On an Avalon Waterways river cruise, the possibilities are as wide open as the expansive views. Their entire fleet in Europe and Southeast Asia is completely comprised of Suite Ships®, each featuring Panorama Suites℠ with the widest opening windows in river cruising, the industry’s only Open-Air Balcony℠, and an inviting bed facing the ever-changing scenery. And beyond the widest views on the water is an open invitation to experience your destination in exceptional ways.
While Avalon Waterways have thoughtfully planned a captivating collection of nautical journeys along the world’s legendary rivers, your final itinerary is completely up to you. With their Your Way options, you can extend your holiday before and after your cruise with exciting stays in worldly cities. And with the exclusive onboard Avalon Choice® offering, you have your pick of the widest array of included excursions – from classic sightseeing to immersive discoveries to active adventures. With the flexibility to choose exactly what you wish to do before, during and after your cruise, Avalon offers the most desirable amenity of all – the freedom to cruise your way.
Another way Avalon Waterways have diversified the river cruising experience is with their Active & Discovery cruises which offer a deeper immersion into each destination with the most engaging activities imaginable. Perfect your brushstrokes in a local art studio or practice your J-strokes as you canoe along legendary riverbanks. Sear today’s catch in a lively cooking class or steer a bicycle through the scenic countryside. From inspiring food and wine tastings to invigorating jogging and hiking tours, their Active & Discovery river cruises along the Danube, Rhine and Rhône were designed for every type of doer.
We know we experience every destination through our tastebuds, and there is no shortage of temptations on an Avalon cruise. At every meal, their talented chefs prepare mouth-watering regional recipes – as well as Western favourites – using the freshest of local ingredients. How you wish to savour each bite, however, is up to you. Avalon FlexDining® puts you in control of your meals, allowing you to dine according to your cravings, mood and schedule. Late al fresco lunch after the sights? Early petite plate dinner before the theatre? With flexible seating and a variety of inspiring settings, the choice to dine early, late, in bed, or on deck – is yours.
