Shearings has also added two itineraries onboard the 4-star Serenade 2, including a 12-day Danube Symphony cruise and a 10-day Flavours of the Danube cruise which explores the river’s culinary delights.
Jane Atkins, managing director at Shearings Holidays said: “To ensure that our customers have the very best choice of river cruises in 2018, we have updated the programme with an enticing selection of tailor made itineraries and added cruising on-board the premium A-Rosa Cruises, to give them more reasons to choose Shearings.

Other additions on existing chartered ships include A Taste of the Rhine onboard the MPS Da Vinci, Strasbourg & Rhine Highlights onboard the Virginia and Splendours of the Danube onboard the Esmeralda.
There are also new sailings on partner cruises, with a choice of rivers such as Douro, Po, Guadiana, Guadalquivir and Dordogne Rivers or the Adriatic Coast.
