Avalon responds with new Suite Ships on three French rivers
The river cruise travel style is booming. That fact is especially evident in France, thanks to the surging interest in seeing and experiencing quaint French villages and metropolitan cities and enjoying wonderful cuisine with world-class wines.
In response, Avalon Waterways will introduce two of its Suite Ships on the rivers in France next year. The new Avalon Poetry II (launched in March 2014) 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 in France next year, giving 95 percent more cruisers the chance to sail that lovely country,” said Avalon’s managing director 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 our two Suite Ships.”
