AUSTRALIAN travel company APT next year will have one of its riverships visiting Paris on the Seine for the first time since the company pioneered European river cruising in the Australian market in 2000.
Two new riverships, boutique AmaVida (for the Douro) and the AmaPrima (for cruises Amsterdam-Rousse) will create a fleet of 12 ships APT co-owns with river cruise specialist AmaWaterways.
It has also announced it is adding a panoramic ship-front second restaurant to its six Aria ships for dining indoors and out.
General Manager, Chris Hall said: “This new investment in more ships, enhancements of the Aria ships and the infrastructure required for the new rivers, is part of a continuing business development process we started when we launched the Europe river cruising holiday concept here in 2000.
“APT’s policy is to nurture our relationships with our co-owner expert operators and continue to invest in new product opportunities for our return customers and new travellers, while enhancing our hallmark standards of luxury, elegance and style in the process,” he said.
