Discover the World with Avalon Waterways

Posted on 10/30/2023

There's no better way to embrace your passion for travel than by embarking on an unforgettable journey with Avalon Waterways. Here are a handful of benefits of choosing an Avalon cruise for your next adventure.


1. Unparalleled River Cruise Experiences

Avalon Waterways allows you to explore some of the world's most iconic waterways, including the Rhine, Danube, Rhône, Moselle, Seine, and Mekong. Imagine waking up to breathtaking views of medieval castles, picturesque villages, and lush vineyards right outside your window. Our cruises offer an intimate and immersive way to experience the heart of Europe, Asia, and beyond.

2. Better by Design. It Just Doesn’t Get Any Suiter

There’s a reason our ships are the critics’ darlings and favorites among our most discerning guests. Our boutique-hotel-inspired Panorama Suites feature the industry’s only Open-Air Balconies with the widest-opening windows in cruising and decadent Comfort Collection beds that face the ever-changing scenery. These wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows open 7-feet wide in Europe and 11-feet wide in Southeast Asia … Wider than any other balconies in the industry.

3. Unrivaled Culinary Delights

Our expert chefs curate mouthwatering menus featuring locally sourced ingredients, allowing you to indulge in the flavors of each destination. Whether you're dining in the main restaurant or al fresco on the Sky Deck, every meal is a culinary adventure. From craft cocktails and regional wines to inspired menus and artisanal dishes, we fuel every gastronomical journey with a beautiful balance of local flavor and worldly flair. 

4. Guided Excursions with Expert Local Guides

We believe that travel is about more than just seeing the sights; it's about understanding the culture and history of the places you visit. That's why our cruises include a wide range of guided excursions led by expert local guides. Explore historic cities, visit iconic landmarks, and gain insight into the customs and traditions of the regions you traverse.

6. Smaller Ships, Bigger Experiences. Fewer People, More of Everything

Aboard our novel, award-winning Suite Ships, “crowd pleasing” is not in our vocabulary. In fact, we don’t like crowds at all. Instead, Avalon’s magnificently modern, best-in-class ships average just 150 guests – some much less – to give cruisers the space, the time and the attention they deserve on vacation. Cruising as the world has known it has sailed. At Avalon, we aim to please only our guests.
