The newly inaugurated Riverside Debussy will kick off her second year of service on April 2, 2024, with a 7-night season opening voyage during the prime of tulip-blooming season in the picturesque Dutch countryside. Guests will cruise roundtrip from Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and visit Arnhem, Nijmegen, Antwerp, Gent, Middleburg, Veere, Dordrecht, and Rotterdam. Anthophiles have another chance to catch Tulip Time with the April 23 departure.

Riverside Ravel and Riverside Mozart will commence their new 2025 voyages on April 10 and April 17. Riverside Ravel will cruise a 3-night Rhone Sampler itinerary from Lyon to Avignon, with visits to Viviers, Tarascon, and Arles. Riverside Mozart will navigate guests on an Easter voyage on the Danube River from Passau, Germany, to Budapest, Hungary. Guests on this itinerary will visit Ybbs, Melk, and Bratislava, Slovakia, and observe Easter Sunday in Vienna, Austria.

German Heritage on the Rhine, Main, and Moselle Rivers

Riverside Debussy unveils Medieval castles, quaint and charming towns, and dramatic wine valleys along the Rhine, Main, and Moselle rivers throughout the spring and summer seasons. Seven-night itineraries alternate departures from Amsterdam and Basel, Switzerland, and feature some of the most historic cities, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Rhine Gorge with its highest concentration of picturesque castles, and the wine valleys of the Middle Rhine.

In mid-September, Riverside Debussy combines the Rhine and Main Rivers on a 7-night voyage from Amsterdam to Nuremberg. On this voyage, guests will include a stretch of the 106-mile Main-Danube Canal in Bavaria. A return voyage in late October brings Riverside Debussy back to Amsterdam.

Travelers can also choose shorter, 3—to 6-night voyages throughout the year that spotlight the Netherlands, the Moselle River’s wine valley, or the Upper Rhine Valley. These cruises depart from Amsterdam, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Trier, and Basel, Switzerland.

Danube Discoveries

Riverside Mozart will cruise a variety of 3-—to 7-night itineraries, mostly between Passau and Budapest, bringing guests to captivating Bavarian, Austrian, Slovakian, and Hungarian cities and towns. Many of these voyages include cruising or stopping in Austria’s historic and picturesque Wachau Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In late May, Riverside Mozart embarks on two 3-night segments on the Lower Danube from Budapest to the Iron Gates in Serbia. Travelers can combine the subsequent, 4-night return itinerary back to Budapest to combine all three itineraries into a 7-night roundtrip voyage and do not repeat stops.

Riverside Debussy will also cruise the Danube River in the autumn. A 7-night voyage brings guests on a special itinerary from Nuremberg to Budapest, where she then ventures to the lesser-traveled Lower Danube on four voyages of 3- and 4-night itineraries. Guests will marvel at the natural majesty of Europe’s deepest and longest gorge flanked by the Carpathian Mountains and the Balkan Hills; medieval fortresses and castles from the Roman, Ottoman, and Habsburg empires; and cultures and cities once veiled behind the Iron Curtain. Departure cities also include Belgrade, Serbia, and Giurgiu, Romania. Travelers can combine these itineraries for a 15-night Lower-Danube adventure, cruising roundtrip from Budapest, or cross Europe from the Black Sea to the North Sea on a 23-night grand voyage, departing October 7 from Giurgiu to Amsterdam.

South of France and Burgundy Sojourns

Riverside Ravel offers 4-, 5- and 7-night itineraries on France’s Rhône River between Lyon and Avignon, with visits at Arles, Viviers, Tain L’Hermitage, and Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Tarascon, Port St. Louis and Vienne. Riverside Ravel also ventures up the Saone River on eight summer and autumn cruises that visit the Côte Chalonnaise and Maconnais wine regions of Burgundy. These cruises stop at Macon, with tour options to Chalon and Tournus, as well as destinations on the Rhône River. Riverside Ravel concludes her 2025 year with a 4-night itinerary, departing on November 21 from Lyon to Avignon.

Christmas Markets and Festive Getaways

In late November, Riverside Mozart cruises 3—and 4-night Christmas Markets itineraries along the Danube, departing from Vienna, Passau, and Budapest. Travelers can choose a six-night Christmas cruise departing Vienna on December 20 and celebrating Christmas Eve in Passau, or ring in the New Year in Bratislava and enjoy New Year’s Day with an overnight in Vienna on a 7-night voyage departing December 26.

Riverside Debussy also offers bustling German Christmas Markets on a variety of 3-night itineraries that take guests throughout Germany along the Rhine, Main, and Moselle rivers. The ship concludes 2025 with a 10-night Christmas and New Year cruise from Basel to Amsterdam. Guests will observe Christmas Eve in Strasbourg and ring in the New Year with two nights in Amsterdam.
