Avalon Waterways has announced a new Storyteller Series cruise for 2024: Cheers to 50 Years! A Storyteller cruise and birthday celebration with Jen Hatmaker

The eight-day, Active & Discovery through Holland and Belgium departure – part of the brand's special Storyteller Series of cruises – invites 150 travellers to celebrate Hatmaker’s first page of her 50th chapter (her 50th birthday!) while sailing the waters of Holland and Belgium.

Guests will spend their days gliding through the canals of Amsterdam, biking past Holland’s postcard-perfect windmills, walking through Rotterdam’s modern architecture, sampling sweet treats in Brussels and tagging the streets of Ghent along with their favourite Storyteller, Jen Hatmaker. 

This intimate vacation takes the idea of Jen’s traditional “me camp” to a whole new level.

“From special meet-and-greets to intimate lectures and performances, our Storyteller Series cruises are beyond words,” said Pam Hoffee, president of Avalon Waterways. “Hosted by celebrity authors, actors, artists and musicians, Avalon’s Storyteller cruises deliver scenic ports and riveting plots from history in legendary settings with insider stories from the artistic legends of today.”

Hatmaker is a New York Times best-selling author of For the Love; Of Mess and MoxieFierce, Free, and Full of Fire – as well as her new cookbook, Feed These People.  

She hosts the award-winning “For the Love” podcast and has her own Jen Hatmaker Book Club. She leads an online community comprised of millions of women, sharing in life’s secrets, woes and wonderful possibilities.

“Over the years, the water has represented both a salve for my soul and a venue for celebration,” said Hatmaker. “I have brought millions of joys and sorrows to its edge for celebration, healing and comfort. There is no place I'd rather celebrate my golden birthday than on an Avalon Active & Discovery cruise. Join me and my best people in this grandest of grand adventure. I’m turning 50! On a river cruise! In Europe! With you! YOLO!”
