There's only one point-of-view on an Avalon Waterways river cruise - the suite view. For the first time, our entire fleet in Europe is completely comprised of Suite Ships, each featuring our signature Panorama Suites with the widest opening windows in river cruising, the industry's only Open-Air Balcony and an inviting bed facing the ever-changing scenery on two full decks of every ship. Even seasoned travelers have never seen - or experienced - the world like this.
