Here are some things to know:

River Cruise Charters: New Ships, More Inclusive

Avalon Waterways Artistry II cruises rivers of Europe, offering stunning views from suites.

Boutique-style river vessels offer a relaxed and upscale travel experience as they smoothly glide right into the heart of fairy tale towns and exotic cities. Their small size (typically 100-190 passengers), makes them a great charter option in Europe, Asia and South America.

In North America, new river boats transverse the Mississippi, Columbia and Snake rivers, and meetings onboard American-flagged ships may be tax-deductible for US citizens.

Many river cruise lines are introducing newly designed ships to meet the growing demand for premium river travel. Some offer complimentary Wi-Fi, beer and wine with meals, and immersive cultural experiences ashore; plus innovative balcony staterooms and suites designed to bring guests closer to passing scenery.

I would not know what to do without your outstanding services and contributions to our high-end client cruise programs. Each and every one of the qualifiers commented on how well executed the program was and can’t wait to sail again.”
