This spring, Riviera River Cruises will welcome two new ships to its fleet and is celebrating by offering two travel advisors a complimentary cruise aboard one of the vessels.

The North American travel advisor who books the most cabins with Riviera now through March 31, 2019 will receive a complimentary cruise for two on either the MS William Wordsworth or the MS George Eliot, both of which are debuting this April. Additionally, Riviera will award a complimentary cruise to an advisor selected at random from among those who complete the Travel Agent Academy specialist course between Jan. 1 and March 31, 2019.

The complimentary cruises can be on any 7-night itinerary aboard one of these vessels departing in 2019. Advisors and their guest will be booked in a double-occupancy cabin on the Emerald Deck and will also receive a complimentary drinks package.

“The addition of the MS William Wordsworth and the MS George Eliot to our fleet this spring will give our guests two more modern, luxurious options for cruising Europe’s rivers,” said Jana Tvedt, Riviera River Cruises’ executive v.p.

The 443-ft. William Wordsworth is an all-suite ship, while the 361-ft. George Eliot is a new, smaller class with cabins and suites. The William Wordsworth includes 88 suites, each measuring at least 183 sq. ft. The vessel can accommodate 167 guests and 44 crew, while the George Eliot’s 70 cabins and suites are a minimum of 161 sq. ft. and can accommodate 132 guests and 36 crew. On both ships, guests will find that the Diamond and Ruby Deck cabins and suites feature floor-to-ceiling sliding-glass windows. Deluxe Balcony Suites on the Diamond Deck of both ships also feature floor-to-ceiling windows plus sliding doors that open onto a small private balcony.

Other amenities include a panoramic observation lounge, a main restaurant, a wellness area, a boutique, and a sun deck. A second, smaller restaurant on both, The Bistro, offers a more casual lunch and dinner experience with an open kitchen and panorama windows that can allow for al fresco dining. The William Wordsworth also has a fitness center and spa.
