Extended trips are quite common in the ocean cruise industry, which many different cruise lines offering world cruises that last anything up to 180 nights. However, when it comes to river cruises, itineraries are usually restricted to a maximum of 14 nights. That is with the exception of the latest mammoth tour to be offered by CroisiEurope.
To celebrate their 40th year anniversary, in 2016, the French river cruise operator has joined together a number of their most popular cruises, added in some new ports of call and created a 40-night journey that can take guests from south-west Spain all the way to Romania. You will cruise along twelve different rivers in total and travel through a whopping twelve different European countries.
There will be a mixture of rail, flight and coach transfers to take you between some of the different rivers and you will be able to experience not one but three different CroisiEurope vessels. MS La Belle de Cadix will take you along the Guadalquivir and Guadiana Rivers in Spain, whilst MS Botticelli will guide you along the Seine and MS Gerard Schmitter will show you the romantic Rhine. The other waterways that you will grace during this extended European river cruise include the Danube, Main and France’s beautiful Loire River.
Along with certain drink options and all meals served on board, your cruise fare will include a number of exciting excursions along the way. Amongst these is the chance to taste some world class wines in Saint Emilion, look around the Palace of Versailles and tour some of Amsterdam’s iconic canals. Also, due to the fact that it is a celebration after all, there will be lots more happening on board. Gala dinners, prizes, gifts, surprises and even a red carpet greeting will all add to the spectacle, whilst a professional photographer will be on hand to capture those special moments that you won’t want to forget.
