TUI Group postponed the launch of TUI River Cruises to 26 November 2020 due to the global pandemic by the Covid-19.

Last year, to strengthen its presence on river cruises, the company announced the purchase of three ships and reported that it would begin its river activity in the summer of 2020 by sailing on European rivers.

The new river boats of the company, coming from the operators Werener Tours and Reiseburo Mittelthurgau Fluss, with capacity for 155 passengers, would begin to sail in 19 different itineraries by the Danube, Rhine and Moselle during summer 2020. Due to the current situation, TUI Group has decided to postpone the launch of TUI River Cruises until the end of November.

TUI Group also announced the cancellation of its sea cruises until 14 May and all Marella Cruises departures until 31 May.
