Riviera River Cruises to Promote New Ships With Agent Incentive

MS Robert Burns - Riviera River Cruises

Riviera River Cruises is offering a special travel agent incentive to celebrate the launch of its two newest ships in April, the MS William Wordsworth and the MS George Eliot. The North American travel agent who books the most cabins with Riviera in February and March will receive a complimentary cruise for two guests aboard one of the new ships.

Details of the incentive:

  • Complimentary cruise for two will be awarded to the North American travel agent with the most cabins booked on Riviera river cruises departing in 2019
  • New bookings made between February 1 and March 31, 2019, are eligible
  • Complimentary cruise includes one double-occupancy cabin on the Emerald Deck and a complimentary drinks package
  • Cruise can be on any seven-night itinerary aboard the MS William Wordsworth or MS George Eliot in 2019, depending on availability   
  • Not eligible on group bookings. Other terms and conditions apply. 

Additionally, Riviera will award a complimentary seven-night cruise on any itinerary to an agent selected at random from among those who complete the Travel Agent Academy specialist course between January 1 and March 31, 2019.

Having launched eight new ships, including the George Eliot and William Wordsworth, since 2017, Riviera’s fleet of 12 ships is one of the youngest in Europe.

The George Eliot’s first departure will be April 4 on the Amsterdam, Kinderdijk & the Dutch Bulbfields itinerary. It will operate primarily on the Rhine River. The William Wordsworth will operate exclusively on the Danube River, departing first on the Blue Danube itinerary April 5.

The 443-foot William Wordsworth is an all-suite ship, while the 361-foot George Eliot is a new, smaller class with cabins and suites. Both ships incorporate sustainable hardwoods, brass, copper, glass, and wrought iron into their designs. Amenities include a panoramic observation lounge, main restaurant, wellness area, boutique and a sun deck. A second, smaller restaurant on both, The Bistro, offers a more casual lunch and dinner experience with an open kitchen and panorama windows that can allow for al fresco dining. The William Wordsworth also has a fitness center and spa.

The William Wordsworth’s 88 suites are a minimum of 183 square feet. It can accommodate 167 guests and 44 crew. Diamond and Ruby Deck suites bring the French balcony inside with views from floor-to-ceiling sliding-glass windows. Deluxe Balcony Suites on the Diamond Deck have floor-to-ceiling windows plus sliding doors that open onto a small private balcony.

The George Eliot’s 70 cabins and suites are a minimum of 161 square feet. Purposely built smaller than Riviera’s long ships, it can accommodate 132 guests and 36 crew, making it ideal for charter groups. Diamond and Ruby Deck cabins and suites also have floor-to-ceiling sliding-glass windows, while Deluxe Balcony Suites on the Diamond Deck have floor-to-ceiling windows plus sliding doors that open onto a small private balcony.

Riviera offers 13 itineraries on nine rivers and waterways, including new exclusive departures for solo travelers next year. For more information about Riviera River Cruises, visit https://www.rivierarivercruises.com or call 888-838-8820.
