Unlike other cruise ships, most of our staterooms (971 of them) feature beds that face the windows and the incredible sights river cruising is famous for. In fact, two full decks on every Avalon Suite Ship® in Europe and Southeast Asia offer travellers a unique point-of-view: One where the view is the whole point.

Cruise Deals and Offers

Buffets, four course-dinners, Continental breakfasts, al fresco lunch at the Sky Bistro, delectable petite portions in the Panorama Bistro so you can sample a wide variety of foods... Avalon gives you lots of choices. And because we start with fresh, quality ingredients prepared by expert chefs, you'll look forward to each meal the same way you look forward to each port.

Think healthy food should also taste good? We do, too. And while Avalon cruises have always provided a selection of nutritious, delicious recipes, this year, we're really raising the bar with Avalon Fresh! We've teamed up with two of Europe's rising culinary stars, the Wrenkh brothers, to design an exciting collection of wholesome menu items so mouthwatering, you won't believe they're healthy. Our focus on fresh, local ingredients from small farms and producers comes together with a splash of innovation that will have you feeling great-as you're eating and throughout your day. We even offer gluten-free options.

Active Discovery

Avalon's latest addition to its menu of Special Interest Cruises truly energizes the river cruise experience. They're called Active Discovery cruises and that they are. In addition to cruising down the Danube, travelers can hike, bike and explore their way through the scenic and historic wonders of the world. On these exhilarating vacations, travelers don't just walk through time. They jog through it. They don't just float down rivers. They paddle down them. And when they've rightfully earned a slice of Linzer Torte, they bake one themselves.

These action-packed itineraries include the chance to discover an ice cave, take an archery lesson, and even tend to a farm, its crops and its critters – keeping travelers moving and engaged.

From ascending a mountain on a guided climb to descending into an underground salt mine, travelers and their sneakers can expect full immersion on these Active Discovery cruises.
