It’s one thing to know that travel agent associations are lobbying the government on agents’ behalf. It’s another to actually hear it and see it in action.
VANCOUVER — Emerald Waterways has opened the books on its 2022 European river cruise sailings, with 75% of the full schedule on sale now.
Guests booking any 2022 European river cruise by Dec. 31, 2020 will receive a discount based on length of cruise. Those who book sailings of 15 days or longer will save $3,000 per couple; sailings of eight to 14 days will save $2,500 per couple; and five-day holiday sailings will save $2,000.
Additionally, any guests booking a suite on the Horizon Deck will receive an onboard credit of €150 per person to spend on spa treatments, DiscoverMORE tours or at the bar.
All bookings include a complimentary Deposit Protection Plan, allowing guests to book with confidence in the event plans change, and a reduced deposit of just $250 per person.
According to Emerald, group travel on Europe’s rivers is seeing an upswing in popularity among North Americans. A group with Emerald Waterways can be as small as five cabins, or as large as a full ship charter.
Not only can new groups take advantage of this special offer, but booking a group also allows for one free sailing for every nine paying guests. Plus, with Emerald Waterways’ Group Amenity Program, group organizers may also tailor their guests’ experience with a range of amenities such as onboard credit, drink packages and additional discounts.
Emerald Waterways is also taking bookings for the 2022 Mekong River cruise season, with sailings through Cambodia and Vietnam taking place aboard the line’s newest Star-Ship, Emerald Harmony.
