Avalon Waterways® River Cruise Ships | Desirable Amenities

Thoughtful Amenities

Exclusive Meets Inclusive

Regional wine and beer with lunch and dinner. Onboard enrichment activities. Onshore excursions with Local Guides. Special onboard entertainment. A customized mobile app loaded with navigation and suggestions to make the most of your free time. An exclusive experience features all the right inclusions, yet still leaves room for personalization-like our FlexDiningSM options to give you the freedom to choose when and where you dine on board. From formal seating in our glass-walled dining room to more casual atmospheres perfect for a quick plate, our delicious dining options are as unique as you are. In addition to little luxuries like complimentary Wi-Fi and around-the-clock cappuccinos, Avalon gives you the greatest luxury of all-the freedom to customize your cruise with endless options and innovative tools.

The Avalon Difference is in the Details

When you're on vacation, you deserve the best of everything. You've earned it. With that in mind, we dedicate our full attention to even the smallest details. By leaving no stone unturned, we ensure you can enjoy the best river cruise possible. We’ll pack a picnic for you to carry on a leisurely bike ride, or point out the best cafes to sip wine and watch the world go by. Our attention to detail has caught the attention of many of the most prestigious awards in the industry, but your good impression is our greatest reward.
