River Cruises from Avalon Waterways


There is nothing quite like river cruising, no matter who you cruise with, but there are some pretty big differences between river cruise companies. Starting with how they look at staterooms. At Avalon, we’ve taken a radically different approach to stateroom design than other river cruise lines. We didn’t compromise. We didn’t cut corners. We didn’t make our rooms an afterthought. Instead we designed our Suite ShipsSM with an attention to detail river cruising has never seen before. We brought innovation, imagination and a relentless desire to create a smart use of space to our one-of-a-kind Panorama SuitesSM and that means a more comfortable, more relaxing, more enjoyable river cruise vacation for you.

AvalonWe invite you to come experience a cruise unlike any other.

Whether you select Germany, France or Switzerland, Avalon’s entire fleet is designed in contemporary elegance, with the largest staterooms on European waterways. Or maybe China, Vietnam or the Galápagos Islands are more your style.

At every turn, you’ll enjoy the luxury of choice – something you’ll only find with Avalon Choice cruising. From deciding what and where you eat. To selecting your room configuration and cruising style. From choosing your on-land discoveries and onboard enrichments, to making online, pre-sail customizations via MyAvalonSM every experience and every nuance – is yours.

Designed with the only opinion that matters: Yours.


The Suite Ships of Avalon have revolutionized the way people river cruise. Our spacious, innovative Panorama SuitesSM are some of the largest in river cruising, featuring our unique Open-Air Balconies® with giant wall-to-wall windows that provide spectacular views.

And once you  leave your room you will find that same attention to detail everywhere on board. You also find fewer people. Which means more space everywhere you go.

More space. Bigger views. More comfort.   http://www.suiteships.com/
