Tui has pushed back the first sailings of its Tui River Cruises until the end of June.
The new three-ship adult-only river line was originally due to launch last summer, but has been delayed in setting sail due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Its first customer sailing will now be onboard Tui Skyla on June 28, 2021, sailing from Budapest.
Tui Maya’s first customer sailing will depart Budapest on July 2, 2021.
All affected customers will be contacted and can amend for no cost if they have an existing booking due to depart between May 31 and June 27, 2021.
Tui has also offered a price match on a like-for-like basis if customers move their booking to later in summer 2021.
Some customers with existing river cruise bookings can amend fee-free to any holiday that’s on sale up to 21 days before departure. They are those with new bookings made between October 22, 2020, and February 7, 2021, with a departure date before October 31, 2021 – or those with bookings made before July 22, 2020, to travel before October 31, 2021.
Tui-owned ocean line Marella Cruises postponed its resumption to June 30 last week.
