Featuring 12 different itineraries on five of Europe's rivers -- including the Rhone, Rhine, Moselle, Seine and Danube -- sailings will take place on A-ROSA Donna, A-ROSA Aqua, A-ROSA Viva, A-ROSA Flora and A-ROSA Stella.
Packages with the over-fifty tour specialist include return coach, rail or air travel to the point of departure, with a range of departure points across the U.K. available; all meals and drinks onboard, including alcohol; some shore excursions and Wi-Fi. Gratuities are not included.
Itineraries include the "Paris & The Seine Valley to Normandy" sailing onboard A-ROSA Viva, departing Paris on May 4, and the eight-day "Dutch Delights & Charms of Flanders" sailing on A-ROSA Aqua, departing Nijmegen, Holland, on September 15.
Passengers can expect a dedicated Shearings Holidays Cruise Manager on all sailings, appointed by the tour operator to ensure a direct point of contact is available onboard.
