ROCK THE
BOAT

Cruisers can be choosers.

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.

It's All About Your Outlook

Changing your outlook can be a great thing. For Avalon, we wouldn't have it any other way. Our entire fleet of Suite Ships® in Europe and Southeast Asia features incomparable Panorama SuitesSM with the widest windows in river cruising that transform your suite into our signature Open Air BalconySM. While other river cruise ships stick your bed against one wall only to face another wall, we've turned that idea on its head. With beds that actually face your wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows, you'll stretch out to the widest views in river cruising. So, go ahead, open wide and say, "Aaaahhh!"

"Cruise Compliment"

(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.
