Avalon Waterways® River Cruise Ships | Desirable Amenities

Thoughtfulness Included

You’ve Thought Of Everything!

That’s what we hear a lot from our guests. We know it’s the little things that make a big difference, as well as the amenities and thoughtful services you might not have thought of before. Happiness is our goal on an Avalon cruise, and we measure success in the wide smiles of our passengers. That’s because we want you to love river cruising as much as we do—with the best inclusions, views, and little touches you’ll find on every Avalon Suite Ship®.

Relaxed Luxury in Every Detail

Regional wine and beer with lunch and dinner. Onboard cultural presentations and local entertainment. Onshore excursions with expert Local Guides. AvalonGO mobile app with tips and guidance for free time navigation at your fingertips. The freedom to dine when and where you like on board with FlexDiningSM options—from formal seating in our glass-walled Panorama Dining Room to al fresco dishes at the Sky Grill to the casual ambience of the Sky Bistro. 24-hour refreshments with premium coffee and sweets, and complimentary continental breakfast delivered to late risers. While we like to pamper our Avalon guests, we’re never stuffy. Relaxed luxury is the Avalon difference.

Dream On before you Drift Off

After exploring the cities, castles, villages, and vineyards, the best part of your day just may be opening the door to your Avalon suite. With Comfort CollectionSM beds that actually face your wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling panoramic window, we’ve transformed your cabin into the industry’s only Open-Air BalconySM. You’ve got the world at your feet when you stretch out on the only beds in river cruising that face the view. With suites that are 30% larger than the industry standard, we’ve got a lot of room to blow our horn!
