Riviera Travel has announced that the popular historian, writer and broadcaster Lucy Worsley will be joining its Rhine Cruise to Switzerland, departing on October 19 on the five-star MS Jane Austen.

Lucy has written a new book aptly titled ‘Jane Austen at Home’, exploring the author's life through the places which meant the most to her. The line's guests will receive a complimentary copy of the book, which Lucy will autograph during an exclusive book signing in the afternoon on board the ship. Later after dinner, guests can join her once again for an insightful talk on Jane Austen.

All meals are included on board, as well as excursions and tours to destinations along the river, including medieval Koblenz, the romantic town of Rüdesheim and the lakeside town of Lucerne, with a dedicated tour manager. Alternatively, guests can relax on board and admire the changing views from the comfort of their suite.

The Rhine Cruise to Switzerland starts from £1,199 per person for eight days, including Eurostar travel from London St Pancras to Brussels (with coach transport to Cologne) or flights from selected regional airports to Cologne or Düsseldorf.
