Cruising with a View
Endless possibilities are opened up to passengers of Avalon Waterways along the world’s most stunning and legendary rivers.
And the views are actually unrivaled. Avalon’s Suite Ships feature incomparable Panorama Suites, with the widest opening windows in river cruising, period. They also boast the only Open-Air BalconySM in the industry, plus beds that face out for optimal views of the river and the amazing destinations that Avalon Waterways voyages to. Hit multiple cities throughout Europe by cruising down the Danube, the Rhine, and other incredible rivers, with destinations throughout Asia as well. Cruises to the Galápagos and the Amazon also make for an incredible South American adventure in river cruising.
Way more than the luxury onboard (and those impeccable views), these cruises are above all else vessels getting you to where you’re going, encouraging guests to take their adventures on land as well. Explore Europe’s most iconic cities, the most significant and world-renown temples in Asia, but most of all explore it all at your own pace and how you want to see it. As part of Avalon Choice®, you’re really in control of how you want to see the world. Take Avalon’s recommendations, information, and even gear from their Adventure Center and AvalonGO Mobile App, or go rogue on your own.
The one guarantee, whichever way you decide to experience it, is that with Avalon there will be more in view and more to do, with plenty of options for all different types of travelers, from those looking for a calm, slow pace, to adrenaline-seeking adventurers. The emphasis is on you being able to see the world your way.
As much as they want you to enjoy your time onboard, getting out of the house is always encouraged. How else will you truly see the beautiful world and the destination of your choice? With Avalon Choice®, the approach you take is yours, with a wide range of excursions from high to low intensity – you pick from the Classic, Discovery, and Active options.
For the active type, you can jog around Amsterdam, bike Vienna, hike a majestic mountain, and other adventures, all excursions included with your trip. Slower-paced discoveries can include experiences like painting classes, tastings, and other activities that keep the movement to a minimum.
An Avalon Active Discovery Cruise is perfect for travelers looking to truly immerse themselves in Europe, showcasing Europe’s history, culture, and beauty more in-depth, including visits to off-the-beaten-path gems, like a chocolate museum. These cruises intermingle the high intensity stuff with the low, a dynamic experience that won’t let you miss a beat.
Keeping it Fresh
Cuisine onboard is, in their words, “view to table,” a perfect spin on the farm-to-table concept they believe in, since views are sure to accompany every meal you have. Using only the freshest local ingredients, talented chefs create a culinary dream from breakfast to dinner. FlexDiningSM also allows you to eat the way (and when) you want to. This approach to dining dispels of strict seating times while also providing way more dining options. With plenty of casual spots to grab a bite, to elegant settings for a great sit-down meal, no matter where you go, locally-infused cuisine is guaranteed.
