Avalon Waterways announced Emmy-award winning TV host Meredith Vieira as the godmother for their newest ship, Avalon View!
If you’re familiar with Vieira’s career, then this appointment is ideal, given that she cut her teeth hosting the daytime talk show, The View. More recently though, you’ll recognize her as the face millions of Americans begin each day with on The Today Show.
On Thursday, Vieira was clearly excited about her new post, remarking, “I am extremely honored to be godmother to this beautiful ship! What a relaxing and magical way to travel through Europe. So come on board, raise a glass of bubbly, and, as I like to say, take a little time to enjoy the VIEW!”
Guests will have plenty of time to do just that as the ship glides down the remarkable Danube River in the heart of Europe. Holding just 166 passengers, each and every one will be treated to a spacious suite, featuring the only open-air balconies in the river cruising industry! Within these suites is Avalon Waterways’ signature “Bed with a View,” allowing guests to gaze out the widest-opening windows on the Danube at the tantalizing scenery.
So there you have it! The host of The View is the godmother of Avalon View, a ship featuring “Beds with a View.” That’s a mouthful, so hurry and call your cruise consultant now at 1-800-377-9383 to let them know you’re ready today!
