U.S. River and Lake Cruise Program reservations through May 10
A travel presentation focusing on U.S. river and lake cruises and small ship itineraries around the world is scheduled for 11 a.m. Thursday, May 12, at the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott on the Coastal Highway north of Rehoboth Beach.
Co-hosted by certified cruise experts Accent on Travel and the sales leadership of American Cruise Line and Oceania Cruises, the event is open to those interested in learning more about small ship river and ocean options from luxury for trips from 2022 to 2024.
The event is free, but advance reservations and confirmation in hand or on a mobile device are required for entry.
Founder and owner of Accent on Travel, Annette Stellhorn, said: “Pent-up demand for travel, coupled with a desire to avoid current US testing requirements for vaccinated Americans flying home, continues to drive the demand for hassle-free luxury travel experiences. Sailing on a cruise from Baltimore, Cape Liberty and New York is becoming increasingly popular with Mid-Atlantic vacationers.
American Cruise Lines’ focus has been casual-style immersion cruising along America’s intracoastal rivers and lakes, with embarkations as far away as Juneau, Alaska, and as near as Baltimore. With 35 different itineraries and visits to more than 25 states, travelers can spend plenty of time exploring the country on American Cruise Lines.
Over the past three years, the cruise line has grown rapidly, as international travel still challenges nearly 40% of US travelers. Her highly inclusive style of small-ship cruising attracts travelers aged 55 and over who want to explore the United States via a relaxing and spacious first-class ship.
“With the announcement of the addition of 12 additional small ships (109 passengers) to the fleet and dozens of new itineraries, the best way for our current and potential Accent on Travel customers to understand these great options is to have a local audiovisual presentation. The new catamaran-type ships combine the adventure of an expedition with the luxury of the finest river cruises. Large staterooms with private balconies, included shore excursions, open bar and embarkation from Baltimore allow even the most committed homebody to indulge in the luxury of American Cruise Line, ready to travel,” said Stellhorn.
Oceania Cruises, known for its laid-back small ship and country club cruises, will also have a representative on hand to detail new itineraries ranging from New York departures to around-the-world options. Part of the Regent Seven Seas NCL group, Oceania Cruises has used the past three years to continue building beautiful new ships that offer unique itineraries and the best onboard experiences and accommodations. Oceania continues to win awards for its onboard restaurants that offer a wide range of the best cuisine at sea at no additional cost. Port calls typically include itineraries with an overnight stay using the ship as a hotel, and longer, more immersive shore excursions.
American Cruise Line and Oceania Cruises focus more on an adult cruise experience, with no onboard entertainment or babysitting services available for children.
Both lines, like many other cruise lines that cater to U.S. travelers, have a preferred agreement with Accent on Travel to provide cruise passengers with exclusive benefits and amenities that cannot be received when booking directly from cruise companies. Accent on Travel professionals are trained specialists who have the best interests of travelers at heart and access to cruise line management, giving travelers a greater likelihood of having a cruise vacation that exceeds their expectations.
Accent on Travel customers are better informed before and during their cruise vacation purchase than the average cruiser, resulting in a much better overall cruise experience.
