Set Sail With Avalon In 2018

Avalon Waterways has released its 2018 preview, featuring its most popular European and Southeast Asia river cruises.

The 56 page brochure outlines includes a host of insights into the selling features of the cruise line, which in 2018 will feature 17 ships in Europe, 14 of which will be Panorama class ships featuring a majority of staterooms as the company’s signature “Panorama Suites.”

The brochure also outlines Avalon’s themed cruises for 2018 which will include such long-time favourites as Art and Impressionism; Festive Time (featuring Christmas markets); History; Wine; Jewish Heritage; Culinary and Beer.

And for the first time, Avalon will feature a Garden and Nature-themed cruise, on board one of its Tulip Time departures.

Also in Europe, the company will again feature its Active Discovery departures with an array of optional outings such as guided hiking, biking and canoeing excursions.

Introduced this year, the Active Discovery cruises are proving very popular with active boomers.

And travel agents will want to take note that for 2018, Avalon has special group policies in place, with one in 10 — or even one in 8 — clients free on select Europe and Southeast Asian cruises.
