Avalon Waterways is preparing to unveil two more Suite Ships, christening the the Avalon Vista and Avalon Visionary in May of 2012.
Joining the Avalon Panorama, Avalon Waterways is providing cruisers a total of 185 Panorama and Royal Suites, measuring 200 and 300 square feet respectively.
While the Avalon Vista is a sister ship to the Avalon Panorama, the new, smaller 52-suite Avalon Visionary provides cruisers the experience of the Rhine River itinerary. Serving as the Visionary’s godmother is Nicole Mazza, representing American Marketing Group.
For the first time, Avalon Waterways will unveil two ships – the Avalon Visionary and Avalon Vista – in one christening ceremony. Mazza will be joined by Canada’s travel industry insider Vanessa Lee, serving as the Vista’s godmother.
The Avalon Visionary and Avalon Vista mark the company’s 12th and 13th new ships in Europe since 2004. Post-christening, the Avalon Visionary will introduce Panorama Suites to the Rhine River in 2012, sailing the 8-day Romantic Rhine cruise (starting at $1,849) as well as several Christmas cruises. The Avalon Vista will sail the 11-day Legendary Danube cruise (starting at $1,839) and 13-day Blue Danube Discovery (priced from $2,249) as well as the 15-day Magnificent Europe vacation.
