Riviera on show at C360
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.
