Living the active life? Hitting the gym everyday? Perhaps you are a regular walker, biker or hiker? Afraid that if you take a river cruise you would have to give that up for a week? Worry no more! This type of cruise was designed especially for you and your lifestyle.
Active and discover is a themed cruise. Perhaps you have heard of a Christmas Market Cruise, or a Music Fest Cruise and one of my all time favorites, a Wine Cruise! And A&D is for passengers who love to live an energized and very active lifestyle. An A&D cruise offers a travelers all the must see sights and inclusions of a river cruise yet still provides the traveler the active lifestyle they are used to living.
It’s a river cruise experience that offers more options in each port to keep the traveler on the go and in the know. Beyond what is already included, an Active & Discovery will have plenty of other ways to customize you cruise vacation with more optional and self-guided excursions.
Everyone who takes a river cruise wants to see new things, but many traveler’s want to do more things as well. The best way to describe an A&D cruise is that more activities are offered to travelers with varying interests for all energy and fitness levels. From on-the-move experiences and interactive discoveries, to the’ must see’ sightseeing. You can customize the vacation to best suit your interests, pace, and energy level.
Active & Discovery Cruises are for travelers who want to go beyond the scenery and take part in the scene. No matter the age, 45 to 75 and beyond, the goal is to fully engage you. It’s the perfect opportunity to personalize your cruise your way and maintain the active lifestyle you already have in place at home.
Every passenger on an Active & Discovery Cruise 100% will still see all the ‘must see’ sights but the difference is HOW you want to see the sights. You may wake up one day and decide you want to chill out and not be so active, and that is OK too because you have the option. The choice is yours.
Classic ~ History and heritage of local destinations and the ‘must see’ sites.
Discovery ~ This category can be things like cooking classes to painting workshops – immersing you as you travel and explore the local culture.
Active ~ (a broad menu designed to keep you active and moving!) ~ Excursions that keep you in motion and on the go! For example, on the Danube, I personally went on a guided kayaking tour on the Danube and I got to see the Austrian waterways and shoreline scenery from a very unique perspective.
In addition to the cruise being more focused on the active lifestyle, Avalon makes it even more special by visiting more unique port cities that are above and beyond the more traditional ports of call that everyone has heard of. Active & Discovery cruises spend more time in each port for exploration (because of the nature of this type of active sailing) and they do more day sailing rather than sailing over night so you can not only be a part of the scenery (biking from one port to the other to meet the ship) but you can literally see more of the scenery you would otherwise miss because of night sailing.
Everyone wants to travel and see new things but many travelers want to DO new things as well. They want to maintain their healthy on the go lifestyle and if this describes you, you are a good fit. No matter your age or your pace, there is something for everyone. An Active & Discovery gives all passengers the same opportunities as a regular sailing but purposely adds in a ton more active tours for people who are genuinely more active 365 days a year.
