Cruiseco & Riviera Travel have collaborated to create a spectacularly unique Fly, Stay & Cruise package deal. With Rivera Travel’s luxurious river cruising vessels and Cruiseco’s unparalleled travelling knowledge, we've picked two absolutely amazing itineraries and seamlessly combined it with the industry’s hottest airfares, private transfers, luxury accommodations and a first class train journey!

Your journey starts in Amsterdam, where you have a full day to explore this majestic city at your leisure, before returning to rest at the five-star Hilton Amsterdam. The following morning after breakfast you will embark the MS Oscar Wilde where the dedicated crew will welcome you aboard and settle you in for your seven night sojourn through Holland and Belgium. You are sure to be captivated by the surrounding beauty throughout this voyage as the Dutch bulbfields will now be in full bloom.

Once the MS Oscar Wilde has moored back into Amsterdam 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 Avignon. Once you have arrived in Avignon a personal chauffeur will be waiting to take you to the Novotel Avignon Nord Hotel, from which you can easily do some exploring of the city, or simply relax and unwind.

The next morning you will embark the MS Lord Byron, where again the crew will introduce themselves to you and ensure that you are made as comfortable as possible before setting off on the next seven night voyage to Lyon. On this journey you will be treated to a vast variety of beautiful sights, as the cruise ventures further north you will gradually see the Mediterranean ambience give way to the culture and style of art and architecture developed during the Renaissance.

After disembarking the MS Lord Byron in Lyon you will be chauffeured to the beautiful Cour des Loges Lyon, a delightfully atmospheric hotel located right in the heart of the historic, cobbled old town. 
You will have two nights here to absorb as much of the authentic French cuisine as you can before reluctantly flying back home to Australia.
