Free European City Stays Among Avalon's New Year Specials

Avalon Waterways has kicked off 2016 with a celebratory range of New Year specials, including free Monograms city stays in Europe and savings of up to $1690 per couple on some of its most popular river cruise itineraries.

Available for bookings until April 8, 2016, the specials give travellers a choice between cash savings or the opportunity to extend their holiday in cities like Paris, Amsterdam, London or Rome:

·        Free Monograms City Stay – Receive a free four-day Monograms city stay package with dozens of select 2016 departures. Choose from a range of different European cities and six cruise itineraries, priced from $3303* per person twin share for an eight-day cruise on the Seine, Paris to Normandy's Landing Beaches.

·        Save $1690 per couple – Book select 2016 European river cruise departures and save $1690 per couple.  Choose from dozens of departures and more than 20 different itineraries on rivers including the Rhine, Danube, Rhône and Seine.  Prices start from $2684* per person twin share for the eight-day Essential Holland & Belgium.

Monograms city stay packages offer all the freedom of independent travel but with a dedicated host to help with additional arrangements and advice. They include pre-arranged accommodation and sight-seeing, but still allow travellers the freedom to explore on their own.

Four-day Monograms packages include three nights' superior hotel accommodation, daily breakfasts, the services of a local host at the hotel and VIP sightseeing with local guides.  More than a dozen different destinations across Europe are available to choose from.

Avalon Waterways operates the most modern fleet of river cruise ships in Europe, with an average age of just over three years.  Its revolutionary Suite Ship design offers 30 per cent more cabin space than the industry average, with wall-to-wall panoramic windows that can be opened to turn its suites into open-air balconies.
