Avalon Invites Travelers to Chart Their Own Course in 2019
The company that reinvented river cruise ships is now reinventing the river cruise experience. In 2019, Avalon Waterways is increasing opportunities for travelers to enjoy its collection of Active DiscoverySM river cruises, including a NEW itinerary on the Rhône River. Next year, Avalon Waterways is also introducing a completely revamped Avalon Choice® program, offering travelers “Classic,” “Discovery,” and “Active” options on every river cruise itinerary.
Along the Danube, Rhine & Rhône Rivers, Avalon travelers can now hike, bike and engage in their surroundings in unimaginable ways, thanks to our unique Active Discovery cruise collection. From action-packed experiences to interactive discoveries, these vacations offer something for all interests, energy, and fitness levels, allowing our guests to tailor their vacation to their personal taste and pace.
Travelers on every itinerary will also have the opportunity to explore the world in an entirely new way. The NEW Avalon Choice program offers cruisers three excursion styles:
1) CLASSIC. A local expert guides travelers through the history and heritage of local destinations to marvel at legends, lore and architecture of iconic and “must see” historic sites.
2) DISCOVERY. Travelers are invited to engage in inspiring and interactive activities designed to cater to their interests – from cooking classes to painting workshops – Discovery excursions help them immerse themselves in culture.
3) ACTIVE. Avalon guests can embark on energetic excursions – from a guided jogging tour of Amsterdam to biking, paddling and hiking their way through each destination – keeping travelers in motion and on the go.
And, to further help our guests go their own way, our NEW AvalonGo App invites them to independently explore each destination throughout their vacation with a detailed, daily schedule of their itinerary, a list of nearby attractions (featuring hours of operation, historical facts and more), maps, directions as well as local cafés, restaurants, bars, and entertainment options for further exploration.
Avalon guests can now let the world in and their inner explorer out. They have an open invitation to experience each destination in more ways, in exceptional ways and most importantly, in their own, very personal ways.
