Avalon Waterways Debuts Exclusive “OFF-THE-BEATEN-PATH” River Cruises for 2013!


In addition to announcing two new Suite Ships in Europe and Avalon ChoiceSM – an entirely new concept in river cruising – for 2013, Avalon Waterways is also helping river cruisers explore more of the world on its waterways with five exclusive new itineraries.

“In 2013, we’re not only providing our cruisers more choices on our ship, we’re giving them more off-the-beaten-path cruises to choose from in northern Holland, Austria, Central Europe and Germany,” said Patrick Clark, managing director of Avalon Waterways.  “And, in Asia, we’re adding an exciting new cruise along China’s mighty Yangtze River, aboard two new ships.”

 Award-winning Avalon Waterways offers travelers the youngest, most innovative fleet of ships in Europe, China, Southeast Asia, Egypt and the Galápagos.  Our travelers have inspired us to utilize more than 80 years of travel expertise to design the best river cruise experience possible.  We’ve taken everything special about river cruising and made it even better—down to the last detail.  Our views are panoramic and spaces large and inviting; comfort is king and dining both personal and flexible.  And, thanks to our partnership with Globus, our itineraries are legendary.

By design, Avalon cruisers are privy to all-inclusive access to a destination, including guided sightseeing in every port, VIP entry into key destinations and unparalleled cultural immersion and storytelling thanks to highly skilled Cruise and Tour Directors.  In addition to countless trade accolades, Avalon Waterways has garnered some of the industry’s most prestigious honors including being voted the Best River Cruise Line in 2010 by Cruise Critic editors, among the top 5 river cruise lines in Travel + Leisure’s 2011 World’s Best Awards and Condė Nast Traveler’s 2011 Reader’s Choice Awards; the river cruse line was also chosen as the “Best Value in River Cruising” by Arthur Frommer’s Budget Travel.  Avalon Waterways is part of the Globus family of brands.
