CroisiEurope is adding a fourth ship to its Rhone River fleet next year, a representative for the cruise line tells Travel Agent. Further details on the new vessel will be announced in the coming weeks.

CroisiEurope will offer three itineraries of six, seven and eight days in length on France’s Rhone River next year. The seven-day program will be all-new, the cruise line said, while the six- and eight-day cruises will be existing itineraries with departure dates that will use the new ship.

Currently CroisiEurope operates three ships on the Rhone: the MS Camargue, the MS Van Gogh and the MS Mistral. The MS Camargue underwent a complete renovation in 2015 that added more cabin space and a brighter design palette, while the MS Van Gogh was completely renovated just this year.

Also earlier this year, CroisiEurope launched the redesigned MS Renoir on the Seine River, operating itineraries between Paris and Honfleur, and the MS Elbe Princesse II, a newbuild ship on the Elbe and Vltava Rivers between Berlin and Prague. Next year, the company will also add another new ship, the MS Amalia Rodrigues, on the Douro River, bringing its fleet in that area to six.

Outside of Europe, this year CroisiEurope added a newly redesigned Southern Africa water and land program onboard the new RV African Dream along Lake Kariba.
