Avalon Waterways Unveils “Your Way” Cruising

Adding a river cruise vacation to a business trip just got easier with flexible cruise initiative

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 is making it easier for 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; or a Globus escorted touring vacation.

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 the world’s most fascinating cities – from Paris to Prague and Budapest to Berlin,” said Pam Hoffee, managing director of Avalon Waterways.

In addition, travelers have their pick of a wide 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 iconic and historic sites.

DISCOVERY  Travelers are invited to engage in inspiring and interactive 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 energetic 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.

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.
