Peter Deilmann River Cruises has revealed it will not be adding fuel surcharges to its 2009 European cruises.

The cruise company unveiled the news while launching its 2009 European river cruises programme which offers increased commission for agents, a free excursion for customers on every cruise and additional options for customers within the cruise-only fare.

Peter Deilmann, managing director Stuart Perl, said: “We’ve been encouraged by the growth in the river cruise sector for those seeing an alternative, luxurious way of sightseeing in Europe.  We have looked at what’s best for guests and agents and believe that the enhances fare structure ticks all the boxes offering agents increased earning opportunities.”
