Fred Olsen has also incorporated plenty of scenic cruising in daylight hours into its itineraries so that guests can make the most of the spectacular scenery on offer at the best time of the day.

Peter Deer, Olsen’s commercial director, said: “These are exciting times, as Brabant will be visiting the wonderful rivers of Europe – the Rhine, Danube, Moselle and Main – as well as pretty towns and big name cities, such as Vienna and Strasbourg, for shopping, music and culture.

“Brabant may be small, but we are proud to have developed a great product for our first year, helping to create new memories for our guests across the spectacular waterways of Europe.”

The inaugural river cruise season will be followed by an expanded programme of 33 departures in 2019.
