Fred. Olsen River Cruises has launched its new 2020 programme on the smaller, more intimate Brabant, with 26 tempting itineraries, covering 43 ports of call.
In 2020, Fred. Olsen will be introducing 10 maiden calls on board 156-guest Brabant, in five brand new areas, showcasing the beauty of the Rhine, Moselle, Main and Danube, across six countries.
New for 2020 are maiden sailings into Luxembourg, taking in stunning Grevenmacher and Remich – where few other rivers ships venture – as well as scenic cruises of the Danube Delta, with other inaugural calls to: Trier and Nierstein, in Germany; Cetate, Galați and Dobreta-Turnu Severin, in Romania; Donji Milanovac, in Serbia; Enkhuizen, in The Netherlands; and Vukovar, in Croatia.
Notably, every Fred. Olsen river cruise will incorporate plenty of daytime scenic cruising, so that guests can enjoy some of Europe’s most fantastic scenery – with 14 areas of scheduled scenic cruising included across the itineraries.
Keith Norman, River Sales Manager at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: “We enjoyed a very successful inaugural season on Brabant in 2018, but we recognise that we have to build on this first river cruise programme, and learn from our experiences, in an increasingly competitive market. As such, we have been working hard to create a range of even richer, more immersive itineraries to enable our guests – both existing and new – to make memories to last a lifetime, both on board and ashore.
Brabant guests will also benefit from the introduction of a new enrichment programme in 2020, with almost every sailing featuring a knowledgeable onboard speaker, tailored to the specific itinerary and cruise highlights. Experts in various disciplines will share their knowledge of architecture, wildlife, military history and much more, as Brabant sails to the many places where the speakers have worked, lived or studied, helping to give guests an exceptional, unforgettable holiday.
