Princess brings back tour pairing ocean, river cruise in Europe

Can’t decide between an ocean or river cruise in Europe in 2012? How about doing both in one big tour?

Princess Cruises says it once again is teaming up with river line Avalon Waterways to offer a multi-week trip that combines both types of Europe cruising.

Princess’ new 18-night Timeless Cities of the Rhine River cruisetour pairs a 11-night Princess cruise to Scandinavia and Russia with a seven-night Avalon cruise on the Rhine River from Basel to Amsterdam.

The Princess cruise will be aboard the 3,080-passenger Emerald Princess and include stops in several Baltic port towns. The Avalon cruise will be aboard the 138-passenger Avalon Felicity or 128-passenger Avalon Visionary and include stops in Strasbourg, Heidelberg, Mainz, Rüdesheim, Koblenz and Cologne.

Princess will offer two departures of the new cruisetour in 2012, on May 27 and Aug. 12. Prices start at $6,189 per person, based on double occupancy.

Princess and Avalon first joined forces this summer with a single departure of a tour combining cruises from both lines.
