Pleasant Holidays® And Journese® Expand Europe Portfolio With The Addition Of Bucharest, Romania, For 2023 Travel And Beyond

Tuesday, Mar 21, 2023 0


Pleasant Holidays and its luxury brand, Journese, today announced the expansion of vacation package offerings in Europe with the addition of a new destination in Eastern Europe: Bucharest, Romania. Located near the port of Giurgiu, a key embarkation and disembarkation point for Danube River cruises, Bucharest has a thriving Old Town, iconic architecture and a lively nightlife. It is the cultural center of this historic eastern European country.


“Bucharest is conveniently close to a number of ports along the lower Danube River and a favorite pre- and post-cruise destination,” said Jack E. Richards, President and CEO. “Romania also boasts lush river valleys, majestic mountain ranges, historic churches and awe-inspiring palaces and castles dating as far back as the 13th Century. It’s an ideal addition to our Europe lineup at a time when the continent is proving highly popular with U.S. travelers.”


Pleasant Holidays offers online booking and instant reservations at six Bucharest hotels ranging from 3- to 5-stars, including Hilton Garden Inn Bucharest Old Town, Moxy Bucharest Old Town and Sheraton Bucharest Hotel, while both Pleasant Holidays and Journese offer InterContinental Athénée Palace Bucharest, an IHG Hotel; JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel and The Marmorosch Bucharest, Autograph Collection.


Pleasant Holidays and Journese offer land transfers to and from Giurgiu and other cruise ports, as well as to and from Bucharest Henri Coanda International Airport (OTP), where flights are available on major airlines connecting through all of Europe’s main airports such as Amsterdam, London and Paris.


Tours and excursions available through Pleasant Holidays and Journese include: Private Day Trip to Dracula’s Castle, Panoramic Bucharest Tour, Full-Day Bucharest & Parliament Palace, Sightseeing in Bucharest & Surroundings and Half-Day trip to Snagov Monastery & Mogosoaia Palace, with more being added in 2023.


With the addition of Romania, Pleasant Holidays and Journese offer 25 countries in Europe with more than 825 hotels, river and ocean cruises, plus rail travel. Pleasant Holidays and Journese highly recommend travel protection coverage for international travel with up to 100% commission protection and Cancel-For-Any-Reason options to protect travelers’ vacation investment.
