Who says you can't rise when you like, dine when you please, and explore as you wish? On an Avalon cruise, unforgiving schedules, inflexible itineraries, and strict dinner bells are tossed overboard, leaving you the freedom to do exactly as you please, when you please. Oodles of included excursions are on every cruise, from in-depth sightseeing to local discoveries and active pursuits...whatever floats your boat. Sail with us and one thing is certain - your stay is your way.
Changing your outlook can be a great thing. For Avalon, we wouldn't have it any other way. Our entire fleet of Suite Ships
(And thank you, by the way)
Cruise Critic named Avalon's staterooms the best in the business, and yes, we're blushing a bit. But it's only because we've taken such pride in bringing you river cruising's only Open-Air Balcony stateroom design, featuring beds with a view. Rest easy (literally) as you enjoy bigger views, more space and 24/7 access to open-air cruising. With Avalon, the views are as wide open as the possibilities.
Explore under your own steam with active pursuits through city and countryside while you pedal a bike, paddle a canoe, or put your jogging shoes on. Take a biking tour through Vienna, a jogging tour in Amsterdam, or a hiking tour to Count Dracula's prison tower in Hungary. Slow down the pace with leisurely guided e-bike tour and wine tasting in Avignon, or simply join your Avalon Adventure Host for a morning walk in Lyon. Your pace, your preference, your way!
