Customize Your River Cruise
Avalon Waterways specializes in river cruises and small-ship cruising, and can boast the youngest fleet of ships in Europe – the oldest, the Avalon Tapestry, made its first voyage in 2006.
Though Avalon is known for travelling the great rivers of Europe in style and luxury, the small-ship cruises also allow more adventurous guests to explore the Nile and Lake Nasser in Egypt, the Yangtze in China, the Mekong in Southeast Asia, and the Galápagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador.
Avalon allows its guests to customize their cruise to their liking, adding sightseeing trips that travel at different paces, extra days in exotic locations, and even the simple freedom of choosing where to eat dinner.
Much of the onboard entertainment, like demonstrations and talks by local artisans and experts, centers on the culture of the ship’s ports of call, and the land and history that surround you as you sail. Avalon works with the tour company Globus to ensure there is always an expert on hand to answer any questions you have about your destination.
The ships are designed with elegance and comfort in mind, and at every turn travellers are greeted by another refined space in which to relax, have a drink with friends, or watch the Old World drift by.
In the mood for something a bit more active? Try one of the tours that go behind-the scenes of the ship. The suites on the Europe cruises are some of the most luxurious in the industry.
The Panorama Suite is 30% larger than the industry standard, and includes a wall-to-wall Panoramic Window, which opens to turn the entire room into a balcony. Even the standard suites come equipped with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors that practically allow you to step out into the scenery.
Perhaps the best reason to take an Avalon Waterways cruise is the excursions offered, allowing travellers to visit the most important cities of Europe. The excursions travel at three different paces – Leisurely, Traditional, and Essential – to allow visitors to see what they want at the speed they want.
All of Avalon’s tours are accompanied by a Certified Local Guide, who takes you to the most important parts of the city and shares genuine knowledge and experiences. In several ports, there is even an option to take a bicycle tour, seeing the city or the surrounding area in a safe and fun way, accompanied by a local expert.
The small-ship cruises Avalon Waterways offers are vastly different from those that travel the rivers of Europe, but they offer just as much. Some require flights to reach the ship’s more isolated origin and destination ports, which include Quito, Lima, Luxor, Chongqing, Yichang, Siem Reap, and Ho Chi Minh City. In the Galápagos and along the Nile, Cruise Directors are replaced by Naturalists and Egyptologists, giving an expert’s account of what guests will see and experience on their once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
