Vantage Travel offers 144 Boston Marathon victims and first responders a free 7-day Rhone River Cruise aboard the ms River Discovery II. Vantage Deluxe World Travel CEO Henry R. Lewis worked in conjunction with the One Fund to give something unique back to these heroes as an expression of gratitude.
This exclusive vacation includes round-trip airfare between Boston and Marseille, deluxe stateroom accommodations for six nights, all 21 meals, daily sightseeing, and cultural activities. The cruise follows the southern Rhone river with port calls at such Provencal highlights as Avignon, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Arles, Viviers, and more. Guests will visit three UNESCO World Heritage sites (Arles, Avignon, and the Pont du Gard) as well as Vantage Cultural Connections: cooking demonstrations, wine tastings, local interaction and lectures. Guests will also enjoy Vantage Travel Lifestyle features such as a pub crawl and onboard entertainment. In addition to cruise and air travel, all taxes and port charges, transfers and baggage handling are complimentary for these special guests.
One of the benefits of river cruising is the intimate size and luxurious style of the ship, better suited for talking about shared experiences. Launched in March 2012, the ms River Discovery II is a deluxe vessel whose sleek design and welcoming public spaces invite conversation, relaxation and luxurious comfort. In addition to fine dining in the Compass Rose or casual fare in the Captain’s Club with retractable roof and panoramic windows, the ship offers free wifi, US electrical adapters, in-room infotainment systems, flatscreen TVs, iPod/iPhone docking stations, music and more.
