Springtime Charms At Half the Price
River-Cruise Bargains from Award-Winning Tour Operator
When The Water Rat enthusiastically declared, in Kenneth Grahame’s timeless classic The Wind in the Willows, that “there is NOTHING – – absolutely nothing – – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats”, he probably didn’t have anything more in mind than an afternoon aboard a rowing skiff on a Berkshire stretch of the Thames. We’d love to think that he would enjoy river cruises too.
There are very few holidays as relaxing and enjoyable as those spent lazily drifting through some of Europe’s finest scenery, with nothing more strenuous to look forward to than watching the world slip by, strolling around the next idyllic riverside port, sitting down to a delicious lunch, or enjoying a nightcap in the lounge before retiring to your cabin. And now this can be experienced as part of an irresistible Buy-One-Get-One-Half-Price river cruise offer, from award-winning tour operator Newmarket Holidays.
Join your choice of exclusively chartered ships – intimate Olympia or slightly larger Sound of Music – and discover the Dutch countryside ablaze with springtime colour, enjoy the delights of a ‘Blue Riband’ Rhine cruise all the way up river to Switzerland, and get to know the riverside towns and cities that dot the river’s scenic shores on a ‘Jewels of the Rhine’ cruise.
Whichever cruise itinerary or ship you plump for, you are assured of the warmest of welcomes from a friendly crew and Newmarket Holidays cruise manager, who will look after you every step of the way. Comfortable cabins, delicious meals served in delightful surroundings, spacious lounges with panoramic windows to take in the scenery without stirring from a comfy chair, and top-sides observation decks all add to the pleasure.
Organised by Newmarket Holidays, who picked up ‘Best Escorted Tours’ operator accolade at the recent publicly voted British Travel Awards for the fourth year running – the river cruises reflect the high standards and tremendous value for money that have been the hallmark of Newmarket Holidays for nearly 35 years.
Joining the holiday is easy too, with a choice of flights from selected regional airports with onward transfers to the ship, comfortable coach travel from selected pick-up points, the chance to hop aboard a coach near the Channel port of Dover, travel on the Eurostar or even to join the ship at the quayside, if you want to make your own arrangements.
In addition to the Buy-One-Get-One-Half-Price offer on spring departures, Newmarket Holidays offer a full range of sailings throughout Summer 2017.
