We know what you’re thinking, “Aren’t I already traveling with a group when I choose an river cruise vacation?” Well, in fact, you are. But you may be looking to travel with a special group of people on your river cruise vacation, in which case we’d like to give you a little extra attention, and when applicable, a discount.
River cruises are ideal for group travel. Planning a family reunion? Putting together a special vacation in celebration of big wedding anniversary? Want to reconnect with people you met on your last ocean cruising vacation? The types of groups we can cater to are as varied as our vacations.
Let Avalon Waterways take extra special care of your group. Not only will we make it easier on you, the vacation coordinator, but our vacations guarantee your group will come away with lasting memories. Your group will be talking about their trip for years to come.
Let’s get started.
Group Travel Is Easy
Travel is responsible for some of life’s most memorable moments. Celebrating a life milestone or simply enjoying the vacation of a lifetime are just a few of the reasons people crave to travel. And when people can share those experiences with friends and loved ones, those memories last forever. Group travel is fun, rewarding and sometimes even life changing. So gather some of your closest confidents and plan a group vacation with Avalon.
Why should your group travel with Avalon Waterways?
Vacation choices & the newest ships – Avalon offers a variety of cruise vacations in Europe, Egypt, China and the Galapagos Islands. And you will always travel on the newest ships on the world’s waterways. In Europe, our six ship fleet is the youngest in the industry and provides boutique-like experiences as you sail. In our other worldwide destinations, we partner with some of the newest and most accommodating ships sailing. Avalon travelers get the best on-land experiences, thanks to all excursions being operated by Globus, the world’s leader in escorted travel. And all on-board dinners include local wine.
Discounts for group travelers – It only takes eight passengers to form a group for any of our river cruise vacations and earn credit for half price land and cruise. Plus the 16th traveler travels for free (cruise and land only). The discount can be divided among your group to save everyone a little on the price of their vacation or to treat a special person in your group, such as your mother as a surprise for her 60th birthday. *Applies to most Avalon European river cruises. Call for details.
