Riviera on show at C360

Cruise Weekly - - News -

RIVIERA Travel was one of the ex­hibitors at last Fri’s Cruise360 con­fer­ence in Syd­ney, with the mar­ket new­comer’s Aus­tralian sales man­ager Thomas Mor­gan and in­ter­na­tional sales ad­min­is­tra­tor Gina Squir­rell

( pic­tured) both vis­it­ing from the com­pany’s UK base.

Next year Riviera will carry a record 47,000 pas­sen­gers across 327 sail­ings on 12 river ships and 14 itin­er­ar­ies.

The com­pany claims its fives­tar shore-tour-in­clu­sive cruises across Europe are priced at “around 50% lower than river com­pa­nies more es­tab­lished in Aus­tralia”.

Riviera has also launched a new ded­i­cated lo­cal web­site at

www.riv­ier­a­travel.com.au with Aus­tralian dollar fares and a vir­tual real­ity tour of its Thomas

Hardy ves­sel, launched in 2017. The com­pany has a strong re­la­tion­ship with agents, with all of its lo­cal book­ings made via the trade and dis­tri­bu­tion han­dled lo­cally by whole­salers Cruiseco and Cruise Trav­eller.

Fares for 2019 lead in at $2,079ppts for an eight day Danube River voy­age.
