Avalon travelers have inspired the company to utilize more than 85 years of travel expertise to design the best river cruise experience possible. They’ve taken everything special about river cruising and made it even better – down to the last detail. The views are panoramic and spaces large and inviting; comfort is king and dining personalized. Plus, thanks to the rich partnership with Globus®, the itineraries are legendary.
Avalon Waterways invites travelers to experience the views they deserve when sailing the world’s rivers. Because unlike other cruise ships, Avalon Waterways has designed a vast majority of its staterooms (64 percent) so beds face the windows and the incredible sights river cruising is famous for. In fact, on two full decks of every Suite Ship® in Europe and Southeast Asia, Avalon Waterways offers travelers a unique point-of-view: One where the view is the whole point.
Avalon angled the guest beds to face out so you can enjoy the breathtaking views passing by! In doing this, they also opened the rooms up to give travelers more stateroom and bathroom space. More space and a better view from the comfort of bed? That’s what happens when you pay attention to the details.
The staterooms showcase wall-to-wall windows, giving you panoramic, floor-to-ceiling views of Europe’s awe-inspiring landscapes. In fact, Avalon’s are the largest standard windows in river cruising – 30 percent larger than the others. Even better? The wall-to-wall windows open 7-feet-wide, inviting the outside to come in.
Avalon changed the river cruise industry by designing the ship, and entire river cruise experience, around YOU, the guest. They call it Inspired Design. Not only does Avalon boast the largest standard staterooms and suites on the European waters, our amenities are countless, including fitness centers, flat screen TVs, Sky Deck with shade system, premium lounge chairs, whirlpool, free Wi-Fi, and many more. Avalon is renowned for having the best Certified Local Guides in the business and land excursions that are second to none.
Finally, we invite you to take advantage of Avalon Choice, which allows you to customize every last detail of your river cruise, so it's a one-of-a-kind experience created specifically for you.
