The Avalon Waterways experience with Melissa Doyle

Journalist, author and broadcaster, Melissa Doyle, first sailed in 2022 on an Active & Discovery on the Danube cruise. She loved the relaxed luxury experience and became an instant river cruise convert, and later Avalon Waterways' Australian Ambassador.

Last year, Melissa discovered the delights of the Romantic Rhine with her husband. Now, she's sharing her adventures, top cruising tips, and more as travellers look forward to setting sail in 2024. You can watch Melissa's videos below and read her story on the blog.
