With a fleet of suite ships, Avalon Waterways offers not only the signature Avalon Deluxe Staterooms, but also Panorama Suites and Royal Suites for those who want it all. Comfort comes standard with all staterooms, and each is artfully prepared with European-style duvets, Egyptian cotton sheets, full private showers, flatscreen televisions and more.

Mealtime aboard Avalon Waterways is a part of the journey. With mouthwatering temptations certain to delight your palette, the chefs cater to your every craving. From the very first night when you dine on a five-course meal at the captain’s reception, you’ll discover that each meal is as tailored as the last. Dine under the pristine sky at the open-air bistro, or take advantage of cocktail hour at the Panorama Lounge. If traditional dining is more your cup of tea, enjoy the convenience of open seating in the dining room as you savor the elegant menus featuring local cuisine and delicacies.

Take the time to relax on the comfortable lounge chairs on the sky deck, or try your hand at the game area where you could play a life-sized game of chess. With complimentary Wi-Fi access throughout your Avalon Waterways cruise ship, convenience is at your fingertips 24/7. Immerse yourself in Avalon Waterways’ Culture & CruiseSM activities from wine and beer tastings, to demonstrations from local artists and even exciting entertainment from local performers.

Most European cruises extend between 7 and 14 nights, giving you the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the luxury and culture your Avalon Waterways River Cruise is will provide. Sail the waters of the Rhine, Main, Danube Rivers and more and soak in the culture of hotspots such as Prague and Vienna. Boasting the youngest and newest fleet of ships in Europe, Avalon Waterways is proud to include the brand new Avalon VistaSM and Avalon VisionarySM to its already impressive lineup of luxury ships. Take the time to indulge in cruise memories that will last a lifetime. With MileagePlus Cruise Awards your dream holiday is just moments away!
