What better way is there to cruise to exotic destinations than with Avalon Waterways, an award-winning, fairly young cruise line that provides spacious accommodations, flawless service, exceptional shore excursions, affordable land packages, and a wide range of ethereal dining options to those who want to travel in style?

With its creation in 2004, Avalon Waterways has brought much innovation to the river cruising industry with its introduction of Open-Air Balconies, its Silent Drive System, and its Avalon Fresh dining options as well as the contemporary and Avalon Poetry's Fitness Centercomfortable design of their ships. As partners with Globus and Monograms, two of their independent travel sister companies, Avalon Waterways can truly provide you with an incredible traveling experience to Europe, Asia and South America.

Shore Excursions

Avalon Waterways offers more unique discovery options (over 120 itineraries) than any other cruise line, and thanks to its award-winning land program and expert Certified Local Guides, you’re sure to have an unforgettable adventure.

With daily port lectures, VIP access to key destinations and optional guided bicycle tours, as well as the ability to set your own pace for the guided tours, you can customize your time onshore to a way that best suits you. Guided sightseeing is available in every port and you have three paces to choose from: leisurely, traditional or independent:
  • Leisurely sightseeing is a great way to see the highlights of the destination in an unhurried manner.

  • With traditional sightseeing, you can visit a larger number of sites at a slightly faster pace. Both of these pace options are led by a certified local guide who will share his or her knowledge with you.

  • Independent sightseeing enables you to explore at your own pace, picking and choosing what you see and where you go, without missing out on the guide’s valuable knowledge thanks to the headsets that Avalon Waterways provides.
No matter what pace you choose, you can expect to find yourself immersed in hands-on local culture – for example, you could enjoy a German-inspired lunch of authentic sausage and beer or sample wines that were produced at a local vineyard. If an absolute in-depth vacation is what you’re Avalon Waterways Specialistseeking, you may be able to combine your Avalon Waterways cruise with a land package by Globus or Monograms.

Why Choose Avalon Waterways?

Personalized Service
When cruising with Avalon Waterways, you’ll discover that their level of personalized service is unmatchable. From the second you step aboard you will be embodied with a welcoming spirit from your cabin steward all the way to the ship’s captain and everyone in between. Whether you want to order breakfast room service, throw a private suite cocktail party or enhance your cruise by purchasing an Avalon Poetry's Dining RoomAvalon Celebration Package, you can count on Avalon Waterways’ staff to be professional, approachable and impeccably helpful.

Inspired Dining
When it comes to cuisine, Avalon Waterways is devoted to serving up fresh, flavorful and locally-inspired dishes overseen by executive chef Joerg Penneke. From the Welcome Dinner all the way to the Farewell Gala Dinner, you can enjoy unique and exquisite plates such as green pea cappuccino soup and fillet de perche as well as traditional Western favorites like French onion soup, salmon and Caesar salad. You will also discover fresh and healthy options thanks to Avalon Fresh, including vegetarian and vegan selections.

There are many dining venues and options to choose from. Breakfast is available as early as 6 a.m. (with a late-riser option at 8:30 a.m.) and night fare is available all the way up until around 10:30 p.m. Most ships offer al fresco and light lunches at the bistros, extravagant four-course meals in the main dining room, continental breakfasts, lunch buffets, and a la carte dining as well as afternoon tea with sweet refreshments. All venues are free, so the choice is simply up to you. With breakfast, you can enjoy complimentary juice and sparkling wine, followed by complimentary soft drinks, beer and professionally-selected wines with lunch and dinner.

Inspired Accommodations
Accommodations aboard all Avalon Waterways ships are the ultimate ticket to relaxation and their goal is to make you feel as free as possible, rather than confined. The minimum stateroom size on all Avalon Waterways ships is 172-square feet. On every Suite Ship, you’ll discover that the 200-square foot Panorama Suites are 30% larger than the average river cruising stateroom. 70% of the beds on the Avalon Europe fleet face the window so that you can truly relax and enjoy the passing countryside.

12 of the fleet’s ships feature two full decks of suites with Open-Air Balconies, which are wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows that measure 11’x7’ and enable you to invite the weather in rather than leave the comfort of your stateroom. These windows are the only of their kind in all of river cruising. Every stateroom and suite are tastefully designed with endless features and amenities that will make you feel like you’re staying in a five-star luxury hotel.

What's Included?
With Avalon Waterways, you’ll find many great onboard amenities right at your fingertips. There is complimentary wi-fi throughout the ships so you can easily stay in touch with others back home. If you’re looking to kick back and relax, you can take advantage of the covered observation lounges or have fun on the top decks where you will find shade awnings, premium lounges, whirlpools and game areas.

You’ll also discover a fitness center, hair salon, library, club, main lounge and self-serve coffee, tea and hot chocolate station on every ship. Finally, you are invited to enjoy local onboard entertainment, which usually consists of local dance and music performances. If you need anything, you can count on the friendly English-speaking crew and your Cruise Director, who are ready to help you with anything you need.

Casual, yet Elegant
Although their ships and accommodations are quite elegant, there is a fairly casual dress code on an 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 if you 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 added two new 36-guest Suite Ships to its fleet, including Avalon Saigon, which will sail along the Mekong River, in 2018. Avalon Saigon features 18 245-square foot suites with Open-Air Balconies and Comfort Collection Beds. Additionally, Avalon Waterways plans to add 16 new Christmas cruise itineraries, ranging from 5 to 15 days, for its 2018 Suite Ship voyages.

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 varAvalon Felicityiety 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.

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!
