Shearings Holidays has launched 19 new itineraries and added the MS Princess to its range of six exclusively chartered ships as part of its new 2015 river cruise programme.
Shearings will for the first time offer cruises along the Loire on board the MS Loire Princesse. As well as taking in the sights of the Loire Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the five-night all-inclusive ‘Landscapes and Chateaux of the Loire Valley’ also visits Nantes, Saint Nazaire, Ancenis and Angers. Prices start from £1,199pp.
The Mississippi river will also feature in the programme for the first time, with a cruise sailing from New Orleans to Memphis on board The American Queen, the largest paddlewheel steamboat ever built. The ten-day ‘Mississippi’s Southern Charms’ cruise gives customers the opportunity to explore the history of the Deep South, with prices starting from £2,799pp.
The operator has also extended its range of ‘Inclusive Cruises’ following positive customer feedback, with new itineraries such as the ‘Summer Rhine Valley Inclusive Cruise’, a ten-day inclusive break.
