Riviera River Cruises has added an onboard credit of up to $486 per cabin on its European river cruises to its Wave Season promotion. Onboard credit is available for new bookings made through Feb. 28, 2021. Previous Wave Season promotions have also been extended through Jan. 31. These include a $500 discount on cabins and $250 gift card for travel advisors for retail bookings, and a free sixth cabin after five cabins are booked as part of a group.
“We’ve seen great interest in our Wave Season promotions so far, so are extending them and introducing a new one for onboard credit,” said Marilyn Conroy, Riviera River Cruises’ executive vice president sales and marketing North America, in a statement. “Everybody enjoys having a little extra to spend during their cruise – onboard credit can be used to pay for everything from drinks in the lounge and restaurants to massages in the spa, souvenirs from the boutique or even gratuities. At Riviera, we hope you’ll think of us first when booking your clients on European river cruises as we’re always supportive of the travel agency community, working exclusively with advisors.”
