The river cruise travel style is booming. That fact is especially evident in France, thanks to the surging traveler interest in seeing and experiencing quaint French villages, metropolitan city sites and enjoying wonderful cuisine with world-class wines. In response, Avalon Waterways will introduce two Suite Ships® on the rivers in France. The new Avalon Poetry II (unveiled in March) will sail the Saone and Rhône Rivers. And Avalon Waterways will unveil a NEW Suite Ship – the Avalon Tapestry II – on the Seine River in 2015.

“We are nearly doubling our capacity next year, giving 95 percent more cruisers the chance to sail France,” said Patrick Clark. “More importantly, we’re giving them the opportunity to enjoy the passing French countryside and landscapes from the comfort of the largest staterooms with the biggest windows – and views – in river cruising aboard two Suite Ships.”

Eighty percent (80%) of the staterooms on Avalon’s Suite Ships are Panorama Suites℠ featuring 200-square-feet of thoughtfully designed space. Space that comes complete with Open-Air Balconies®, featuring giant, wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows that open 7-feet wide, bringing the outside in.

The company is also unveiling a NEW itinerary featuring two of river cruising’s most popular, and diverse, rivers: The Rhine and the Rhône Revealed. On this 14-night cruise, travelers will experience two Suite Ships – the Tranquility II and Poetry II – as they sail through the Rhine Gorge and enjoy such picturesque French destinations as Lyon, Avignon and Arles.

Extending travelers’ opportunities to enjoy even more of France, its history and culture, Avalon Waterways is inviting cruisers to indulge in their passions and interests with four in-depth themed cruises in the region: Art & Impressionist, Culinary, Wine and a Jazz Cruise featuring a jazz festival in Vienne.

DEAL ALERT: To celebrate the launch of the 2015 cruise season, Avalon Waterways is offering travelers THREE WAYS TO SAVE & SAIL: Guaranteed air price with $250 air credit; or save 10% on select “Book Now” sailings or FREE pre-paid gratuities.
