APT has released its range of European river cruises for 2022 with prices held at 2021 rates.

The luxury cruises also include ‘Covid Flexible Booking Cover’ and a 20% discount on travel insurance.

Paul Melinis, UK managing director, said the early launch was prompted by demand from customers and the fact that there is limited availability for 2021 because passengers have moved their holiday plans from 2020 to next year.

“We’re delighted to be releasing our 2022 collection early,” he said.

“This early release will offer guests the opportunity to plan ahead and book in their future river cruises, giving them plenty to look forward to.”

The operator is also highlighting its enhanced health and safety protocols to encourage passengers to book with confidence.

The holidays on offer include APT’s most popular itinerary: the 14-day Magnificent Europe cruise, from Amsterdam to Budapest along the Danube river.

It costs from £2,995 on a twin-share basis, departing March 7, 2022.

All APT luxury itineraries feature private transfers between the clients’ home and the airport/station, onboard meals and drinks, guided tours and sightseeing excursions, overseas transfers, luggage porterage, port charges, taxes and tipping.
