Everyone Deserves a Suite View

There’s only one point of view on an Avalon Waterways® river cruise – the suite view. Our entire fleet in Europe and Southeast Asia is completely comprised of Suite Ships®, each featuring our Panorama Suites SM, with the widest opening windows in river cruising, the industry’s only Open-Air Balcony SM, and an inviting bed facing the ever-changing scenery. Wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling, our panoramic windows blur the line between outside and in, yet clearly present a world waiting to be explored however you please. Even if you’re a seasoned traveler, you’ve never seen, or experienced, a world like this.

SEE WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Voted Best Cabins in River Cruising by

There are cruise ships that sail various destinations and then there are cruise ships built specifically for destinations.

Gina Kramer, Cruise Critic Editor


The piece de resistance in the cabin, however, is the lack of a balcony. Not having an actual carved out balcony is just one of the things that Avalon does marvelously. Suites all boast an 11-foot floor-to-ceiling sliding glass door/window that opens 7-feet wide, which essentially makes your entire room a balcony. Pop a chair in front of the railing or lay in bed (which faces the water) for the view of your life and fresh air on your skin.

Elizabeth, Porthole Magazine

Whether you are single, widowed, or divorced—I say, "Get up, get dressed, and get out there!" After my husband passed away, life was not the same. But taking a cruise on the Danube at Christmas time (all the Christmas markets are magical) was truly the trip of a lifetime. It was life changing and saved me. The smile on my face won't go away and neither will all the wonderful memories I take with me and the newfound friends I have. I'll cherish this trip forever.
