Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

Today, I'm pleased to present fantastic offers on river cruises with Avalon Waterways in 2022 and 2023.

Save up to $2,800 per couple off the cruise price, plus get air rates starting at $399 per person from select gateways on certain Europe sailings.

Save up to $1,500 per couple on other Europe cruises.

Save up to $2,000 per couple off select itineraries in Egypt, South America and other destinations.

Pay no single supplement in certain cabin categories on select departures.

The exclusive Avalon Choice program gives travelers their pick of a wide variety of included excursions on every river cruise itinerary. This way, 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 painting class in Amsterdam or sample wines in the Mosel Valley, for example.

On organized "Active" excursions, you can pedal along the cycling paths of Budapest 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.

Avalon has introduced several new river cruises for this year. I've a highlighted a few itineraries below:

Active & Discovery on the Seine -- On a nine-day itinerary that begins and ends in Paris, guests can choose from 23 excursions. Sample French delicacies on a food tour of Paris, kayak in Rouen and visit the World War II landing beaches of Normandy.

Active & Discovery on the Moselle -- Sail the Moselle River from Remich to Frankfurt on an eight-day itinerary that offers a choice of 21 different excursions, including a canoe trip down the Moselle, a wine tasting in Bernkastel and visits to Reichsburg and Frankenstein castles.

Springtime in Holland & Belgium -- This two-week itinerary showcases the 2022 Floriade Expo, a horticultural expo of spectacular floral displays that is held once every 10 years. Other highlights include a visit to Keukenhof Gardens in Rotterdam and a canal cruise in Amsterdam.

Danube Dreams with Oberammergau -- Experience Oberammergau's famous Passion Play, a centuries-old tradition that depicts the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, on a 12-day journey that also visits Budapest, Bratislava and Vienna.

Avalon launched their Storyteller Series last year, a collection of cruises featuring celebrity hosts. This year's guest speakers include Gillian Flynn, author of thriller novels Gone Girl, Sharp Objects and Dark Places, and singer Edwin McCain, among others.
