Gals Abroad Getaways' Alle Pierce is Riverside Debussy's godmother

Alle Pierce's mission is to 'empower women to travel'
Alle Pierce, an Emmy Award-winning host, producer, travel expert and the founder of Gals Abroad Getaways, will serve as the godmother for Riverside Debussy.

Naming festivities for the vessel are set for March 13 in Amsterdam during the sold-out American Society of Travel Advisors River Cruise Expo.

There, Riverside Luxury Cruises will be exhibiting and showcasing this, its third vessel to enter service.

Riverside Debussy is scheduled to begin sailing the Rhine River March 23

'Alle’s extensive experience and infectious enthusiasm for travel makes her the perfect godmother for Riverside Debussy,' said Jen Halboth, CEO of Riverside Luxury Cruises, the Americas. 'Her mission to empower women to travel and her support of travel advisors is inspiration for the industry, if not for everyone.'

Bespoke group trips

Pierce's Gals Abroad Getaways offers bespoke group trips to 'empower independent women to chase their travel dreams one passport stamp at a time.'

Since her mother is a luxury travel advisor, Pierce grew up with river cruising.

'I am confident that Riverside Debussy will offer travelers an unparalleled opportunity to immerse themselves in the enchanting tapestry of Northwest Europe, a region that holds a special place in my heart,' Pierce said.

Riverside Debussy joins the double-wide Riverside Mozart and Riverside Ravel, offering spacious accommodations, luxury furnishings, gourmet food and included amenities.
