TUI River Cruises Tips, Activities, and Overview
Who goes on TUI River Cruises cruise ships?
The line attracts many people, mostly Brits, familiar with TUI's land-based holidays. In keeping with the general river cruise demographic, a middle-aged and more mature crowd are likely to be attracted to the adults-only river cruises; many of them first-timers who have previously taken holidays with TUI.
The company's customers are generally easy-going and fun-loving, with a focus on value for money rather than luxury.
Do I have to dress up on a TUI River Cruises cruise?
In keeping with river cruising in general, the onboard dress code is casual. There are no formal nights on river cruises, although some passengers like to dress up a bit more for events such as the Gala Dinner, which is held once on sailings over five nights or more.
Is everything free on TUI River Cruises cruises?
Almost. There are a very large number of inclusions over and above most other river cruise lines. Fares will include direct flights from UK airports, an up to 23kg luggage allowance, transfers to and from the ship, all meals, wine, beer and soft drinks at lunch and dinner, Wi-Fi and tips. Bar drinks are not included, but customers can upgrade to all-inclusive.
What are TUI River Cruises’s most popular activities?
