Avalon Waterways has revealed it will boost its presence in Asia next year, introducing a new ship as well as a range of new itineraries in Vietnam and Myanmar.

In a move which will double its capacity in Vietnam, the cruise line will launch the 36-passenger Avalon Saigon in September 2018. The new ship will join sister ship Avalon Siem Reap on the Mekong River, offering weekly departures and a variety of cruises including two new 18 and 21-day sailings.

As well as the two new Mekong itineraries, Avalon is also introducing a new 16-day itinerary on Myanmar’s Irrawaddy River.

The new cruises are included in Avalon Waterways’ new 2018 program which also features an expansion of the cruise line’s popular Active Discovery cruises in Europe to include sailings on the Rhine.http://indusatryclub.com.au/

The new eight-day cruises depart alternately from Frankfurt and Amsterdam and feature a variety of engaging excursions, from a hike along Germany’s Rheinstag to a bike tour along the Rhine and a running tour of Amsterdam.

To mark the launch of the 2018 program, Avalon Waterways is offering holiday credit of up to $2600* per couple on a range of departures in Asia and $2400* per couple in Europe. 

Available on bookings until June 6, 2017, the credit can be applied in several ways, from international flights to an upgrade on the chosen cruise or the addition of a Monograms city break or coach tour with sister brands Globus and Cosmos. 

Globus National Marketing Manager Chris Fundell said the offer would allow travellers to personalise their holiday experience.

“Travel today is all about choice, so we have designed our latest offer to provide our guests with more flexibility and more options when planning their dream trip. Whether they want to add on a city stay at the end of their cruise, see a bit more of the region or simply upgrade their cabin, it’s their choice,” Mr Fundell said.
