With Avalon Waterways you will sail with the newest ships on the European Waterways, an impressive fleet that averages just two years in age. The “All Suites” ships mean you have a full-size sitting area is perfect for quiet moments alone - and spacious enough to host a private cocktail party with new friends. You'll enjoy amazing views outside your Wall-to-Wall Panoramic Window...and will appreciate how the unique Open-Air Balcony doesn't detract from your indoor square footage the way an exterior balcony does. Open the window and become one with the fresh breezes, fragrant riverbank vineyards, and delightful scenery that seems close enough to touch. 

With river vessels accommodating around 160 passengers, you will never wait in a long line to board or disembark. Smaller tours and intimate meal settings with open seating create a warm, personal atmosphere. And with every Avalon cruise, your entire experience from ship to shore is included – so you can look forward to extraordinary experiences but you'll never have to pay extra. From enriching excursions led by Certified Local Guides, to VIP access into the must-see sites…from sparkling wine with breakfast, to specialty coffees throughout the day, to regional beers and wines with dinner…from luxuriously spacious staterooms boasting floor-to-ceiling windows to free WiFi…... it’s all part of the package.

But despite the all inclusive arrangements, the new Avalon Choice program – the first of its kind in River Cruising – means you'll have now have the opportunity to choose what suits you best throughout your cruise, including sightseeing choices and dining options.
