Omega World Travel CEO named godmother of river cruise ship

February 14, 2018 / Michelle Baran

Riviera River Cruises' 167-passenger Robert Burns will be christened by Omega World Travel founder Gloria Bohan at a ceremony in Vienna on April 3. Bohan founded Omega World Travel (No. 17 on Travel Weekly's 2017 Power List) in 1972. It has since grown into a global travel management company with annual revenue of more than $1 billion. Omega owns online cruise agency Cruise.com and travel technology company TravTech. Following the christening ceremony, the Robert Burns will depart on a three-night cruise from Vienna to Budapest that will host about 75 North American travel agents. After the inaugural sailing, the Robert Burns will sail along the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers. The 443-foot-long vessel is being billed as an all-suite ship with the smallest suites measuring 183 square feet each. There will be superior and deluxe suites, and the suites on the upper two decks will feature a French balcony.
