THE JUST RIGHT WAY TO RIVER CRUISE.
What defines luxury? Is it the enjoyment of the good things in life, or is it simply having things just the way you prefer them? At Avalon Waterways, we navigate with both elegance and ease to deliver a "just right" experience—one that transports you at just the right pace, with just the right amenities, and just the right views. Along the legendary waterways of Europe, we balance enriching activities, included excursions, mouthwatering cuisine, and unmatched service to offer the perfect degree of relaxed indulgence. We call this the Avalon difference.
OUR VISION. YOUR VIEW.
We've mastered the art of blending luxury with comfort, and now—blurring the time between outside and in. Not only are our Panorama Suites on our Suite Ships 30% larger than the industry standard staterooms, our wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling windows open wider than any other, creating river cruising only Open-Air Balconies and an open invitation to discover and dream. And speaking of dreaming, we turned our beds to face the window, giving you a bed with a view for the sweetest visions ever. Even if you're a seasoned traveler, you've never seen Europe like this.
THE ART OF MAKING YOU FEEL AT HOME.
We don't just reserve the warmth and comfort for your room on an Avalon river cruise—we carry our welcoming spirit throughout the entire ship and spill it onto shore. From the captain and Cruise Director to your cabin steward and wait staff, we deliver exquisite service that's professional, approachable, and informative—never stuffy. But it doesn't stop there. Our friendly Local Guides greet you at every port with engaging tales that bring you closer to your destination. Whether you're on board or on shore, you're perfectly taken care of every step of the way.
THE RIGHT INCLUSIONS ON BOARD AND ON SHORE.
Regional wine and beer with lunch and dinner. Onboard enrichment activities. Onshore excursions with Local Guides. An exclusive experience features all the right inclusions, yet still leaves room for your own preferences. In addition to little luxuries like complimentary Wi-Fi, a selection of dining options and venues, and around-the-clock cappuccinos, Avalon gives you the greatest luxury of all—the freedom to customize your cruise for the richest experience possible. We call that a "just right" inclusive.
SAVOR THE LOCAL FLAVORS OF THE WORLD
From morning breakfast to late-night snacks, Avalon frees your taste buds from the ordinary. Using the freshest local ingredients, our talented chefs prepare mouthwatering recipes from the region through which you're traveling and present them in a variety of inspiring settings. Whether you choose a breezy al fresco lunch at the Sky Bistro, an elegant four-course dinner in the glass-walled dining room, or a petite plate at the Panorama Bistro, you'll savor local flavors (and Western favorites should you crave them), as well as our Avalon Fresh'" menu offerings, throughout your vacation. On an Avalon cruise, every meal is part of the journey.
