Trying to customise a holiday can be difficult due to the fact that most travel operators have everything pre-planned for you and that is generally how it stays; indeed, trying to change some small details on a holiday can usually mean that you end up paying extra. However, if this is the case, why not go with a company that actually encourages you to change some specific details in your holiday and tailor make it so you get the experience that you want?
Avalon Waterways does just this and the cruise company is renowned for being able to accommodate the wishes of its passengers. Many cruise ships still utilize the old system of one dining hall where everyone eats and this is, more often than not, quite a formal affair however with Avalon it is slightly different and their cruise ships let you choose from a variety of eateries on its 19 strong fleet that covers destinations in 4 continents.
This is not the only way in which you can customize your Avalon experience however as its excursions are well known in the industry for being accommodating. While the company provides certified guides for all the local attractions and sights, what you see and when you see it on the excursions is entirely up to you and you can work directly with the cruise operator to create your own excursion plan. Some people prefer to see as much as possible in a short space of time, others only want to see certain slights while some would prefer a more relaxed pace; all of these are possible and it is just a case of working with the company to find the right balance for you.
So, where can you sail to with Avalon? The cruise routes that the company operates are hardly new or industry breaking; they take in many countries in Europe including Germany and Holland, they have also extended to China in recent years as this route has grown in popularity and the Galapagos Islands are another popular destination with Avalon not to mention its trips to the African continent with Egypt. Indeed, in 2013 the company is further extending its itinerary packages.
Avalon has picked up many awards in recent years
The point of this cruise company is not so much on the ‘different’ or unique locations that it visits (even though they are all popular routes), the difference is in the quality and the customisable options that you can have when it comes to sailing with Avalon. This is why it won the ‘Best River Cruise Line’ in 2010 from Cruise Critic, the Panorama ship won the ‘Best River Cruise Ship’ from the Travel Weekly Readers Choice Awards in 2011 and it has picked up a host of other awards and accolades in recent years as well.
Avalon Waterways provides a cruise experience with a slight difference. If you want to be able to customize your cruise holiday to your own specifications and not feel shackled by the itinerary or the excursions that the operator has planned for you then Avalon is the answer for many people. With a strong fleet, industry award winning ships and routes and new routes being planned for 2013, Avalon is fast making its way to the top of the river cruise market.
