The UK’s Riviera Travel River Cruises visited Australia recently to mark two years of selling its European river cruises to the Australian market – exclusively through travel agents.
While here, Thomas Morgan and Gina Squirrell, Riviera’s Sales and Marketing executives for Australia, met with the team from its wholesale partner, Cruise Traveller, to brief them on the cruise line’s new 2020 program including a new five-star ship and two new itineraries.
Morgan and Squirrell also visited key travel agents across Australia during their visit to promote Riviera’s expanded 2020 program. In April 2020, Riviera will launch a new 169-guest, five-star river ship named after 14th-century poet Geoffrey Chaucer. The vessel will feature a pool, gym, two restaurants, onboard bicycles and some of the largest staterooms on Europe’s waterways, and will bring Riviera’s fleet size to 13 ships in 2020.
The first of two new cruises is a seven-night Seine, Paris and Normandy round-trip journey from Paris which leads in at $3,229 per person in a twin-share stateroom. There are also a select number of solo cabins reserved exclusively for single travellers which are supplement-free.
The second new cruise for 2020 is a seven-night Vienna, Bohemia and Treasures of the Danube, operating round-trip journey from Vienna and priced from $3,199 per person, twin-share, or solo.
Riviera’s cruises include complimentary shoreside tours as well as free Wi-Fi. Onboard drinks packages are available from $199 per person in 2020. Riviera Travel reserves a selection of cabins on every ship and every cruise for solo-only use, free of single supplements. Solo cabins are subject to availability.
