Responding to increased demand, Riviera River Cruises will be expanding the hours of operation for its reservation line to accommodate travel advisors in the western United States and Canada in 2020. The expansion comes after Riviera added a regional sales director for western North America earlier this year. Riviera has also promoted Marilyn Conroy to executive vice president sales and marketing North America.
Earlier this year, Riviera expanded its presence in the western United States and Canada with the addition of Barbara Sargent, regional sales director. Starting January 1, 2020, Riviera’s reservation line will operate from 9 a.m. Eastern Time/6 a.m. Pacific Time to 8 p.m. Eastern Time/5 p.m. Pacific Time. Riviera’s reservation team is led by Chris Barker and also includes Merle Twigg, Ryan McVinnie and Suzanne Williams.
Conroy is a travel industry veteran who joined Riviera in late 2018 as vice president sales and marketing, Riviera River Cruises said. She has more than four decades of experience in cruise line sales and marketing at Silversea Cruises, Crystal Cruises and Cunard Line.
Riviera River Cruises offers 15 itineraries on 10 rivers and waterways, including exclusive departures for solo travelers. It has a fleet of 13 ships, none of which are older than six years.
