Avalon Waterways: An Upscale Adventure Downriver

Ask any past guest and they'’ll tell you: Avalon Waterways equals luxury, uncompromising standards, and authentic explorations of river ports throughout Europe (and beyond).

The continent’'s youngest river fleet positively sparkles. Every Avalon vessel has been constructed with comfort in mind - passengers enjoy premium amenities, consummate personal service, and Europe’'s most spacious selection of staterooms, including 200-square-foot Panorama Suites and 300-square-foot Royal Suites boasting 360-degree views. Along the way, both onboard and ashore, you'’ll also enjoy multiple opportunities to gain a fuller appreciation for the places and cultures you'’ll encounter via demos/presentations conducted by local experts.

In addition to its growing collection of European cruises, Avalon Waterways offers river itineraries that sail deep into China, Egypt, and the Galapagos. The line'’s selection of revolutionary Suite Ships® is expanding, too: three such vessels (Avalon Illumination, Avalon Impression, and Avalon Poetry II) are now available for booking, and another two will debut in 2015.
