Avalon Doubles Down On 2022 Active & Discovery Cruises

On Avalon Waterways’ Active & Discovery cruises – which feature Avalon Choice excursions — every day is an adventure and every adventure is up to the cruise line’s guests.

In 2022, travellers are invited to choose an Active & Discovery cruise on the Danube, Rhine, Moselle, Rhône and Seine Rivers as well as the waterways of Holland and Belgium for the first time.

Active & Discovery cruises were first launched on the Danube River in 2017, and since then, Avalon Waterways has added these itineraries to every major European waterway it sails, increasing its offerings by 600%. And in 2022, the company is offering travellers six Active & Discovery itineraries with 47 departures.

Pam Hoffee, managing director of Avalon Waterways, said: “Untethered and full of opportunities to infuse interests and passions into each cruise, our Active & Discovery vacations feature extraordinary – included – activities that give travellers the choices they crave.”

Hoffee notes that: “On these one-of-a-kind cruises, every day, travellers can choose from a selection of included ‘Active,’ ‘Discovery’ and ‘Classic’ excursions. In fact, the average number of Avalon Choice excursions on these cruises is 22, giving our guests countless opportunities to customize their getaway.”

New Active & Discovery itineraries for 2022 are Active & Discovery on the Moselle and Active & Discovery on the Seine. They join Active & Discovery in Holland & Belgium (added in 2021); Active & Discovery on the Rhône (2019); Active & Discovery on the Rhine (2018) and Active & Discovery on the Danube (2017).

“Priced from $3,767, our Active & Discovery vacations include more excursions – at the same cost – as other river cruise itineraries,” said Hoffee. “They are the perfect choice for travellers who have a diverse set of interests; those who want to customize their vacation; those returning to a river for a new experience and multi-generational travellers with different passions and pace levels. There’s nothing else like them on Europe’s rivers.”
