See the World Your Way

Avalon Waterways invites you to see the world your way. Expansive. Unhindered. Utterly unique. For cruisers who don't follow the crowd — who forge their own path to experience the world in their own style, Avalon Waterways delivers a river cruise experience like no other. From the widest views on board to wider selections on shore, we believe the only way to cruise is your way.

Suite ShipsSM - The Avalon Fleet

In order to deliver a cruise unlike any other, we're constantly evolving the Avalon experience, adding intriguing features every year! So, what makes a Suite ShipSM so sweet? Our exclusive Panorama SuitesSM — exquisite accommodations with more space to stretch out and enjoy your cruise, innovative room configuration to highlight every view, and a huge Open–Air BalconySM that provides an indoor/outdoor seating area without sacrificing room space. Plus, we offer Avalon ChoiceSM ... for a uniquely customizable river cruise adventure.

Music to Our Ears

Singing our praises

While we were busy delivering first-rate service to our guests on Avalon Waterways, it seems a few people noticed. We're humbled and happy to share kudos we've received from some of the industry's most respected experts in river cruising, including readers and editors of Cruise Critic, USA Today, Conde Nast Traveler, and TravelAge West. It seems we've struck the right note with our award-winning Panorama Suites, Open-Air Balconies, Panorama Windows, exceptional shore excursions, and flexible dining options. But we're not ones to rest on our laurels. Our biggest reward is making our cruise guests feel happy — from the first throw of the bowlines to the last drop of the anchor. It's the Avalon difference, and it doesn't get much better than that!
