News that comes as no surprise to us: Riviera River Cruises is proud to announce that it has received 2022 Magellan Awards from Travel Weekly for its solo traveler offerings. We’re not surprised because we have long touted – and advised single travelers – that Riviera represents one of the best choices when it comes to traveling solo. See Britton’s story, Riviera River Cruises: The Best For Solo Travelers?
Riviera received Gold and Silver Magellan Awards in the category of Cruise – Overall-Solo Traveler. This is the fifth year in a row Riviera has received a Magellan Award. According to Travel Weekly, the Magellan Awards honor the best in travel, from design to marketing to services, in a variety of travel industry segments, including cruise lines.
“Our solo traveler departures are a product no other European river cruise line offers, so we’re thrilled to be recognized for them,” said Marilyn Conroy, Riviera River Cruises’ Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing North America. “With solo travel growing in popularity in recent years, these departures are one of the ways we’re helping more people experience the joy of river cruising. And while we say they’re for solo travelers, that doesn’t mean you have to be alone – they’re also perfect for friends who want their own cabin.”
Riviera is the only European river cruise line to offer exclusive departures for solo travelers, on which cabins and suites across the entire ship are available with no single supplement. For 2023, eight itineraries are available for solo travelers on the Danube, Douro, Rhine, Rhône and Seine rivers and the Dutch waterways. In addition to its exclusive solo traveler departures, Riviera makes a small number of cabins on every departure available with no single supplement.
Including its solo traveler cruises, Riviera River Cruises offers 20 itineraries on 10 European rivers and waterways. Riviera’s fleet of 11 world-class river cruise ships is one of the youngest in Europe, with spacious cabins and suites, and its cruises include fine culinary experiences, from splendid breakfasts to four-course dinners featuring regional and international specialties, as well as expert-led excursions to classic sights and lesser-known places.
Riviera guarantees exceptional value, promising never to add hidden surcharges or fees, and it doesn’t automatically include gratuities or drinks, so the choice is up to guests.
