If you want to see the world, cruise down its legendary rivers. If you want to see more of the world, look no further than Avalon Waterways. Our Suite Ships® feature one-of-a-kind Panorama SuitesSM, with the widest-opening windows in river cruising, the industry’s only Open-Air BalconySM, and beds facing the incredible views.
Beyond our wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows is a world just waiting to be discovered with Avalon’s unmatched choice of included excursions and activities. Whether you want to enjoy a guided walking tour of one of Europe’s great cities, join a cooking class or paddle a canoe, our Avalon Choice® selections of Classic, Discovery, and Active excursions offer a wide range of possibilities. When you prefer to explore on your own, we can help you with all the recommendations, information, and gear you need with our new Adventure Center and AvalonGO Mobile App. When it’s time to refuel, your onboard dining options are as wide open as your views, with our new FlexDining® choices. Rise and shine when you please, dine where and when you wish, or take a picnic lunch to enjoy on shore.
30% more space makes you feel 100% more comfortable. Over 80% of our staterooms in our Suite Ships® are 200-square foot Panorama Suites, 30% larger than the average stateroom. And at 172 square feet, our Deluxe Staterooms are still spacious, comfortable, and quiet (thank you, sound insulation!).
Stretch out on a luxurious bed that faces a wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling panoramic window, and your room is transformed into river cruising’s only Open-Air Balcony®—with nothing between you and the view. You can almost reach out and touch the changing landscapes and landmarks, castles and cathedrals, vineyards and villages, and scenic serenity. You’re not dreaming. You’re in your Panorama Suite® on an award-winning Avalon Suite Ship®. Let’s face it. Beds facing the view are worlds above the rest.
Tantalizing flavors to suit your distinct taste. When you travel for fresh perspectives, your dining experience should feel the same. Avalon delivers local flavor to the table with fresh and local ingredients our chefs use to create regional specialties as well as traditional favorites you love in a variety of inspired settings. Dine al fresco with a made-to-order lunch at the Sky Grill, enjoy an elegant four-course dinner in the glass-walled Panorama Dining Room, or sample a buffet of select specialties in the Panorama Bistro—always with regional fresh fare or the comfort foods you love.
Multiple Menys & Venues
With FlexDining® you choose your dining experience morning, noon, and night on our Suite Ships®. Up early or prefer to sleep in? No problem. Our Early and Late-Riser Continental breakfasts ensure you’re off to a great start. Whether it’s surrounded by breathtaking panoramic views in the Panorama Dining Room, an al fresco lunch at the Sky Bistro (weather permitting), or a casual light lunch or dinner in the Panorama Bistro, the choice is yours. And we never charge extra for these alternatives.
Experience all that Avalon has to offer in exotic locations like Southeast Asia, India, the Galapagos Islands, or the Peruvian Amazon. Join us to cruise on the Mekong through the heart of Vietnam and Cambodia, or on the Ganges in India for a tapestry of fascinating sights, colorful cultures, and ancient traditions. In South America, embark down one of the world’s vastly unexplored regions, the mighty Amazon, or explore the home of some of the world’s most fascinating animal life in the Galapagos Island. Explore in the company of expert Local Guides and Naturalist Guides for an exceptional experience only Avalon can deliver.
That’s what we hear a lot from our guests. We know it’s the little things that make a big difference, as well as the amenities and thoughtful services you might not have thought of before. Happiness is our goal on an Avalon cruise, and we measure success in the wide smiles of our passengers. That’s because we want you to love river cruising as much as we do—with the best inclusions, views, and little touches you’ll find on every Avalon Suite Ship®.
