Riviera River Cruises Enhances Travel Advisor Support with Tourcrafters and Auto Europe Partnership


FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Riviera River Cruises has partnered with Tourcrafters, which is wholly owned by Auto Europe, to assist travel advisors in making flight and hotel arrangements for clients traveling from North America. Based in Libertyville, Illinois, Tourcrafters has more than 40 years of experience in European travel, while Portland, Maine-based Auto Europe has been a leader in worldwide car, hotel and air services for more than 60 years.

“At Riviera, we’ve always been supportive of the travel agency community and this new partnership will allow us to help advisors even more,” said Marilyn Conroy, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing North America for Riviera River Cruises. “Like our own company, Tourcrafters and Auto Europe have decades of experience in the industry – together, we’ll be able to work with advisors to put together a more complete package for their European river cruise clients.”


After making a booking with Riviera River Cruises, advisors will be transferred to Tourcrafters and Auto Europe if flight and hotel accommodations are needed for clients. Auto Europe will pay advisors commission on both services.


Riviera River Cruises offers a variety of cruises on rivers and waterways across Europe, including dedicated departures for solo travelers with no single supplement, as well as themed and holiday season itineraries. Its cruises include fine dining experiences, a free drinks package and expert-led excursions to iconic sights and hidden gems aboard one of the youngest fleets of ships in Europe, with spacious cabins and suites.


Riviera guarantees exceptional value, promising never to add hidden surcharges or fees, and it doesn’t automatically include gratuities, so the choice is up to guests.
