Ovation Travel Secures First Australian Passengers On New, Luxury Amras European River Cruise

August 27, 2015 River Cruising No Comments Email Email

Following the launch of Amras Cruises to the Australian market, specialist Sydney travel agency, Ovation Travel, secured the first Australian cabins on the brand’s signature Nuremberg to Budapest itinerary.http://join.travelmanagers.com.au/

The 8-day ‘Danube Waltz’ showcases medieval abbeys, Imperial Vienna, the spectacular Wachau wine region, and stunning eastern European jewel towns of Bratislava, Esztergom and more.

Ovation Travel’s clients felt that from the moment they stepped on board the impressive and luxurious Amadeus Silver ship the magic began, reporting that the view from their stateroom and private French balcony was incredible, and that their dedicated Amras Concierge, Boryana, was absolutely fantastic. The excursions were all run in small groups with English only speaking guides and state-of-the-art headsets which made listening a breeze. They never felt like they were in a large group and the whole experience felt incredibly personalised.

General Manager of McLachlan Tours, the exclusive Australian wholesaler of Amras Cruises, Mr Peter Smith said: “It is fantastic to receive such positive feedback from the first Australian passengers to return, and with the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) highlighting river cruising as the fastest growing cruise segment, this reinforces what a great product Amras Cruises is going to be for our market.”
