CroisiEurope has partnered with Classic Vacations, allowing travel agents access to the river cruise company’s portfolio of river, canal and coastal cruises in Europe, Asia and Africa through the tour operator’s Classic Connections program. Agents will earn Classic Vacations’ Royalty Rewards points on the value of the booking and, as an added perk, every reservation booked through the Classic Connections program will receive a complimentary bottle of white wine upon arrival.
This year, CroisiEurope will welcome five new ships to its fleet—the MS Miguel Torga (March) sailing on the Douro River; the MS Symphonie II (March) and the MS France Douce II (May) operating on the Rhine and Danube rivers; the MS Indochine II (September), which will be added to the Mekong in September; and at the end of the year, African Dream on Africa’s Chobe and Zambezi rivers. The itinerary in Africa will be a combined land-and-water itinerary, giving guests three nights on board the African Dream, a 3-night stay in the company’s first ever ground accommodations, plus time in Johannesburg and an overnight excursion to Victoria Falls. Next year, CroisiEurope plans to introduce four additional ships to the fleet, two of which will be remodels of existing ships that will then be re-introduced on the Seine River, as well as on the Rhone and Saone rivers. The others will be sister ships to two existing boats in the fleet—the 45-room Elbe Princesse II traveling between Berlin and Prague and a second ship on the Chobe and Zambezi rivers.
