No other fleet of river cruise ships offers you a view of the world like Avalon Suite Ships,® featuring Avalon Panorama Suites. Thirty percent larger than the industry standard, they’re actually river cruising’s only Open–Air Balcony — with nothing between you and the view. While other river cruise cabins are designed with beds against a wall for a view of another wall, our Comfort Collection Beds actually face the view with the widest-opening, wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows in river cruising. Think of it as a view with a room!
Cruisers can be choosers:
No two travellers are alike—so Avalon would never expect you to enjoy the same cruise experiences as everyone else. Whether you like to paddle a kayak or paint a canvas, each day on an Avalon river cruise is an adventure of the mind, heart, or heart rate if you prefer. So, go ahead, and pick up a paintbrush, a paddle, or the perfect vintage. The possibilities are as wide open as the views.
Raise a glass at an Austrian wine tasting or raise your heart rate on a jogging tour of Cologne. From classic sightseeing in Paris to a classical concert in Vienna to a culinary walk in Lyon or a bicycle tour of the Dutch countryside — the possibilities are wide open on an Avalon river cruise. All at your pace, your preference, your way. We know there is more than one way to explore new destinations. Avalon includes an exceptional variety of excursions and activities so you can experience your cruise your way.
