FORT LAUDERDALE — Riviera River Cruises is now a preferred supplier for Ensemble Travel Group.
“We’re delighted to partner with Ensemble as it is one of the most recognized and respected agency groups in the U.S. and Canada,” said Marilyn Conroy, Riviera River Cruises’ Vice President Sales and Marketing North America.
“At Riviera, we’ve been actively marketing in North America for a little over five years, and in that time we’ve been dedicated to the travel advisor community here. We don’t market directly to consumers unless it’s in tandem with our partners, and any direct booking inquiries we receive are passed along to preferred advisors at commission,” she added.
Based in the United Kingdom, Riviera River Cruises, which has been operating for 39 years, offers 22 itineraries on 10 European rivers throughout the year, including departures for solo travellers with no single supplement, as well as holiday season cruises. Its fleet of 12 ships is one of the youngest in Europe, with each ship featuring spacious cabins and suites and facilities like a fitness centre, sauna, massage room, salon and a plunge pool or hot tub, plus complimentary Wi-Fi.
Dining on board ranges from breakfasts to four-course dinners in the main restaurant, as well as a more casual restaurant and complimentary room service for breakfast. Unlimited house wine, draught beer, soft drinks and juices are available at lunch and dinner. From 6 p.m. to midnight, guests can also enjoy unlimited cocktails, mocktails, house spirits, mixers and more. Coffee and tea are available in-cabin or at a 24-hour self-service station.
Off board, Riviera includes daily excursions led by knowledgeable local guides, but also leaves time for guests to explore destinations on their own. Guests can make use of complimentary bicycles or arrange for additional activities on an at-cost basis through the ship’s concierge.
Riviera also offers cruises along Croatia’s Dalmatian coast aboard six 38-passenger yachts.
