Ever since it set to sail, Avalon Waterways have led the river cruise trend, unveiling an unforgettable fusion of distinctive sights, colourful cultures and enduring traditions for those sailing aboard their innovative and award-winning Suite Ships. Now, they have come up with a plan for cruisers to board Avalon Waterways and experience small ship cruising at 50 per cent off.

Elaborating on the offer, Varesh Chopra, Managing Director, Avalon Waterways, South Asia & Middle East, said, “While cruising enthusiasts get to take their companion for virtually free, we would like to invite our travel agent partners to avail this opportunity to sail on Avalon and witness our legendary hospitality. This will give them a sneak peek into ‘elevated cruising’ and what makes Avalon a brand of choice for the sophisticated yet discreet travellers from South Asia & the Middle East.” He added, “With our all-inclusive sailings on the fabled rivers of the world, there can be no better way to enjoy the never-ending vistas that only river cruising offers.”

Avalon Waterways has many offers for travel agents. “These offers have proved to be hugely popular among cruisers and travel agents. We have just witnessed our cruise bookings swell for 2023,” Chopra said. “In fact, Avalon Waterways is coming off one of its strongest sales seasons ever. From witnessing a surge in bookings, especially to Danube and to the Rhine Rivers, Avalon Waterways is now planning to add new departures and cruises in 2024,” he added.

Travel agents’ experience

Sharing her recent cruise experience, Yashoda Salian, Uniglobe BIT Travels, Mysore, said, “We were a group of eight pax who had sailed on the Tulip time Avalon Cruise. We had a fabulous time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on Avalon. The whole journey had surpassed our expectations in every way. We were really pampered by the outstanding cruise staff. The rooms, food, drinks, and entertainment excursions were superb. Definitely, the best part was the panoramic view of the vistas that we could see pass by from the luxury of our bed.”

Key offerings

Sharing about some exciting
offerings, Chopra highlighted about delightful intimate cruise settings around the rivers of Europe, Asia and South America.

“All our fleet in Europe and Southeast Asia comprises Suite Ships, each featuring Panorama Suites, having the widest opening windows in river cruising. With two full decks onboard the ship and a spacious 200 square feet, and Panorama Suites are 30 per cent larger than the industry standard,” he said.
