Come join Carol and me as we enjoy a fabulous river cruise from Paris to Normandy aboard one of the Suite Ships of Avalon Waterways, the Avalon Tapestry II.
Who: You. Come join us!
What: A river cruise with Avalon Waterways
When: May 5, 2018 – May 12, 2018
Where: Paris to Normandy
Why: Because it will be great fun!
If you have been a reader of our website and Saturday morning newsletter, then you know that we’re big fans of river cruising.
Carol and I have been working on sailing with each of the major river cruise companies so that we might offer our clients and readers better advice as they sort out which company to use and where to sail.
So far, we have sailed with Viking River Cruises twice, once with the Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection, and earlier in the Spring we sailed with AmaWaterways. We’ve sailed the Rhine, the Danube, and both of the wine country regions in the south of France.
Join us and you will save $750/person + Free Gratuities ($238 value)
It’s been great fun, and now we’re excited to announce that we’re sailing with Avalon Waterways on the River Seine from Paris to Normandy and back. And, as I said, you’re invited to come along with us!
We’ll be sailing on one of Avalon Waterways’ new “Suite Ships”.
What is an Avalon Waterways Suite Ship? Take a peek at the video to the right. It says it all.
We’ve had scores and scores of clients sail with Avalon Waterways over the years and they all come back happy and talking about these “Suite Ships”. Therefore, we thought it was high time we got aboard and experienced it for ourselves.
So. What do you think? What to come with us? Here’s the scoop…
