Riviera River Cruises will launch two new ships this spring, and to celebrate the company will award a complimentary cruise aboard one of them as an incentive to North American travel agents.

In April, the MS William Wordsworth and the MS George Eliot will join Riviera’s fleet of 12 ships, one of the youngest fleets on Europe’s rivers and waterways. The George Eliot’s first departure will be April 4 on the Amsterdam, Kinderdijk & the Dutch Bulbfields itinerary. It will operate primarily on the Rhine River. The William Wordsworth will operate exclusively on the Danube River, departing first on the Blue Danube itinerary April 5.

The North American travel agent who books the most cabins with Riviera between February 1 and March 31 will receive a complimentary cruise for two guests aboard one the new ships.

Additionally, Riviera will award a complimentary seven-night cruise on any itinerary to an agent selected at random from among those who complete the company Travel Agent Academy specialist course between Jan. 1 and March 31, 2019. Having launched eight new ships since 2017, Riviera’s fleet of 12 ships is one of the youngest in Europe.
