Each of the five lines will dedicate one ship to accommodate Symposium attendees and all will follow an identical itinerary.
Participating cruise lines include AmaWaterways, Avalon River Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises and Viking Cruises.
The Symposium runs from March 17 to March 22, 2018, with cruises departing from Amsterdam on March 18 and sailing to Arnhem, Rotterdam and Kinderdijk in the Netherlands before returning to Amsterdam on March 21.
To highlight the dovetailing that occurs between cruising and hotel stays, all six Virtuoso preferred hotels in Amsterdam will host Symposium attendees: Conservatorium Hotel Amsterdam, Hotel De L’Europe, InterContinental Amstel Amsterdam, Pulitzer Amsterdam, Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam, and Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam.
David Hansen, senior vice president, Virtuoso Events, said that:
“This level of cooperation among competing river cruise lines is unparalleled in the history of the travel industry. Turning this bold vision into a reality for the 2018 Symposium happened because of the strength of our personal connections and the collaboration that flourishes within the network, where members, partners and Virtuoso come together to achieve a common goal.”
