Avalon Waterways unveils plans for a new Suite Ship
Mastering the art of blending luxury with comfort isn’t easy. Nor is it easy to blur the lines between outside and in. Avalon Waterways’ Panorama Suites – available on two full decks of every ship in Avalon’s fleet – have done just that. And that’s not all. In addition to launching Avalon Envision in April with godmother and best-selling author Elizabeth Gilbert, the river cruise company has announced plans to launch the new Avalon View in 2020.
Providing travellers with the most consistent fleet-wide ship and stateroom experience available from any river cruise operator across the globe, Avalon View will mark Avalon Waterways’ 14th Suite Ship in Europe and its 16th Suite Ship worldwide. In fact, Avalon Waterways is exclusively sailing new Suite Ships with an average age of just six years.
Avalon’s Suite Ships have made a splash in river cruising since the Avalon Panorama debuted just eight years ago in 2011 and have not only garnered industry awards – including the “Best Cabins” in river cruising from Cruise Critic for four years in a row – but also won over river cruisers across the globe.
Both Avalon Envision (new for 2019) and Avalon View (new for 2020) are 135 metres long with two Royal Suites (28 square metres) and 65 Panorama Suites (19 square metres) on two full decks, as well as 16 staterooms at 16 square metres each. Avalon Envision will sail on the legendary Danube River while Avalon View will ply the romantic Rhine River.
Avalon 2020 is available to book now: Book a 2020 Europe cruise early and save up to AU$4,600 per couple on select sailings.
