More About Asia River Cruises


At Avalon, we put your experience at the heart of every decision we make, which is why when other river cruise lines give you less of just about everything, we're busy figuring out how to give you more. It's a philosophy that's decidedly different. And decidedly better. It's what separates us from everyone else in river cruising. At Avalon, we see things differently.

Plus, we're proud to offer Avalon Choice® an exciting concept in river cruising that gives you the freedom to personalize your cruise from beginning to end.

More About Avalon Choice®
River Cruises with Inspired Design


Rivers built the world's most extraordinary cities - not oceans. Imagine floating through the sites and lights of Paris, sailing by windmills and tulips on your way to Amsterdam, or docking in the very heart of eclectic Budapest. Our European river cruises will have you meandering by hilltop castles, Roman ruins, lush vineyards, and quaint medieval villages - as well as stopping in other iconic destinations, like Prague, Zurich, the Cote d'Azur or Burgundy Wine Country. Or, if you're looking for an exotic flavor, take a look at our offerings along China's ancient Yangtze, through South East Asia's mystic Mekong or Irrawaddy, or to the natural wonders of the Galapagos Islands and the mighty Amazon.

Let us take you to the heart of the world – discovering places, not ports.
