At the ITB, the Berlin Tourism Fair, the Stuttgart cruise company nicko cruises presented its new products for the 2024/25 season. We are talking about the expansion of the fleet of river boats, new routes and a new world tour with the comfortable deep-sea ship VASCO DA GAMA.
At this point, we are less interested in the additions to the fleet of river boats or newly added routes on the rivers. We are fascinated by the journeys on the two ocean-going ships WORLD VOYAGER and VASCO DA GAMA and river cruises on the Mississippi with the AMERICAN QUEEN.
What does the WORLD VOYAGER offer in the 2024/25 season?
The expedition ship, which can carry a maximum of 200 passengers, generally calls at small ports that larger ships cannot reach. The ship will demonstrate its versatility in the summer of 2025. In the course of an eight-day Mediterranean voyage, it will travel up the Guadalquivir to the center of Seville. Another spectacular highlight is the passage of the Corinth Canal. Further trips lead to the Greek islands and to Lisbon and Porto, just to name a few destinations. The program also includes a trip on the Thames London. On this voyage, Tower Bridge will open to WORLD VOYAGER.
In addition, the shipping company is offering seven expedition voyages to the Arctic in the 2024/25 season. Guides with a lot of expertise accompany these trips, which last between 11 and 17 days.
The world tour of VASCO DA GAMA
In October 2024, the stylish and comfortable ship will embark on another round-the-world trip. The 148-day journey begins in Crete and ends in Tenerife. The offer also includes a "small trip around the world" lasting 110 days. Since only a few passengers are able to undertake this or the entire journey, the special cruise experience is divided into eight individual stages, which can be booked individually. nicko cruises grants the participants of the two long trips special advantages.

Finally, a "treat" not only for lovers of ocean voyages. The 128 meter long AMERICAN QUEEN offers an unforgettable experience to anyone who feels like traveling the second longest river in the USA, the Mississippi, by ship. The trips run from New Orleans to Memphis. The ship holds up to 417 passengers. It is considered to be the largest paddle steamer ever built.
