River cruising specialist APT has introduced ‘no fly’ options for two of its European cruises, as part of a commitment to sustainable travel. The cruises are departing in 2021 and 2022 respectively. The company specialist will be actively promoting during Earth Month (April) for those customers eager to book more environmentally friendly travel options.
No fly departures are set to operate on September 29 this year, as well as March 23 and November 2 next year. In 2022, APT will offer an eight-day Travelmarvel Rhine & Moselle Christmas Markets cruise from Amsterdam to Basel. The itinerary will sail on a new Travelmarvel Contemporary ship, which launch towards the end of 2021. Guests will enjoy Strasbourg, the capital of Alsace, discover Cochem in the Moselle Valley and glide along Amsterdam’s network of canals. Departures will operate on December 16 and 23 next year.
Eurostar travel to Amsterdam from London St Pancras will be available within the price including return and each place on the trips will create 80 per cent less greenhouse gas emissions than travelling on the equivalent short-haul flight (the Eurostar producing 10.7kg CO2e, compared to 63.3kg CO2e by plane). The first trip, a 15-day Western Front Explorer cruise, begins and ends in Amsterdam, and includes a visit to the 17th-century Chateau Neercanne, where guests can delve into World War I history as they explore the battlefields, shrines and memorials found along the front.
