Want to try a river cruise? If so, Avalon Waterways is here to help. Stéphanie Bishop of the Globus family of brands reports that Avalon is offering travel agent discounts of up to 70% on a variety of Avalon’s European cruises this fall. With the choice of four popular itineraries and a range of dates from late September into October, agents and one travelling companion are invited to enjoy Avalon’s modern ships with their premium service and numerous amenities. With a customer satisfaction rating of 98% and more than 85 years of Globus experience behind its brand, Avalon is encouraging agents to set sail and experience the charms of floating through Europe. Available cruises include the 15-day Magnificent Europe priced from $1,730 after the 70% discount (departures Sept. 28, Oct. 23 and 30, including a special interest Music cruise on one of the Oct. 30 sailings); and the 13-day Rhine and Moselle priced from $1,168 after the discount. Departures with a 60% discount comprise the 13-day Blue Danube Discovery, from $1,520 (departing Oct. 24, a Jewish heritage special interest cruise) and the 10-day Balkan Discovery, from $1,302 (departing Oct. 26). Airfare, port charges and gratuities are not included. Space is limited and expected to sell out quickly. “These are not just great fares. It’s a wonderful opportunity to experience Avalon and our great crews, stylish ships and memorable shore excursions,”says Bishop.
