MORE CHANCES TO LIVE THE “SUITE LIFE” IN 2015
Avalon Waterways Reveals Plans for 2 More Suite Ships!
LITTLETON, Colorado – February 5, 2013 – Cruising with Avalon Waterways will become an even more “suite” experience in 2015. Thanks to the overwhelming response Avalon’s Suites Shipssm have received, next year the river cruise ship company will unveil two (2) additional award-winning Suite Ships: The Avalon Tranquility II and Avalon Tapestry II.
The addition of these ships, plus three (3) new Suite Ships scheduled to be unveiled this spring (Avalon Impression and Avalon Poetry II – March; Avalon Illumination – June), will bring the fleet’s Suite Ship total to 10! As a result, in 2015, 66 percent (66%) of Avalon’s European fleet will be Suite Ships.
Each suite on all 10 Suite Ships features the industry’s only Open-Air Balcony®, providing travelers a combination of the largest windows available with a sliding glass door that opens wide at 7-feet, plus a spacious seating area. With a focus on bringing the beauty of Europe inside, Avalon’s Open-Air Balconies can be enjoyed any hour of the day, year round, adding considerable comfort to the overall guest experience without taking space away from the room.
Honoring its commitment to provide the newest, roomiest and “viewiest” staterooms in Europe, Avalon’s Suite Ships boast two full decks of suites. “Eighty percent of the rooms on our Suite Ships are 200-square-foot Panorama Suites or 300-square-foot Royal Suites,” said Patrick Clark, managing director of Avalon Waterways. “And our smallest stateroom in the fleet is still a very comfortable, 172-square-feet. No other European river cruise line can say this.”
A Panorama Suite on Avalon’s Suite Ships comes fully appointed and ready to deliver the very best of river cruising. “On our ships, cruisers discover they can really ‘live’ in the remarkably large, indoor/outdoor living space we provide, which is 30 percent larger than the industry standard,” said Clark.
Thoughtfully designed to offer the most stateroom space on any river cruise vessel, these Suite Ships also provide travelers a Sky or Panorama Bistro (for alternative dining) as well as Panorama, Sky and Observation Lounges, featuring plenty of seating and cozy spots to relax and take it all in.
Whether reading under designer lighting in a corner of the Panorama Lounge, sipping a cocktail after dinner at the Observation Lounge or watching the passing riverscapes while keeping up with their fitness routine in the fitness center, Avalon cruisers will experience the company’s unparalleled passion for details.
