Avalon Affinity Joins Fleet May 9

April 14, 2009 By: Kirk Cassels


Avalon Waterways is set to introduce its newest river cruise ship, Avalon Affinity, on May 9 in Europe. The ship is the second of five new ships planned between 2008 and 2010.

Suzanne Hall, senior director at Ensemble Travel Group, will serve as the ship's godmother and is the first American to christen an Avalon Waterways' ship.

"In five short years Avalon has established itself as a major European river cruise operator," said Patrick Clark, managing director of Avalon Waterways. "Our ships are more modern in design, showcasing contemporary appointments and state-of-the art technology. They also house the largest staterooms available. All staterooms measure 172-square feet and 90 percent boast floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic sliding glass doors, while our Junior Suites are a spacious 258-square feet."

After the festivities, Avalon Affinity will sail eight itineraries in 2009: The first, already sold out, is the new Windmills, Vineyards & Paris itinerary, departing on May 11th from Amsterdam and visiting France, Luxembourg, Germany and Belgium

Guests can book Avalon Affinity during its inaugural year and receive free companion air on all Avalon Waterways air-inclusive, 2009 Europe itineraries (or 50 percent off air for single travelers) for vacations booked before April 21, 2009.
