Dear Vacations To Go Customer,
Riviera River Cruises is one of the UK's
leading river cruise operators. It is known for its personalized
service, highly experienced tour managers and European itineraries that
showcase top sights as well as lesser-known gems. Riviera's vacations
are competitively priced, and the rate that you pay upfront includes all
onboard meals, luxurious stateroom accommodations, bottled water,
coffee, tea, Wi-Fi and expertly guided shore excursions.
Vacations To Go customers can
receive a free drinks package that includes beer, wine and soft drinks during
lunch and dinner. The package normally costs $79 to $299 per person,
depending on the itinerary. Book by December 28.
On every departure, Riviera reserves five cabins for solo travelers,
no single supplement. It also schedules
cruises just for solo travelers.
The Swiss-built ships -- most named after famed British authors -- carry
126 to 175 passengers. Most ships have a pool, fitness room, sauna,
steam room, salon and library. Dining encompasses international
favorites and regional European dishes, and guests will find options
from an early riser's breakfast to midnight snacks. Standard cabins
range from 161 to 183 square feet.
Riviera will launch two new ships in April 2019. The
MS William Wordsworth will carry up to 168 passengers on Danube River
cruises that sail round trip from Budapest. The 132-guest
MS George Eliot will debut on Dutch and Belgian waterways, then move
to primarily cruising the Rhine River.

luxury to oceangoing travel. The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection
will operate three 298-passenger, custom-built vessels in Europe, the
Caribbean and Canada/New England; the first ship will debut in February
2020. Sailings range from seven to 14 nights.
On board, guests can expect a casually elegant atmosphere, exceptional
service and cuisine and beautifully designed suites with private
balconies. Among the onboard dining venues is Aqua, which will offer a
menu designed by a Ritz-Carlton chef who has earned three Michelin
stars, and Talaat Nam, which specializes in Southeast Asian cuisine.
Take in the views from the top-deck Observation Lounge, enjoy an
alfresco massage or try out the water toys at the ship's marina.
Each suite includes the services of a dedicated Personal Assistant who
will take care of the details for a carefree cruise, like making onshore
arrangements or reserving a table in the specialty restaurant.
Among the ports that the Ritz-Carlton Yacht will call at during its
maiden season are Le Marin, the yachting capital of Caribbean island
Martinique; Soller, a town of cobblestone streets tucked amid the olive
groves of Mallorca, Spain; and Rockland, a classic Maine seafront town
known for lobster and boating.
Fares include onboard gratuities, 24-hour in-room dining, beverages in
your suite and throughout the ship and Wi-Fi.
