The expanded programme now features five additional German Christmas market sailings
Tui River Cruises has added seven more festive sailings to its winter 2023-24 range thanks to strong demand.
The cruise line said the extra itineraries follow “strong results”, with bookings up more than 30% year-on-year.
This figure is based on the number of passengers that have booked in total for winter 2023 to date, compared to this time last year for winter 2022 sales.
The expanded programme now features five additional Christmas market sailings on Tui Skyla, with five-night itineraries sailing from Mainz, a German city on the Rhine River known for its Old Town of half-timbered houses and medieval market squares.
The company has also added two seven-night sailings on Tui Skyla covering Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve in 2023.
Tui's Chris Hackney said: “We’re seeing strong demand from customers, with bookings increasing by 30% compared to last year, and we’ve responded to this appetite by increasing our offerings. These itineraries feature stops at fairytale cities and bustling Christmas markets.”
There are three adult-only ships in the Tui River Cruises fleet: Tui Isla, Tui Skyla and Tui Maya.
