    Since they went AI on the Marella ocean they are squeezing the prices up.
    The river should be OK.

    TUI cruises have OK prices and products Germany is the main market.

      Heard that they may be using much older ships than the current main river companies. We're going in June with Riviera Travel for 2nd time and they are very competitively priced with great modern ships.

    Think that my previous comment may not be entirely accurate on further investigation and my informant (a TUI employee) may have been spinning me a line


      The 3 ships and itineraries are on the web site

      From £900pppw(cruise only) many are £1,100-£1,300 some up to £2k with flights.
      AI option £100pppw
      £120pp shorex credit.


        I refreshed my TUI account marketing preferences yesterday and today I got a mini brochure in the post for the river cruises and some Tours that TUI do.

        The cheapest in the brochure(22/3/19) is a 29 March 2020 Bavarian Discovery 7n/8days inc flights and transfers £1099 for a superior cabin, on line this is now £1298.

        this is the full blurb( drinks with meals included that probably explains why the AI was cheap).
        Our river cruises combine standout service and culture-packed excursions with nightly entertainment and a choice of restaurants and lounges. All our ships are adults only, and there’s a maximum of 155 guests onboard at any time, so you can be sure that you’ll have your own space. It’s not just the cruise that’s included with your package, either – your flights, transfers, three meals with drinks per day, your tips, and your luggage allowance all come as standard. Plus, you’ll get £120 of excursion credit per person, to use towards our range of tours.
