On 8 April 2019, we were delighted to christen the newest member of our fleet: Avalon Envision.
Envision's Godmother Elizabeth Gilbert, author of 'Eat Love Pray', read her blessing out to the crowd:
“We come from the water, we are made of the water, we are drawn to the water. Our lives are rivers meant to be explored and enjoyed. Let every curious soul who steps foot upon this vessel have a safe and blessed journey. May we all be changed for the better by what we discover along this river.”
New features onboard Envision include adjustable in-suite coffee tables, a newly designed Panorama restaurant offering unobstructed 360º views of the scenery and a number of environmental initiatives for 2020, which include:
• The phasing out of single-use plastic on board, including drinking straws, coffee lids and water bottles.
• New 'healthy water' taps have been fitted throughout the ship so that guests can refill their own reusable bottles with filtered or infused water.
• New engine technology that mean the ship produces 20% lower emmissions than our competitors.
• State-of-the-art green sewage treatment process that only discharges clean water into the rivers.
Envision will sail along the Danube between Budapest and Nuremberg.
