Why is the Balance cruise from Paris the only cruise you should take?
Because you get three cruise directors for the price of one! Cruise through France with Australia’s leading experts in Food, Wine, Spa’s and, of course, fun.
Onboard for the Balance cruise is the one and only, charming, witty and vibrant Deborah Hutton and two of her best friends, celebrity wine critic Nick Stock and International Spa Goddess Lyndall Mitchell.
Introducing your director of entertainment and fun…
Deborah Hutton, published cookbook author and professional MC is channelling her inner “Julie McCoy” to act as chief cruise director, entertainer, food taster and quality assurance expert.
Now, Deb is also the ambassador of Avalon Waterways (the host of our cruise) but that doesn’t mean that she is on every cruise of the season… in fact, she is only on one cruise this year and that is the Balance Cruise. So make sure you are on it! It leaves from Paris on the 18th of August.
Your personal director of wine
Nick Stock, author of the SMH Good Food and Wine Guide is cruise director of all beverages and will carefully select the wine to match the meals, share his vast knowledge of French wine and personally take us on some guided tours of his favourite Burgundy wines.
Nick says “When Deborah asked me if I’d help host her boutique luxury cruise through the heart of France I was thrilled, of course. But when I realised that the itinerary would take me through many of my most favourite (and special) parts of this beautiful and delicious country I could hardly believe it. This will be a treat to share!”
You personal director of relaxation
Lyndall Mitchell, founder of Aurora Spas is our cruise director of relaxation, mindfulness and indulgence. Lyndall will take us through daily morning rituals, help us explore the French approach to wellness and guide your bookings for the region’s finest day spas to ensure that this is one of the most rejuvenating holidays you’ve ever had.
