Two New Build Ships Join VIVA Fleet

Two new ships are to join a leading river cruise specialist’s fleet in 2022.

VIVA Cruises will be running a total of 238 departures across seven ships for the 2022 season.

The first new ship, VIVA ONE, will set sail from the port of Düsseldorf in April 2022, offering a variety of itineraries on the Rhine and Moselle rivers.

VIVA ONE, whose name refers to being the very first ship built by the line, will feature a modern design in blue tones, two restaurants, a spacious sun deck, and a spa and wellness area. The ship will boast 88 cabins for a maximum of 176 guests.

It is also the first ship in the fleet to use state-of-the-art hybrid technology - sulphur-free GTL (Gas to Liquid) fuel - which significantly reduces CO² consumption and emissions.

VIVA TWO, the company’s second new build ship, which will complement the fleet primarily on the Danube river from July 2022. It features 95 cabins.
The 2022 programme will be completed by permanent members of the fleet, VIVA TIARA and VIVA MOMENTS. The former will be running a variety of 7- and 16-night itineraries along the Danube river; while VIVA MOMENTS will be sailing on seven-night itineraries on the Rhine as well as 4-night trips focused on wellness and relaxation (January – March 2022). Finally, SWISS DIAMOND, with capacity for 123 passengers, will continue running its popular itineraries along the Baltic Coast.

VIVA Cruises will offer a total of 238 departures across seven ships throughout 2022. Special discounts for families are also available in all 2022 departures. Children up to the age of three can travel for free in their parents’ cabin; a 50% discount will be applied to children between four and 10 years old; and 30% discount to those between 11 and 15 years old.
