Viva Cruises is expanding its range in 2021 by resuming Baltic sailings following the restart of European itineraries post lockdown.

Revamped 123-passenger ship Swiss Diamond joins the fleet next year to resume the cruises along the Baltic coast.

Two itineraries from the German Baltic city of Stralsund will run from May to October 2021, with prices starting at €1,395 per person for seven nights all inclusive in a two-bed cabin. 

The German river cruise specialist will deploy MS Treasures and MS Inspire on four-night sailings along the Main and Rhine next summer.

Other itineraries include Danube and Moselle river sailings and six-night departures over the Christmas period between Dusseldorf and Strasbourg.

The year-round sailings by the two ships start in March with cruise-only rates for four-nights starting at €495, rising to €2,695 for a 17-day Danube tour. 

Chief operating officer Andrea Kruse said: “As the new four-night cruises introduced this summer worked out so well, we are very pleased to present these new 2021 itineraries on board MS Treasures and MS Inspire.

“Featuring spacious suites of up to 30 square metres and Viva’s checklist – the health and safety measures introduced in light of Covid-19 – we are really looking forward to welcoming more of our beloved UK guests again.”
