A SNEAK PEEK AT THE BEST 2019 RIVER CRUISE DEALS
Premier has special Early Booking offers on all the major river cruise lines.


 

Even though the year isn’t even half over, 2018 has turned out to be
the most in demand year EVER for river cruise vacations.

It is absolutely evident that word is out among travelers that: 1) a river cruise is your BEST and most REWARDING cruise vacation; and, 2) a darn great VALUE as well.

Now, what about 2019? Well, the good news and bad news is that 2019 is shaping up for even stronger demand. Even at this early date, pricing is firm. The river cruise lines are again launching very few new ships, thus there is less reason to offer deep discounts to kick off the 2019 booking season. Again in 2019, the very popular Douro River and Russian cruises will be the most in demand, so you absolutely MUST book early for any type of a discount for those two destinations.

But… don’t let our “doom and gloom” copy scare you off.
We just want to give you a realistic picture of what is happening in the river cruise industry. As you will see below, there are plenty of excellent river cruise deals, but just as in 2018, to leverage them in your favor, you’ll need to book early before they are pulled off the market. (FYI: It’s all about revenue management. The cruise line guys know how many discounted cabins they need to sell before pulling back any or all early booking discounts.)

Right now, we can offer excellent discounts — some as high as $3000 per cabin on some lines and some as low as $500 on others. Check out Premier’s special Early Booking offers below on all the major river cruise lines. Then call or email one of our river cruise specialist to discuss your destination-focused 2019 river cruise vacation.

High demand for river cruises is also NOT good news for our ‘solo’ travelers.
Why? Simple. Two people in a cabin generate more revenue for a cruise line than one person. The bottom line: Solo travelers seeking a great, value-priced river cruise MUST book early to get a special solo cabin (on Emerald) or a Waived Single Supplement price on other river cruise lines. Right now we can still book Emerald’s solo-designed cabins on almost every cruise (slightly smaller size and designed for one guest), but remember, there are only two on each ship, so they go quickly (solo cabins are not available on the Douro). For other solo-friendly cruise lines like AmaWaterways, Avalon, Uniworld and Tauck, waived solo rates are still available on most 2019 departures. Please don’t request Viking as they NEVER offer any special rates for solo travelers.

First river cruise? Save more and book a window (riverview) stateroom. Generally they’re about the same size and décor as balcony staterooms. Solo travelers can save so much more — up to $1000 more — in a window cabin. Trust me… you’ll thank us for the suggestion when you get back.

If you travel 'solo' and want to take a river cruise in 2019, do NOT dawdle. Now is the time to book for the BEST possible deal. Wait and you'll pay lots more for the cabin; or, unfortunately, won’t be able to go at all.

MONEY SAVING TIP!
For some reason, historically, demand for river cruises is at its highest in late May, June and September. Because of this demand, prices are significantly higher ($300pp–$600pp more). But, what if we told you that Premier could probably save you an additional $500pp on your river cruise without doing much. Would you listen? Of course you would! The way to save as much as an additional $500pp is to plan well, and plan far ahead.

How? Plan to travel the less in demand, but really beautiful months of mid-April, early May, and the full months of July, August and October. Beyond the extra savings, it’s just more fun to go when less people are around (We love April!). You’ll have few if any lines to stand in, enjoy lower prices in stores and restaurants, and fantastic weather.
