Riviera Travel has announced that the MS Lord Byron is scheduled to sail again on an eight-day Burgundy, River Rhone and Provence river cruise itinerary in 2022. 

Riviera Travel's Lord Byron

Riviera Travel’s MS Lord Byron will sail to some of France’s best locations.

The 140-guest ship, which was originally due to cruise the route in 2021, is now back on sale for 15 cruises from April to October next year.

The sailing will include seven visits and tours, including Lyon, Arles, Avignon and Vienne; wine tasting in Beaune; and excursions to the Ardèche Gorges, Popes’ Palace and the Pont du Gard.

Overall ticket prices include return flights and transfers, with a low deposit option also available for the sailing which starts in Lyon and concludes in Avignon.

The Lord Byron comprises 74 staterooms, including a range of suites and luxury cabins. The ship also has a sun deck, 24-hour self-service station for tea and coffee, a splash pool and putting green. In addition, there is a wellness area with sauna, steam room and hairdressing salon.

Katja Hildebrandt from Riviera Travel said: “We’re delighted to once again offer guests the opportunity to set sail on the stunning Lord Byron. It’s a five-star ship that will visit five-star destinations across the south of France.

“From the lush slopes of France’s winelands, to the sun-baked hills of Provence, to the medieval splendour of Avignon, this promises to be a fascinating river cruise to one of the most picturesque corners of the world.”

Groups of ten or more can book through the dedicated groups department. Covid-19 cancellation protection is included as standard in the booking.
