A New Adventure Awaits Aboard Avalon Waterways Cruises

There's more to countries than their coastline. Dare to delve deeper with an Avalon Waterways cruise. Onboard one of Avalon's 15 river vessels, you'll experience luxury on the waters as you prepare for exciting shore-side journeys and unforgettable excursions. Your cruise ship is like a floating hotel – providing exceptional comfort and gorgeous accommodations with views that constantly shift with your surroundings. Like any renowned hotel, you'll enjoy exquisite cuisine – in addition to great conversation in an intimate, personal setting.

Avalon boasts gorgeously constructed staterooms – all with a balcony – that spare no detail.

Functioning all together, it's a combination that needs to be experienced to be truly understood. Avalon Waterways cruises deliver a new level of freedom and comfort.

While you're on the river, take advantage of enrichment programs to delight the mind and broaden your understanding of the region you're traversing. Through Avalon's wide network of lecturers, you'll enjoy discussion and presentations from Egyptologists while traveling the Nile River, naturalists while visiting the Galápagos, cruise directors in Europe Southeast Asia and China, and special guest speakers throughout your journey. Once your hunger for knowledge is satisfied, indulge in world-class dining at the Avalon Panorama. Breakfasts are lavish and expansive, with complimentary sparkling wine and continental breakfast served in your stateroom upon request. Delight in extravagant lunches, buffets, and a multi-course dinner along with wine, soft drinks, and beer – all complimentary, of course.

Avalon Cruises will bring you to unique destinations throughout Europe, Egypt, China, and Southeast Asia. Enjoy bicycling, walking, and guided tours, as well as one-of-a-kind performances.
