Cruiseco, a consortium of 160 of Australia’s leading cruise-specialist travel agencies, has designed a unique selection of 20-night luxury river-cruise-and-stay packages in Portugal and France between June and September next year in conjunction with AMA Waterways.

They embrace the best waterways of both countries, include extended pre- and post-cruise sightseeing stays, and there are enticing Early Bird savings for those who book before September 30 this year.

Each package begins with 3-nights in Lisbon and two days of escorted sight-seeing, followed by 7-nights aboard the luxury riverboat Amadouro on the Douro River from Porto to Vega de Terron and back to Porto with daily escorted sightseeing.

There’s then a flight to Marseilles to join the equally luxurious Swiss Pearl in Arles for 7-nights cruising the Rhone River to Lyon, again with daily escorted sightseeing, and a transfer to Paris for 3-nights, including 2-days sightseeing and optional tours.

Prices start from $9570pp* twin-share including First Class hotels in Lisbon and Paris, arrival and departure transfers in both cities and breakfasts daily, sightseeing as detailed in Cruiseco’s brochure, 7-nights cruising in both Portugal and France including onboard meals and onboard gratuities, wines with dinner and sightseeing as detailed. *Less $500pp if booked by September 30 2009.
