LITTLETON, Colorado – May 14, 2015 – In 2016, Avalon Waterways is inviting travelers to cruise into healthy living with two “special interest” departures for those passionate about exercise. One focuses on wellness and healthy living; the other provides golf enthusiasts the chance to swing their clubs along the Danube.

“Our special interest cruises sell out early year-over-year. It’s easy to understand why,” said Patrick Clark, managing director of Avalon Waterways. “On these special departures, our guests – in the company of others who share their passions – can enjoy onboard presentations by experts and daily exercise programs or a handful of golf outings at no additional cost.”

Wellness Cruise:

On this wellness cruise, travelers will start their mornings with an exercise program on the Sky Deck (weather permitting), featuring stretching and yoga. They can also attend healthy lifestyle lectures by an onboard expert as well as enjoy healthy (and delicious) dining options.

  • European Splendor – July 16, 2016 departure.

Golf Cruise:

Travelers don’t need to put their golf game on hold when cruising the Danube. Instead, this special golf-themed departure is a “must” for golf enthusiasts at all levels. A local golf expert will join travelers on board and will arrange tee times at three select courses throughout the journey.

  • Danube Symphony – August 20, 2016 departure.

BIG SAVINGS ON “SPECIAL INTEREST” CRUISES: Those booking a 2016 cruise early can SAVE 15% on all France river cruises OR SAVE 10% on all 2016 Europe cruises.  For details, click here.
