Cruising Elevated

For travellers who don’t follow the herd… those who always forge their own path and have a distinct perspective of looking at the world, Avalon Waterways presents a river cruise experience with expansive views and wider perspectives. A cruise where our traveller’s vision leads the way.

Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway past Europe’s rolling, vine-clad countryside or a cultural, in-depth exploration of Southeast Asia, Egypt or South America, we invite you to see the world your way. Expansive. Unhindered. Utterly unique.

The widest view in the whole wide world

No other fleet of river cruise ships offers you a view of the world like Avalon Suite Ships,® featuring Avalon Panorama SuitesSM. Thirty percent larger than the industry standard, they’re actually river cruising’s only Open–Air BalconySM — with nothing between you and the view. While other river cruise cabins are designed with beds against a wall for a view of another wall, our Comfort Collection BedsSM actually faces the view with the widest-opening, wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows in river cruising. Think of it as a view with a room!

Cruisers can be choosers

No two travellers are alike—so Avalon would never expect you to enjoy the same cruise experiences as everyone else. Whether you like to paddle a kayak or paint a canvas, each day on an Avalon river cruise is an adventure of the mind, heart, or heart rate if you prefer. So, go ahead, pick up a paintbrush, a paddle, or the perfect vintage. The possibilities are as wide open as the views.

Avalon Your Way

How many times have you thought, “I wish we could stay longer?” Avalon makes it easy to seamlessly add days and nights in a variety of destinations before or after your river cruise. We take care of all the details, from ship-to-hotel and hotel-to-ship transfers, transportation between cities, superior hotel accommodations, and guided sightseeing with plenty of optional excursions and free time to customize your experience. From Budapest to Barcelona, from Milan to Marseille, or from London to Lucerne, you can spend a little or a lot more time getting to know the destinations that call to you.

Commitment to Sustainability

For nearly a century, the Globus family of brands has shed light on the world’s most fascinating places and people – allowing travellers to bask in their glory, intrigue, and wonder. As we explore ancient pathways, historic hallways, and storied sidewalks of the world around us, we gain deeper knowledge, compassion, and understanding of the world and its people than ever before. By partnering with like-minded organizations that care for our planet and the people and places we cherish, we’re committed to playing our part in advancing causes through conservation, preservation, and humanitarian partnerships.

Single Supplement Policy

Avalon Waterways celebrates solo cruisers by waiving the single supplement on most Europe departures and select sailings on the Mekong in Southeast Asia.
