Avalon Waterways 2013 season of luxury river cruises is now available, introducing five brand new European itineraries, two new ‘Suite’ Ships and earlybird savings of up to NZ$2476* per couple with a free cabin upgrade on select European cruises.
Choose from over 30 itineraries in 2013, covering the length of Europe’s great waterways, ranging from eight to 24 days on the Seine, Rhône, Moselle, Rhine, Main and Danube rivers. The new cruises include Tulips of Northern Holland, Austrian Highlights & Bavaria, the Capitals of Central Europe, and Highlights of Germany.
In addition to the new itineraries, two brand new ships, Artistry II and Expression, will be launched in April and May 2013 which will give Avalon a total of five Suite Ships and take the total fleet of luxury ships to 12.
Avalon’s award-winning Suite Ships have revolutionised river cruise ship standards with two entire decks of all-suite accommodation. They offer 30 per cent more cabin space than the average competitor and feature wall-to-wall panoramic windows that draw back to transform each suite into an open-air balcony.
The first Suite Ship, Avalon Panorama has been a sellout success since it was launched last year and this prompted the addition of another two Suite Ships in 2012 – Avalon Vista and Avalon Visionary.
Other new initiatives in 2013 include Avalon Choice - a more flexible range of shore tours, dining and on-board activities allowing you to tailor your cruise to your own tastes. Choose between Essential, Traditional or Leisurely shore tours, which either gives you an overview of a destination or a more detailed encounter for those with a special interest. Or when dining, choose the superb cuisine of your ship’s elegant dining room, a casual barbecue or buffet at the roof-top Sky Bistro, or a customised taste of the local culture at an on-shore restaurant.
Avalon waterways latest earlybird offers include a FREE cabin upgrade offer on select 2013 European cruises, which means a saving of up to $2476* per couple, there are eight itineraries to choose from. Savings of $650* per couple are available on all other European cruises.
