The river cruise experience is about to get better.
In 2019, Avalon Waterways will have its collection of Active Discovery river cruises, with new itineraries and a revamped Avalon Choice program.
Every itinerary will feature a unique way to explore the world around you.
The Classic choice puts travelers with a local expert guide for the must see and must do things. The Active choice is for those who love adventure and being on the go. The Discovery choice allows travelers to immerse themselves in a new culture.
"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," said Pam Hoffee, managing director of Avalon Waterways. "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."
Avalon Waterways new 8- and 9-day Active Discovery Cruises feature Panorama Suites, Open-Air Balconies and beds facing gorgeous river views.
