View Our Fleet

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 SuitesSM, with the widest opening windows in river cruising, the industry’s only Open-Air BalconySM, 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.

We've mastered the art of blending luxury with comfort, and now—blurring the line between outside and in. Not only are our Panorama SuitesSM on our Suite ShipsSM 30% larger than the industry standard staterooms, our wall-to-wall and floor- to-ceiling windows open wider than any other, creating river cruising's only Open-Air BalconySM and an open invitation to discover and dream.

And speaking of dreaming in our Panorama SuitesSM, we've turned our beds to face the window, giving you a bed with a view for the sweetest visions ever. Even if you're a seasoned traveler, you've never seen Europe like this.

Small Details. Big Difference.

When it comes to the little touches, we think big—like your choice of firmness in our exclusive Comfort CollectionSM beds and pillows, the plushest of towels, L'Occitane® bath products atop marble countertops, premium spirits at the upscale bar, and rich Lavazza coffees in the Club Lounge. You deserve the best of everything when you're on vacation, including what you need to maintain your healthy lifestyle. On our ships, you'll enjoy a state-of-the-art fitness center, free bicycles for use in select ports, and a bubbling whirlpool on the Sky Deck awaiting your return.

Intimate Cruising at Its Best


Our incredible Suite Ships® in Asia accommodate just 36 guests for a more exclusive experience. Each ship has been meticulously crafted to offer all the modern features you expect, while retaining the unique character and charm of your destination.

While the maximum number of guests may be small, our ships are not. Built as long and wide as other ships that carry twice as many guests, our onboard common areas never feel congested. From the air-conditioned Panorama Lounge to the open-air observation lounge, there is plenty of seating with inviting spots to relax. Plus, our lounges are located at the front of the ship, not the back, so no matter where you choose to relax, you’ll always have a great view.
