Pent-up demand for 2022 river cruises claimed

Jamie Loizou, UK managing director, said: “We have seen huge uplift in demand for no-fly options in 2021. Rail access to the continent is quick and easy and with direct trains to many of our departure points, getting to your ship has never been easier.

“Given such strong demand, we felt the time was right to roll out an expanded programme with a wide range of options for our guests to choose from.

“The introduction of our free rail and private transfers promotion ensures it is not only convenient but offers great value for money too.”

The free rail offer is valid on selected departures booked by September 30.
