Searching for an enticing destination for your incentive or meeting group this fall or in 2024? Announcing Transcend Advance, the first charter-only (full buyout), fully-customizable luxury river ship. Rhine River sailings are available beginning in August this year!
The Transcend Concept: Flexible, Custom-Designed Voyages
Transcend’s unique selling proposition serves private groups only, without disruption from individual retail promotions and pricing. Choose your departure port and trip duration. Select your ports and arrange shore excursions to fit your guests’ interests and your organization’s programming needs. Flexible meeting venues, restaurant menus, onboard entertainment and enrichments, and service options are also tailored to your event
Transcend has two luxury river ships being purpose-built for the group travel and MICE (meetings, incentives, and events) markets, scheduled to enter service in 2025. While construction is underway, high interest in Transcend’s concept and serendipitous circumstances led the company to contract a former Crystal Cruise river vessel and create Transcend Advance.
With 55 rooms for up to 110 guests, Transcend Advance is the perfect size to create a memorable travel experience. The river cruiser can accommodate larger groups in back-to-back sailings.
The Transcend Advance All-Inclusive Onboard Experience
Each Transcend Advance guest room features a panoramic balcony window to enjoy the ever-changing river scenery. Other room amenities include king beds that convert to twins, espresso coffee machines, luxury bath products, 24-hour room service, an interactive 40” television system, a mini-fridge, and twice-daily housekeeping.
Because only your group is onboard the ship, your program needs will determine the daily agenda. Menus can be customized, and dining times adjusted. You can also schedule and configure meeting spaces with AV capabilities as required.
Your all-inclusive Transcend river cruise makes planning easier! A la carte meals, still & sparkling water stations, unlimited soda, juices, coffee and tea, unlimited regional wines, and draft beers with meals are all included in the cruise fare. Meeting space and basic AV equipment and tech support are also included at no additional costs. Complimentary Wi-Fi/internet access too!
Rhine River Customized Itineraries
The iconic Rhine River reveals the beauty of Western Europe as it travels through the Netherlands, Germany, France, and Switzerland. A 3 to 7-night Rhine cruise might sail between Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and Basel, Switzerland. You can also customize your group’s Transcend voyage and sail round trip.
Guests sailing on Transcend Advance will experience a unique mix of historic villages and large cities along the Rhine River. Basel is a beautiful medieval port with its Old Town next to a hip and modern urban city, while Amsterdam is a vibrant city full of energy. Other memorable port options include Rudesheim, Mannheim, Cologne, Germany, and Strasbourg, France. From the upper Rhine, Advance can also sail on sections of the Moselle River.
