Fred. Olsen River Cruises has returned to Europe's waterways with a five-night 'Springtime Dutch Discovery' fly-cruise from Amsterdam and a further 27 fly-cruises on offer this year. 156-guest Brabant will return to the Danube, Moselle, Rhine and Main rivers, with five to 25 night itineraries and an expanded enrichment programme of expert speakers to allow guests to experience the best of each destination.
Keith Norman, River Sales Manager at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines said:
“We enjoyed a successful first year with Brabant in 2018, but this year we stop being 'newcomers' and will stake our place in the river cruise market. Bookings are already up by more than 30% on the same time last year. Our guests can enjoy an expanded enrichment programme with knowledgeable speakers, experts in their fields, who join a number of sailings to enhance the holiday experience. This adds to our immersive programme of shore excursions, led by insightful guides local to various ports of call. "
Experts set to enhance the guest experience on Brabant include: cyclist and travel writer, Andrew Sykes; Hugh Ellwood, with expertise in history and architecture; wine expert Martin Ward and WW2 historian Philip Sanders. They will deliver lectures which they will then build upon by accompanying some tours and providing hands-on advice and guidance to guests.
