FleetPro River Announces Two New Vessels for Avalon

FleetPro River (formerly River Advice) has announced the launch of two river cruise ships for Avalon Waterways; The Avalon Poetry II and Avalon Impression. These state-of- the art ships are part of a series of twelve Avalon vessels FleetPro is managing.

The Avalon Poetry II and the Avalon Impression offer an intimate cruise setting along the Rhine, Main, and Danube Rivers. Like their sister ships, the Avalon Artistry II and Avalon Visionary, the Poetry II and Impression feature two full decks of suites offering wall-to-wall panoramic windows that transform the living space into an open-air balcony. The 200 square feet, Panorama suites are more than 30 percent larger than the industry standard, giving guests the rare opportunity to wake up to the most enchanting sceneries.

Onboard amenities include an alternative dining option in the Panorama Bistro, complimentary Wi-Fi access, an expanded fitness center, and a spacious Sky Deck with premium lounge chairs, whirlpool, and light al fresco lunches at the open-air bistro. These beautiful passenger cruise vessel have a variety of restaurants, bars, and extensive spa and leisure facilities.

A third new 2014 new build Avalon vessel (Avalon Illumination) will be delivered in April, 2014.

“We are proud to play such an important part in the expansion of Avalon’s growth on the European rivers. The ships and accommodation will provide the most optimal river cruise experience for the Avalon guests. In the development and building, we completely focused on designing a ship offering the highest quality vacation and delivering an optimal destination experience,” commented Robert Straubhaar President and CEO of FleetPro.
