Riviera River Cruises Set Record Since Entering North American Market
Buoyed by Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Riviera River Cruises in November recorded its best month for North American bookings since entering the market more than five years ago.
Bookings from Black Friday, Nov. 24, through Cyber Monday, Nov. 27, increased 200 percent over 2022, in large part thanks to a $500 per person discount on 2024 and 2025 European river cruises of eight days or more. The discount, as well as a FAM cabin incentive, are available through December.
“Our record bookings last month are a testament to how well received Riviera has been in this market – even with tremendous competition among river cruise lines,” said Marilyn Conroy, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing North America for Riviera River Cruises. “Positive feedback from our agency partners and returning guests is helping to spread the word about the value we offer. And with our November incentives continuing through this month, travel advisors should encourage their clients to book while they’re still available.”
Riviera’s $500 per person discount is available on many 2024 and 2025 river cruises, from popular itineraries like the Blue Danube, the Rhine Cruise to Switzerland and exclusive departures for solo travelers to new offerings like 11-day cruises, a new ship and itinerary on the Douro River, and themed cruises.
Details of the discount:
The $500 per person discount is valid on new bookings of 2024 or 2025 departures from eight to 15 days.
Applies to bookings made through Dec. 31, 2023.
Excludes single-occupancy cabins, group bookings and yacht cruises, and can’t be combined with other offers.
