Riviera Travel & Oceania Cruises


Have you ever had to decide between going on an ocean cruise or a river cruise? Well now you don't have to! With our brand new 'Europe by River and Sea' package deal you can experience the best of both worlds! And we mean the very best. Riviera Travel and Oceania are both world leaders in their respective watery domains!

Our journey starts in Oporto, where you have a full day to explore this majestic city at your leisure, before retiring to rest at your luxury hotel. The following morning after breakfast you will embark the MS Douro Elegance where the dedicated crew will welcome you aboard and settle you in for your seven night sojourn through Portugal and Spain. You will adore the away-from-it-all experience and visit some of Iberia’s most beautiful medieval towns, monasteries and vineyards!

Once the MS Douro Elegance has moored back into Oporto you will be able to enjoy a breakfast on-board before being transferred to the train station where you can settle into your first class seats and enjoy the scenic journey to Lisbon. Once you have arrived in Lisbon a personal chauffeur will be waiting to take you to the Avenida Palace Hotel Lisbon, from which you can easily do some exploring of the city, or simply relax and unwind.

The next morning, after breakfast, you will be chauffeured to the Lisbon's cruise port where you will embark Oceania's MS Riviera. Prepare to be enchanted by the spirit and beauty of Southern Europe, which will be apparent in every port of call on this 10 night summertime journey to Rome. You should also be prepared to unbuckle your belt, as Oceania Cruises are voted to have the world's best cuisine at sea.

After disembarking the MS Riviera in Rome you will be chauffeured to the elegant Empire Palace Hotel Rome, where you can be pampered in luxurious delights, or simply use as your base of operations as you explore this fascinating and ancient city. The following morning you must reluctantly join your chauffer in the hotel lobby to be taken to tour flight back home to Australia. But at least you will have many beautiful memories of this enchanting holiday/
