Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

This week, I'm pleased to present some incredible deals on river cruises with Avalon Waterways. On an Avalon vacation, you can discover each destination your way through a wide range of immersive activities and excursions that are included in the upfront price.

Right now, our customers can book at exceptionally low prices with this special offer:

Enjoy huge savings of 50% on the cruise portion of select 2022 and 2023 trips. Book by September 23.

Or, take advantage of one of these fantastic deals when you book by September 30:

Save up to $2,800 per couple off the cruise price of 2022 and 2023 Europe sailings. Plus, get air rates starting at $599 per person from select gateways.

Save up to $4,000 per couple on departures in 2022, 2023 and 2024 in Europe, Egypt and other destinations.

The Avalon Choice program allows you to pick from a wide variety of included excursions on every itinerary, from hikes through French vineyards and painting classes in Amsterdam to walking tours of charming, medieval towns in Germany. You have the flexibility to spend each day in port as you wish.

On "Classic" excursions with local experts, learn about the destination's history and traditions during walking tours and visits to museums, cathedrals, castles or archaeological sites. Meanwhile, Avalon's "Discovery" experiences are more interactive: Join a cooking class in Lyon or sample wines in the Mosel Valley, for example.

On organized "Active" excursions, you might hike to hilltop Bratislava Castle or canoe through the gorges of the Ardeche River, a tributary of the Rhone. Adventure Hosts on European departures also can provide suggestions, maps, bicycles and Nordic walking sticks to those who wish to explore on their own.

The company's Active & Discovery itineraries provide even more immersive ways to take in the sights at every port of call with energetic shore outings. These can include hiking, biking, canoeing and jogging excursions.

Avalon will debut a new itinerary next year, The Best of the Rhine. This 5-day cruise passes through the dramatic Rhine Gorge, where picturesque castles stand on cliffs 400 feet above the water, and visits popular cities along the river like Strasbourg, France, home to the charming La Petite France district, and Breisach, Germany, gateway to the Black Forest.

The rate for Avalon's Europe cruises includes a river-view stateroom, onboard meals, Wi-Fi access, guided sightseeing, sparkling wine at breakfast and soft drinks and regional beer and wine at lunch and dinner.

Most of the accommodations aboard Avalon's Suite Ships in Europe are 200-square-foot Panorama Suites. These have wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows that slide open, essentially turning your room into one huge veranda.
