FORT LAUDERDALE — VIVA Cruises will debut a third new-build ship, Viva Enjoy, set to launch in September 2024.
With a similar design to VIVA Cruises’ second new-build ship, Viva Two, the Viva Enjoy will mainly sail on the Danube from September to December 2024. Itineraries are now open for booking.
Travelweek sailed on Viva Two last month, experiencing VIVA’s unique offerings first-hand on a scenic seven-night Danube sailing.
After the introduction of its first and second new-build ships, Viva One and Viva Two in 2022 and 2023 respectively, VIVA Cruises continues to expand its fleet with another significant milestone in its five-year history. The river cruise brand launched sales to the North American travel market in 2022, backed by its cruise-pioneering parent Scylla.
The river cruise line revealed that the name of its new ship will be Viva Enjoy as a special way to celebrate the company’s motto, ‘Enjoy the Moment.’ The new vessel will set off on its 12-night maiden voyage on Sept. 22, 2024, from Frankfurt to Vienna.
“We have grown very quickly in the last five years, as has our customer base and the demand for cruises on the Danube. Our third new-build ship will give us a wider range of options with more departures from Vienna to accommodate for our international audiences,” says Andrea Kruse, COO of VIVA Cruises.
Viva Enjoy will be the sister ship of the recently launched Viva Two and will be virtually identical in design. Viva Enjoy will feature 95 cabins for 190 passengers; three restaurants; an open-plan lounge; a spacious sun deck and a fitness and wellness area.
Clients can now book Viva Enjoy sailings scheduled to depart from September to December 2024. The new-build ship will mainly sail on the Danube, with frequent departures from Vienna to provide ease of access for international guests.
Viva Enjoy will perform a variety of four-, five- and seven-night itineraries on the Danube, including the seven-night Charming Danube from Vienna to Budapest (from $1,795); and the four-night Cityhopping Danube calling at Budapest and Bratislava (from $795). Guests will also be able to join one of the five-night Advent and Christmas cruises that will visit some of the most beautiful Christmas markets in Bavaria and Austria (from $1,095).
All VIVA Cruises itineraries feature VIVA Cruises’ signature VIVA All-Inclusive product, which includes snacks, full board, high-quality alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, minibar, beauty products from luxury cosmetic brand Rituals, WiFi, and all tips and gratuities.
VIVA Cruises itineraries are commissionable to travel advisors starting at 15% and increasing based on bookings. Cruise programs can be accessed and booked via the VIVA Cruises website at www.viva-cruises.com/en-us/. For additional details or to book, travel advisors can call 1-833-YES-VIVA.
