  • Avalon Waterways Ramps Up Traveler Options

    Avalon Waterways is a leading player in European river cruising with ships showcasing features and amenities that were thoughtfully designed with the traveler in mind. Everything from the introduction of floor-to-ceiling windows to hotel-style amenities in every stateroom has raised the bar in river cruising. And Avalon continues to lead the way with sailing three new “Suite Ships” in 2012, the Avalon Panorama, Avalon Vista and Avalon Visionary. Features like “Open Air Balconies”, wall-to-wall panoramic windows, and spacious staterooms and suites give travelers the freedom to experience their destination like never before.

    In 2013, Avalon Waterways is introducing Avalon Choice– an entirely new concept in river cruising. Avalon Choice gives river cruisers the freedom to personalize their cruise, from beginning to end. River cruisers will now enjoy the luxury of choice, from deciding what and where to eat, to selecting room configuration and cruising style; from choosing on-land discoveries and onboard enrichment programs to making online, pre-sail customizations via MyAvalon, beginning in 2013.

    Scenic Cruises Christens New River Ship Crystal in Germany

    And she is stunning! My husband and I were among other travel agents and media onboard to preview Scenic Cruises® sixth “Space-Ship,” the Scenic Crystal, sailing from Amsterdam to Rüdesheim, Germany where she was christened on April 25, 2012. Glen Moroney, founder and managing director, was on hand for the christening event.

    Scenic Crystal's Inaugural Sailing
    Scenic Crystal "Space Ship"

    Our cabin on the Danube deck featured a “Sun Lounge,” unique to Scenic Cruises. It’s a weatherproof, step-out balcony enclosed with a floor-to-ceiling glass patio door, where the upper portion can be lowered with the touch of a button to create an open-air balcony. You’ll never miss a Kodak moment as you glide past the many castles on the Rhine and Moselle.
