Avalon Waterways

When it was created in 2004, the goal of Avalon Waterways was to provide luxurious river cruises on innovative, new ships, with spacious accommodations and affordable land packages that would perfectly compliment their cruise itineraries. They sure have done just that, as their young fleet has already won Avalon many prestigious awards. Among the innovations that they've brought to the river cruising world have been the introduction of floor-to-ceiling windows in staterooms, larger accommodations than the industry standard, Avalon Poetry's Fitness Centerand their Silent Drive System (SDS), which ensures that their passengers have the most quiet cruise experience possible.

The quick success of Avalon Waterways was certainly helped along through the fact that they're part of the much acclaimed Globus family of brands. Globus, one of Avalon's sister companies, is one of the world's premier land tour operators. Those looking for a truly in-depth vacation, by both land and sea, should be happy to learn that many of Avalon Waterways' cruises can be booked in combination with a Globus (or Monograms, another sister company that specializes in independent travel) land package.

Possible destinations that one can take an Avalon Waterways cruise are the historic rivers of Europe, Asia and South America, including the exotic waters of the Galapagos Islands. Avalon Waterways SpecialistThere are over 120 itineraries that you can choose from! Thanks to Avalon's relationship with Globus, they're able to offer inspired enrichment, through guided sightseeing tours (complete with headsets), daily port lectures and VIP access into key destinations.

Avalon Waterways offers a limited selection of interesting and unique theme cruises aboard their intimate vessels, giving travelers the opportunity to mingle with others that share a similar passion, and to learn more through presentations by experts while on the cruise. The topics of some of their theme cruises are: Wine; Music; Art & Impressionists; Festive & Christmas; Oberammergau Passion Play; and President's River Cruise (featuring the President of Avalon Waterways sailing on that particular cruise).

Why Choose Avalon Waterways?

Inspired Cruising
Avalon Waterways takes pride in providing river cruises that take place on ships with an inspired design, featuring on board enhancements that include staterooms with deluxe woven carpeting, flowers, marble bathrooms, panoramic views and Avalon Poetry's Dining Roompremium bedding. Avalon also offers inspired dining, with flexible and personalized meals that feature local cuisines of the areas being visited (prepared by top European chefs), using local ingredients and serving regional wines, beers and soft drinks.

Great Amenities Included
While on Avalon Waterways' Europe river cruises, a choice of complimentary wine, beer or soft drinks is included with dinner. In Europe and in the Galapagos Islands, coffee and tea are available free of charge throughout the day. On an Avalon China river cruise, sodas are included during lunch and dinner. Such included amenities adds to the already fabulous value that an Avalon river cruise offers.

Casual, yet Elegant
Although their ships and accommodations are quite elegant, there is a fairly casual dress code on a Avalon Waterways cruise. For instance, during dinner, casual attire such as open-neck shirts, slacks and dresses are just fine. However, coats and ties may be worn by guests that would like to do so, and there are typically a couple of dressy (but not formal) evenings during the cruise (such as the Captain's Welcome and Farewell Dinners).

What's New for Avalon Waterways?

Avalon Waterways has been continually adding new vessels to their ever-expanding young fleet of luxury river cruise ships. 2015 debuts included Avalon Tranquility II, Avalon Tapestry II, and Avalon Myanmar. This followed the 2014 debuts of Avalon Poetry II, Avalon Impression, Avalon Illumination, and Avalon Siem Reap.

Two new vessels joined the Avalon Waterways fleet in 2013. Avalon Artistry II launched with the same elegance and tradition of her sister ship, Avalon Artistry. Avalon Expression also debuted during 2013. Both ships offer a nice variety of river cruise itineraries in Central Europe.

A couple of sister ships to Avalon Panorama, Avalon Visionary and Avalon Vista are excepted to debut during the Spring of 2012 for Avalon Waterways. Both ships will offer cruises in the Rhine, Main and Danube Rivers.
Avalon Felicity
In 2011, Avalon Waterways debuted a truly innovative river cruise ship, Avalon Panorama. This magnificent vessel was a new class of ship, and was billed by Avalon as being the river cruise industry's first "Suite Ship" (as it has two full decks of suites). This ship features 64 newly designed Panorama Suites, each with 200-square feet (30% larger than the industry standard) of living space and a wall-to-wall panoramic window. When opened, this floor-to-ceiling window is be nearly 11' x 7', and transforms the entire suite into the industry's first Open-Air Balcony!
