ASTA 2024 Rivercruise Expo

Amsterdam Day One

semi-overcast 60 °F

I flew from Copenhagen the Amsterdam to attend the 2024 American Society of Travel Advisors Rivercruise expo - the largest rivercruise event of the year with more than 1200 travel advisors in attendance.

I was picked up a the airport by Avalon Waterways - part of the Globus Family of Brands - and transported to Avalon Passion, my home for the next 4 nights. The highlight of the day was the Christening of the Riverside Debussy - the newest ship on the River. To kick the expo off there was a gala reception, followed by dinner on Passion.
