In 2020, Avalon Waterways is inviting travelers to chart their own course, at their own pace, before or after their cruise with its new Your Way program. Utilizing sister companies – Monograms and Globus – Avalon Waterways allows cruisers to customize their European river cruise vacation, from start to finish.
In 2020, using Avalon’s YourWay options, travelers can book their cruise and then add-on:
- An Avalon Waterways land extension featuring expert, guided sightseeing;
- A Monograms independent vacation package that comes with hand-picked hotel accommodations, city sightseeing and the on-site services of a Local Host;
- A Globus escorted touring vacation with included sightseeing, hotel accommodations, transportation, coach driver, Tour Director and certified Local Guides.
“With our new Avalon YourWay program, we’re making it easier for travelers to extend their river cruise vacation with land itineraries that are perfectly suited to their preferences and budget,” said Pam Hoffee, managing director of Avalon Waterways. “No matter which ‘Your Way’ extension our guests choose, we will take care of details like ship-to-hotel transportation, hotel accommodations and sightseeing…”
In addition, with its Avalon Choice menu on each and every river cruise itinerary, travelers have their pick of an array of included excursions, from classic sightseeing to immersive discoveries and active adventures.
CLASSIC – A local expert guides travelers through the history and heritage of local destinations to marvel at legends, lore, and architecture of various sites.
DISCOVERY – Travelers are invited to engage in activities designed to cater to their interests – from cooking classes to painting workshops – Discovery excursions help travelers immerse themselves in culture.
ACTIVE – Avalon guests can embark on active excursions – from a guided jogging tour of Amsterdam to biking, paddling and hiking their way through each destination – keeping travelers in motion and on the go.
And, the company’s AvalonGO App helps travelers independently explore each destination throughout their vacation with a detailed, daily schedule of their itinerary, a list of nearby attractions (featuring hours of operation, historical facts and more), maps, directions as well as local cafés, restaurants, bars, and entertainment options for further exploration.
