French America Line, the newest U.S. cruise line which recently announced deluxe five- to 10-day voyages on America’s waterways aboard the intimate 75-cabin Louisiane beginning August 22, is offering up to $420 in free pre-paid gratuities per stateroom*, based on double occupancy, for any bookings made on or before June 30 for sailings departing prior to December 31, 2016.
“French America Line is redefining river voyages in so many ways and this special inaugural offer is another way we set ourselves apart by providing substantive value for each guest,” said Tom Markwell, President, French America Line.
The elegant French-inspired ship accommodates a maximum of 150 guests in 75 inviting suites and staterooms for sailings with an attentive U.S. crew of 64. Itineraries celebrate regional cultural influences in food, music and history in areas once known as French America along the Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee, Cumberland and Red rivers, and the waterways of the Gulf Coast.
