LITTLETON, Colorado – April 23, 2013 – From wine and wellness to culinary and culture, next year, Avalon is increasing its “special interest” cruises by 30 percent to meet the increased demand for passion travel. In 2014, the award-winning river cruise company will be adding beer tasting, golf, wellness and World War I history cruises to its already diverse lineup.
NEW! BEER TASTING CRUISE
“Many of our cruisers have enjoyed beer tastings on our Austria and Germany cruises,” said Patrick Clark, managing director of Avalon Waterways. “Now, we’re inviting like-minded travelers to come together for a cruise focused on discovering regional beers.”
On this cruise (October 13, 2014 departure of Austrian Highlights & Bavaria), travelers will have the chance to enjoy onboard beer tastings, visit historic breweries and learn about European beer-brewing techniques via onboard lectures.
NEW! GOLF CRUISE
In 2014, Avalon travelers are also invited to get teed-up for an incredible Golf cruise. On this special departure (July 7, 2014 departure of Austrian Highlights & Bavaria), golf-lovers will enjoy golf outings as a local enthusiast arranges tee times on courses throughout the vacation (non-golfers will have the opportunity to experience included excursions).
NEW! WELLNESS CRUISE
In addition, next year Avalon is appealing to health-focused travelers with a new wellness cruise (July 7, 2014 departure of The Blue Danube Discovery). On this “special interest” getaway, travelers will start their mornings with onboard exercise programs featuring stretching and yoga. Throughout the cruise, they will attend lectures on healthy lifestyles and will enjoy healthy (and delicious) dining options.
NEW! WWI HISTORY CRUISE
It’s been 100 years since the start of WWI and in 2014 Avalon will give travelers two opportunities to learn more about the “Great War” which claimed the lives of more than 9 million (July 14, 2014 departure of Grand France and July 22 departure of Paris to Normandy’s Landing Beaches). On these itineraries, travelers will visit some of Europe’s most famous war sites and learn little-known facts with onboard lectures.
In addition to its new passion cruises, Avalon will continue to offer travelers the following, popular “special interest” itineraries next year:
- Art & Impressionist Cruises
- Wine Cruises
- Culinary Cruises
- European History & Politics Cruise
- Jewish Heritage Cruise
- Music Cruises (Jazz or Classical)
- Festive Time Cruises
- President’s Cruise
“Our special interest cruises sell-out quickly year-after-year,” said Clark. “Travelers interested in exploring their passions along Europe’s waterways for 2014 should book early.”
