TORONTO — Avalon Waterways will add a new Suite Ship in 2019, the Avalon Envision, marking the company’s 13th Suite Ship in Europe, and the company’s 16th Suite Ship worldwide.
The move makes the fleet all Panorama-class.
“Each of our Suite Ships in Europe features two full decks of these spacious staterooms,” says Stéphanie Bishop of Avalon’s Canadian office. “Measuring 200 square feet, they feature our trademark ‘open-air balconies’ to bring in the local sights and sounds.” Even better, with beds facing the windows you need only lie back and relax to enjoy the passing views of medieval towns and vineyards.”
Featuring what the company says are the widest opening windows in river cruising, Avalon Waterways’ Panorama Suites have wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows that open wide: over two meters wide in Europe and 3.5 meters wide in southeast Asia. Avalon’s Panorama Suites also feature large marble bathrooms.
Avalon’s first Suite Ship, Avalon Panorama, debuted in 2011.
The new Avalon Envision will debut in the spring 2019 and sail on the Danube River on several itineraries including the 10-day Danube Dreams, 10-day Legendary Danube and 12-day Blue Danube Discovery.
Clients booking a 2019 cruise by April 24, 2018 can save up to $3,500 per couple on select Europe and Asia river cruises.
