“We’re thrilled to receive this honor from Travel Weekly and we thank the judges for recognizing our efforts since entering the North American marketplace just a few years ago,” said Marilyn Conroy, Riviera River Cruises’ Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing North America. “Since then, we’ve continued to build upon our reputation for high-quality ships and experiences, exceptional value and dedication to the travel agency community. We hope to be the go-to cruise line for Americans sailing Europe’s rivers and waterways.”


“Magellan winners are those in the industry who communicate travel’s promise, through words, images and design, in ways that ring true and stand out,” said Arnie Weissmann, editor in chief of Travel Weekly. “They create the environments and craft the messages that spark travelers’ imaginations.”


Travel Weekly’s Magellan Awards are judged by a unique panel of top travel professionals representing the best names and most accomplished leaders from the industry. Rather than compete with one another, entrants instead are judged against a standard of excellence based on the long experience of Travel Weekly. To uphold this high standard of excellence, a category may have multiple winners or no winners at all.


Riviera River Cruises offers 20 itineraries on 10 rivers and waterways, including dedicated departures for solo travelers with no single supplement. Its fleet is one of the youngest in Europe, with no ships older than six years. Riviera’s cruises include spacious cabins and suites, fine culinary experiences from sumptuous breakfasts to four-course dinners featuring international classics and regional specialties, and expert-led excursions to classic sights and lesser-known places.


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