You travel to the best experience of Europe

You Travel Takapuna believes the best way to experience what Europe has to offer is by embarking on a river cruise. Take in the sights as your cruise along the Danube, the Rhine or even the Seine.  You Travel Takapuna can help you find your perfect cruising experience to a range of destinations.  With the help of one of their Cruise Accredited agents, You Travel can make your European cruising dreams come true.

Top pick is an Avalon Waterways River Cruise. With Avalon Waterways, the possibilities are as wide open as the expansive views. The same company that reinvented river cruise ships has redefined the river cruise experience. Beyond the widest views on the water is an open invitation to experience your destination in more ways, in exceptional ways, in your way.

With an Avalon Waterways river cruise, you receive more than a good view – you receive the suite view. Their entire fleet in Europe and Southeast Asia is completely comprised of Suite Ships, each featuring their Panorama Suites with the widest opening windows in river cruising, the industry’s only Open-Air Balcony, and an inviting bed facing the ever-changing scenery. Wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling, the panoramic windows blur the line between outside and in. Even if you’re a seasoned traveller, you’ve never seen, or experienced, a world like this.

Beyond your ship is a world waiting to be explored – your way. While Avalon Waterways has thoughtfully planned a captivating collection of nautical journeys along the world’s legendary rivers, your final itinerary is completely up to you. With the proprietary YourWay options, you can extend your holiday before and after your cruise with exciting stays in worldly cities. And with their exclusive onboard Avalon Choice offering, you have your pick of the widest array of included excursions – from classic sightseeing to immersive discoveries to active adventures. You might choose to visit an ancient abbey, join a cooking class, or pedal a bike through town.

For a more independent adventure, the onboard Adventure Host is on hand with an impressive inventory of complimentary goodies for individual pursuits. Whether you want to track your steps for the day or anchor yourself under a shady tree with a picnic lunch, your Adventure Host is on hand with the equipment, accessories and maps you need to create the perfect outing. With the flexibility to choose exactly what you wish to do before, during and after your cruise, Avalon offers the most desirable amenity of all – the freedom to cruise your way.

The greatest legends of the world were never bystanders, so when traveling the globe, why should you be? Avalon’s new Active & Discovery river cruises offer a deeper immersion into each destination with the most engaging activities imaginable. Practice your J-strokes as you canoe along legendary riverbanks or perfect your brushstrokes in a local art studio. Steer a bicycle through the scenic countryside or sear today’s catch in a lively cooking class. From inspiring food and wine tastings to invigorating jogging and hiking tours, the Active & Discovery river cruises along the Danube, Rhine and Rhône were designed for every type of doer.

Avalon also sets the stage for adventure and the table just for you. At every meal, their talented chefs prepare mouth-watering regional recipes – as well as Western favourites – using the freshest of local ingredients. How you wish to savour each delectable bite, however, is up to you. Avalon FlexDining puts you in control of your meals, allowing you to dine according to your cravings, mood and schedule. Whether you choose a late al fresco lunch at the Sky Grill, an elegant four-course dinner in the glass-walled dining room, or a petite plate at the Panorama Bistro – with flexible seating and a variety of inspiring settings – the choice to dine early, late, in bed, or on deck is yours.

Just for you, You Travel Takapuna is hosting an information evening so you can learn more about the fantastic European river cruising itineraries Avalon Waterways has to offer.
