VIVA Cruises launches new ships and itineraries

After a successful restart of the European routes, river cruise specialist, VIVA Cruises, is further expanding its cruise offering for 2021. Next year, SWISS DIAMOND will join the VIVA Cruises family and take on the Baltic itineraries.

The addition of SWISS DIAMOND and the re-launch of VIVA Cruises‘ itineraries along the Baltic coast are just a few highlights of the River Specialist’s 2021 program.


SWISS DIAMOND, with a capacity of 123 passengers, was recently completely renovated and now has a fresh and modern look. On board the elegant SWISS DIAMOND you can discover the popular Baltic region from the German city of Stralsund.

On board SWISS DIAMOND you can enjoy the beautiful landscape from the elegant lounge with panorama bar or from the whirlpool on the spacious sun deck. After a day of exploring, the sauna with solarium offers maximum relaxation before enjoying a delicious meal. The ship also features a boutique for small purchases.

All cabins on the SWISS DIAMOND are outside cabins and feature panoramic windows to bring the outside inside. In addition, the rooms have a television, radio, minibar, safe, hairdryer, air conditioning, shower and toilet. All public areas on board are air-conditioned.


MS TREASURES and MS INSPIRE, two of the most popular ships in the VIVA Cruises fleet, will start the 2021 season at the end of March. During the summer of 2021, they will offer four-night cruises along the Main and Rhine. One of the highlights of the River Main are the picturesque German cities of Wertheim and Würzbur. If you are sailing on the Rhine, you can visit Strasbourg via Mannhein.

In addition, there are of course also the classic Danube routes with a succession of visits to beautiful cities such as Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava. During the winter period, the “Rhine-Winter-Fairytale-Cruise” is back. This is a six-day cruise between Düsseldorf and Strasbourg that ensures you will leave the cruise in a festive mood.
