We at the Globus family of brands are deeply saddened by the tragic events in Brussels. Read Full Statement »

Brussels Update - 3/22
While there were Cosmos travelers in the city at the time of the incident, we can confirm that all customers are safe and secure and departed Brussels today as scheduled. We are working closely with our representatives in the city to ensure the safety and well-being of future travelers, and therefore guests on any of our brands scheduled to travel within the next month (through April 22, 2016) on any cruise or tour that includes Brussels may rebook to any future 2016 departure date, or 2017 if their 2016 itinerary is not available. If you have questions specifically related to upcoming departures, please call 866-397-6593 or email traveleradvisory@globusfamily.com.

We will continue to closely monitor the situation and provide any updates, as necessary. Our thoughts are with all of those affected by these events, and we applaud the resiliency of the people of Brussels.

When you travel for fresh perspectives, shouldn’t every experience feel the same? We think so. Avalon is committed to delivering local flavor – right down to the table. Using fresh and local ingredients, our chefs introduce you to regional delights as well as comfort you with Western favorites in a variety of tasteful settings. From breezy al fresco lunches at the Sky Bistro to elegant four-course dinners in the glass-walled dining room, you can savor fresh fare and the perspectives you crave day and night.

While Avalon cruises provide a selection of nutritious local delicacies and Western favorites at every meal, we’re raising the bar with the introduction of Avalon Fresh℠. Created in conjunction with two of Europe’s rising culinary stars—the Wrenkh brothers—Avalon Fresh allows travelers to guiltlessly indulge in creative dishes that combine surprising flavors with a dash of innovation. With the philosophy of procuring the freshest ingredients from small farms and local producers, Avalon Fresh brings the passing landscape to your plate for an inspiring, fulfilling, and healthful dining experience.
