Together, Bhavna Mistry and Boyana Ahmetovic have more than 25 years of experience in the travel industry.

Riviera is also extending an additional $500 per cabin discount on new bookings made this month, for a total savings of up to $3,000 per cabin, as well as offering travel advisors a $100 gift card per cabin booked.

“We’re excited to welcome Bhavna and Boyana to our team and look forward to them establishing relationships with travel advisors across the continent,” said Marilyn Conroy, Riviera River Cruises’ Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing North America. “We’re also extending an additional $500 per cabin discount through February, meaning travelers can save a total of up to $3,000 on cruises from eight to 15 days, and offering a gift card to advisors for new bookings. At Riviera, we’re 100 percent supportive of our travel advisor partners and are the only river cruise line that doesn’t sell directly to their clients.”

Mistry comes to Riviera River Cruises with 23 years of experience in the travel industry, while Ahmetovic has three years of experience.

Riviera’s North American reservations team accepts bookings only from travel advisors, with a reservation line that’s open from 9 a.m. Eastern/6 a.m. Pacific to 8 p.m. Eastern/5 p.m. Pacific. Consumers who contact Riviera directly are referred to book their river cruise through their own travel advisor or, if they don’t already have one, the booking will be turned over to an advisor near them with whom Riviera has a relationship.

Discounts are available for new bookings made through Feb. 28, 2022. Depending on cabin type and length of itinerary, total savings with additional $500 per cabin discount are up to $3,000 per cabin booked.

Riviera River Cruises offers 20 itineraries on 10 rivers and waterways, including exclusive departures for solo travelers with no single supplement and holiday season cruises. Riviera’s fleet of 12 world-class ships is one of the youngest in Europe, with spacious cabins and suites, and its cruises include fine culinary experiences, from splendid breakfasts to four-course dinners featuring regional and international specialties, as well as expert-led excursions to classic sights and lesser-known places.

Riviera guarantees exceptional value, promising never to add hidden surcharges or fees, and it doesn’t automatically include gratuities or drinks, so the choice is up to guests.
