SuperBreak Offers Short-Break River Cruises with A-Rosa

SuperBreak Offers Short-Break River Cruises with A-Rosa

SuperBreak has formed a partnership with A-Rosa to create a selection of short-break river cruise packages. Three different five-night packages are now available, including a four-night all-inclusive river cruise and one night’s pre-cruise accommodation in the city of embarkation. To ensure maximum revenue earning opportunities, agents can also add flights with full CAR protection.

Graham Balmforth, National Sales Manager, SuperBreak, said: “This is the first time we have branched into the river cruising market and it adds another element to our short-break packaged product.”

Lucia Rowe, Head of Sales UK & Ireland, A-Rosa River Cruises, said: “The city breaks market has always been one of our main target markets and therefore partnering with SuperBreak is very exciting for us. The river cruising concept in Europe and the city break market are so similar, and at the same time they can complement each other in the best possible way. With these new packages, customers can enjoy the best of both.

“Our plans for 2017 are to expand further into this very successful and lucrative market and to support partners such as SuperBreak. Therefore we will be offering even more short-break itineraries across our destinations, so expect to see more packages in the future.”
