Jump ship to the liberating world of Avalon.

The best things in life are free. Floating through time and timeless scenery is no doubt one of the most luxurious ways to see the world. Yet on an Avalon cruise, we believe the greatest luxury is freedom – the freedom to wake up to a world of possibilities, the freedom to personally design your days of discovery and the freedom to pursue your passions at your desired pace. Avalon goes beyond the one-size-fits-all itineraries and traditional sightseeing of other cruise lines to offer engaging new ways to see the Old World. 

Our whim-powered cruising philosophy paired with an exciting menu of included Avalon Choice excursions allows you to take full advantage of “me” time and free time without charging you extra. And to complement this free-to-be-and-see cruising style, we also offer complimentary happy hour, bicycles and a host of other freebies and goodies you won’t find on other cruise ships. Whether you’re contemplating a break from classic cruising or another river cruise line, come learn the ropes of Avalon where there are no strings attached.

    Free falling.

    Excursions Included. The greatest days begin with a wide-open world of possibilities and a blank canvas to colour as we please. Avalon serves up an exciting menu of included Avalon Choice excursions that put you in pursuit of history, mystery, culture, and cuisine. But we don't stop there.  Our no-one-does-it-like-this “Active & Discovery” itineraries inspire you to fall in love with the world in new, “you” ways with a choice of at least three (3!) free excursions every day of your vacation! All for the same price as a traditional cruise.

    Free Fare.

    Indulgent Dining. Break free from conventional cruise cuisine and dine as you like, when you like, where you like–always included. Whether you opt for a sumptuous four-course dinner or a lighter tasting menu, hand-crafted excellence is always on the menu. Where and when you choose to indulge in your preferred cuisine is also up to you. In the mood for the glass-walled Panorama Dining Room, the coziness of the Panorama Bistro, the breeziness of the Sky Grill, or the simple allure of al fresco? Your table – or picnic basket – is ready when you are.

Offering you the perfect blend of elegance and ease, our dreamy Panorama Suites® feature he industry’s only Open-Air Balconies with the widest-opening windows in cruising.  We've blurred the lines between outside and in with more space with nothing between you and the view. While other cruise cabins offer you a bed facing the wall, Avalon’s irresistible Comfort Collection beds face the wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling Panorama window for unfettered vantage point to soak in the world’s ever-changing scenery. We call it a view with a room!
