusive drinks onboard all European cruises. The operator is expanding its worldwide river cruise programme in 2020 to include more exotic itineraries such as the Ganges in India and the Chobe in Africa. Clients can also cruise on a canal barge. croisieuroperivercruises.com

As most of its passengers are from the UK, Fred. Olsen prides itself on offering a home away from home feel. The operator is looking to add Luxembourg on the Moselle to its portfolio and is setting up Global Distribution System for the Amazon and the Nile. fredolsencruises.com
