All venues are free, so the choice is simply up to you. With breakfast, you can enjoy complimentary juice and sparkling wine, followed by complimentary soft drinks, beer and professionally-selected wines with lunch and dinner.

Inspired Accommodations

Accommodations aboard all Avalon Waterways ships are the ultimate ticket to relaxation and their goal is to make you feel as free as possible, rather than confined. The minimum stateroom size on all Avalon Waterways ships is 172-square feet. On every Suite Ship, you’ll discover that the 200-square foot Panorama Suites are 30% larger than the average river cruising stateroom. 70% of the beds on the Avalon Europe fleet face the window so that you can truly relax and enjoy the passing countryside. 12 of the fleet’s ships feature two full decks of suites with Open-Air Balconies, which are wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows that measure 11’x7’ and enable you to invite the weather in rather than leave the comfort of your stateroom. Wall-to-wall panoramic windows onboard <i>Avalon Aria</i>.These windows are the only of their kind in all of river cruising. Every stateroom and suite are tastefully designed with endless features and amenities that will make you feel like you’re staying in a five-star luxury hotel.

What's Included?

With Avalon Waterways, you’ll find many great onboard amenities right at your fingertips. There is complimentary wi-fi throughout the ships so you can easily stay in touch with others back home. If you’re looking to kick back and relax, you can take advantage of the covered observation lounges or have fun on the top decks where you will find shade awnings, premium lounges, whirlpools and game areas. You’ll also discover a fitness center, hair salon, library, club, main lounge and self-serve coffee, tea and hot chocolate station on every ship. Finally, you are invited to enjoy local onboard entertainment, which usually consists of local dance and music performances. If you need anything, you can count on the friendly English-speaking crew and your Cruise Director, who are ready to help you with anything you need.

Casual, yet Elegant

Although their ships and accommodations are quite elegant, there is a fairly casual dress code on an Avalon Waterways cruise. For instance, during dinner, casual attire such as open-neck shirts, slacks and dresses are just fine. However, coats and ties may be worn if you would like to do so, and there are typically a couple of dressy (but not formal) evenings during the cruise (such as the Captain’s Welcome and Farewell Dinners).

What’s New for Avalon Waterways?

Avalon Waterways plans to add two new 36-guest Suite Ships to its fleet, including Avalon Saigon, which will sail along the Mekong River, by 2019. Avalon Saigon will feature 18 245-square foot suites with Open-Air Balconies <i>Avalon Artistry II</i>, one of Avalon's new Suite Ships sailing on the Danube, Rhine & beyond.and Comfort Collection Beds. Additionally, Avalon Waterways plans to add 16 new Christmas cruise itineraries, ranging from 5 to 15 days, for its 2018 Suite Ship voyages.

Avalon Waterways has been continually adding new vessels to their ever-expanding young fleet of luxury river cruise ships. 2015 debuts included Avalon Tranquility II, and Avalon Tapestry II. This followed the 2014 debuts of Avalon Poetry II, Avalon Impression, Avalon Illumination, and Avalon Siem Reap.

Two new vessels joined that Avalon Waterways fleet in 2013. Avalon Artistry II launched with the same elegance and tradition of her sister ship, Avalon Artistry. Avalon Expression also debuted during 2013. Both ships offer a nice variety of river cruise itineraries in Central Europe. A couple of sister ships to Avalon Panorama, Avalon Visionary and Avalon Vista are expected to debut during the Spring of 2012 for Avalon Waterways. Both ships will offer cruises in the Rhine, Main and Danube Rivers.

In 2011, Avalon Waterways debuted a truly innovative river cruise ship, Avalon Panorama. This magnificent vessel was a new class of ship, and was billed by Avalon as being the river cruise industry’s first “Suite Ship” (as it has two full decks of suites). This ship features 64 newly designed Panorama Suites, each with 200-square feet (30% larger than the industry standard) of living space and a wall-to-wall panoramic window. When opened, this floor-to-ceiling window is nearly 11’ x 7’ and transforms the entire suite into the industry’s first open-air balcony!
