FAIRFIELD, CT — Riviera River Cruises is offering Wave Season savings worth up to US$1,500 per cabin or suite on European river cruises aboard its ships for bookings made through March 31.
Discounts are available on most Riviera cruises in 2020.
Agents can find information about the discounts plus 2020 itineraries, ships and pricing in Riviera River Cruises’ recently updated catalogue or through the agency portal at rivierarivercruises.com.
“With the majority of Riviera’s cruises on sale for Wave Season, now is the perfect time to book a 2020 holiday on Europe’s rivers and waterways,” says Marilyn Conroy, Riviera River Cruises’ Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing North America.
“We’re also delighted that we can now offer travel advisors the opportunity to book flights and hotels for clients, allowing them to complete trip arrangements in their entirety. At Riviera, we’re the only river cruise line that is 100% committed to the travel agency community – rather than offer direct bookings to consumers and competing with you, we recognize that you know your clients best and prefer to work alongside you.”
Earlier this month Riviera announced it is now accepting bookings for its European river cruises only from travel agents. Consumers who contact Riviera directly will be referred to their agent to book their river cruise; those who don’t already have an agent will be referred to the nearest Riviera-preferred advisor.
Available discounts include up to $1,500 on all 15-day cruises, up to $1,000 on most eight-day cruises and up to $500 on select cruises shorter than eight days. All discounts are per cabin or suite and based on double occupancy.
