Riviera River Cruises announces the restart its European river cruises in JUL with departures on Portugal’s Douro River.

The line’s first departure of its eight-day Douro, Porto and Salamanca River Cruise will be on 02JUL aboard the MS Douro Elegance. A four-day Lisbon extension is also available on select departure dates. All guests boarding Riviera ships will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or present a negative test prior to travel.

“We’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be welcoming guests aboard our Douro River cruises this summer,” said Marilyn Conroy, Riviera River Cruises’ Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing North America.

Riviera will continue to evaluate travel guidelines throughout Europe and restart operations on additional rivers when possible.

Riviera guests will benefit from flexible customer care, cancellation, and rebooking policies and health and safety practices.

If a guest isn’t able to travel specifically due to COVID-19, the booking can be transferred to another departure date for free with as little as 24 hours’ notice. If a guest has to cut their holiday short specifically due to COVID-19 and a travel insurer doesn’t cover it, Riviera will provide compensation for the missed portion of the cruise. And if a guest isn’t happy by the second day of their cruise, Riviera will assist in bringing them home with a full refund.

Riviera’s health and safety practices include requiring guests to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or to present a negative test prior to travel. If there’s a cost for a COVID-19 test, Riviera will pay it.
