FAIRFIELD, CT — Riviera River Cruises is gifting travellers this holiday season with huge savings of up to US$1,500 per cabin or suite.
Bookings made through Dec. 31, 2019 with a $400 non-refundable deposit, for all 15-day European river cruises in 2020, are eligible for discounts. Savings of up to $1,000 on most eight-day cruises and up to $500 on select cruises shorter than eight days are also available. All discounts are per cabin or suite and based on double occupancy.
Moreover, Riviera is making it easier to gift a river cruise this holiday season with flexible changes to bookings. Customers can reserve a cruise for a family member or friend, and if a different departure date or itinerary is desired by the recipient, Riviera will transfer the deposit accordingly.
“We’re thrilled to offer these discounts to guests booking 2020 river cruises throughout the holiday season,” said Marilyn Conroy, Riviera River Cruises’ Vice President Sales and Marketing North America. “As always with Riviera, you’ll be able to enjoy Europe’s iconic waterways and fascinating cities from one of our five-star ships at an exceptional value. And if you’d like to give the gift of a cruise to a loved one or friend, we’re making it easy to arrange a trip that pleases.”
