Avalon has always provided river cruisers the most spacious staterooms in Europe. Their entire fleet features Avalon Deluxe Staterooms that are, on average, 15% larger than the competition. With the introduction of their trio of Panorama-style Suite Ships, they're not only offering cruisers their award-winning Avalon Deluxe Staterooms, they're featuring newly designed 200-square foot Panorama Suites (30% larger than the average stateroom) and 300-square foot Royal Suites, offering cruisers even more room to relax and take in 360-degree views of Europe.
Inspired by design, their ships are crafted to entice all five senses. Some enhancements, including deluxe woven carpeting, flowers, premium L'Occitane products and scented sticks in their staterooms are subtle. Other offerings, such as Avalon-branded premium bedding (Comfort Collection by AvalonSM), marble bathrooms as well as a perfect balance of warm interiors, natural lighting and panoramic views are distinctive and unexpected. Combined, all elements provide travellers with a unique feeling of space, freedom and comfort not found with any other river cruise line.
In addition to providing travellers the chance to immerse themselves in each destination they visit, Avalon Waterways helps them enjoy local cuisines, inspired by local ingredients and created by some of Europe's most highly skilled chefs, as well as regional wines on board their ships.
People cruise internationally for different reasons. Some go to learn about new cultures, some for inspiration and enrichment and others for a stress-free getaway. From adding distinct destinations and abbreviated cruises to their vacation portfolio to creating themed travel and pre- and post-cruise combination opportunities, Avalon has put together more than 120 all-inclusive experiences to fit luxury and budget-focused travellers, Boomers, GenXers and families wanting to experience Europe, Egypt, China, Southeast Asia and the Galápagos Islands.
Avalon's inspired, 360-degree, engaging cruise experiences afford travellers the chance to immerse themselves into a destination and culture thanks to award-winning land programs and world-class guides. Their Egyptologists (along the Nile), Naturalists (in the Galápagos), Cruise Directors (in Europe Southeast Asia and China) and special guest lecturers also offer them a vast onboard educational program, giving cruisers the chance to soak in the history and culture of a region as they drift from village to village or island to island.
