Gardening expert Charlie Dimmock will join a seven-night cruise departing on April 17 on Spirit of the Rhine. Prices start from £1,649.

A themed Gilbert and Sullivan cruise on the Rhine, which features live music performances, is priced from £1,274.

Each cruise in the programme will have a number of dedicated cabins for solo travellers. The line stressed that single passengers should “book early to secure them as they are always very popular”.

Chief executive Nigel Blanks said: “We know our guests want an exceptional experience and real value for money so the river cruises will move to all-inclusive from 2023.

“We’re introducing back-to-back itineraries with 10% off and discounts starting from 25% off in response to their feedback.

“These are in addition to the complimentary chauffeur service, travel insurance and a range of included excursions we already offer.”
