When I opted to take a trip, I gravitated toward the Globus family of brands. They’ve been in the business over 90 years and, from a customer service standpoint, they’re a standout. I would be traveling with my mom and wanted the experience to be as stress-free as possible. Sailing from Basel to Amsterdam allowed us the chance to visit our German roots, cruise through the Rhine Gorge, and we would only need to unpack once – the delightful perk of a floating hotel. With that in my mind, we decided that the Romantic Rhine with Avalon, the sailing sister company of Globus, would be the perfect fit.

Avalon Waterways introduced a new itinerary called “Active Discovery” that I knew I wanted to partake as my first river cruise. This type of itinerary offers the action-packed adventures and interactive discoveries which allows all kind of explorers to choose their own Avalon excursions. I decided to explore the Rhine River on an 8-day Active Discovery from Mainz to Amsterdam.
Every year, cruise lines introduce the latest and greatest- be it new itineraries, new ports, new ships, or even new trends. Be on the lookout for what’s new with cruising in 2019.

River cruising is my favorite way to travel! After sailing the Danube, Rhine, and Main, this year we decided to sail from Arles in the south of France, to St Jean de Losne, over the Saone and Rhone, where we disembarked and traveled to Paris for a couple nights before saying “au revoir” to France.
Globus family of brands (GFOB) are leaders in the travel industry providing amazing vacations for their clients. When people travel with Globus, Cosmos, Monograms or Avalon Waterways, they can be certain that the quality and level of customer service will be top notch.
Globus family of brands are always looking for ways to say thank you to their return travelers, which is why they just launched the popular, Welcome Back Credit to their return clients. This Welcome Back Credit is replacing the discontinued Journeys Club program.
