Dream Vacations, CruiseOne and Cruises Inc. just hosted their first-ever river cruise summit on a weeklong AmaWaterways cruise along the Danube River. The companies chartered the AmaLea to bring approximately 150 travel agents on a weeklong training during a cruise from Budapest, Hungary, to Vilshofen, Germany

From guided biking and city tours to wine tastings and local entertainment, attendees experienced all the highlights of a river cruise. They also sat in on presentations from Scenic Cruises and Avalon Waterways, received a sneak preview tour of the AmaMagna prior to its deployment, and they had the opportunity for a dinner and tour aboard a Crystal River Cruise. Attendees also raised $2,100 for Make-A-Wish, which grants wishes of children with critical illnesses, by participating in a sightseeing fundraising walk through Bratislava.

In 2018, river cruise sales were up double-digits as a result of the increased marketing efforts of travel agents with Dream Vacations, CruiseOne and Cruises Inc., the companies said. In addition to providing them with dedicated river cruise-themed direct mail pieces and emails, it is also featured in the luxury brochure, on websites and in the free Automated Social Media Program.
