Cruise to Spring Savings at Hotel Villa Portofino in Avalon, Catalina’s Riviera

AVALON, Catalina (April 2016) – Rarely to never does a successful ferry company trim its fares after reducing operating costs, then pass along the savings to the public. The company is Catalina Express, and it is passing along savings that stem from a reduction in fuel costs as it partners with Hotel Villa Portofino, located on the Catalina Riviera, to debut the Spring Savings Package.

The room package, available through May 19, 2016, Sunday – Thursday, offers a savings of  $27.00.  It is priced at $138.00 per person, double, space-available and includes courtyard room, with upgrades to suites, available.   Package can be priced for weekend stay.
