River Cruising from a unique point of view – yours

Solo Traveller and EarlyBird Offers

Gently rambling, eagerly flowing, wildly rushing… Europe’s legendary waterways have distinct personalities and long, fascinating histories. Whether you choose the enchanting Danube, the romantic Rhine, or one of the many other rivers, your perspective on this magnificent continent will be forever changed.

Part of the Globus family of brands, Avalon Waterways is backed by more than 88 years of experience in planning itineraries and guiding holidays around the world. As experts in travel, Avalon Waterways creates truly unique, award-winning river cruise holidays on one of Europe's youngest fleets.

Staterooms that enhance your experience

How you cruise is just as important as where. Avalon’s revolutionary Panorama Suites are 30% larger than the industry standard and feature huge wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows. They’re staterooms that open to create an Open-Air Balcony.

"What impressed me most was the thought and innovation Avalon has put in to its suite ships. They have been designed with their travellers in mind – spacious and stylish, sleek and contemporary, friendly and relaxed. They’ve thought of the important things like turning the bed to face the view, while also remembering the little things like making sure there’s good coffee on standby in the morning. This is really the only way to travel." – Deborah Hutton, Avalon Ambassador

Your voyage, your way

Avalon Choice lets you personalise your cruise daily at no extra cost. You decide what and where to eat on board, how you want to be entertained, the things you want to do on board, and even the style and pace of your included shore excursions (where available).

Authentic experiences

On board, Avalon's Local Favorites give you an enriching glimpse into your destination’s culture and traditions. Enjoy a wide range of activities, like food and wine tastings, demonstrations by local artisans, talks by experts about the areas through which you’re traveling, and lively performances by local entertainers.

The right inclusions

Your cruise experience is designed to include all the right things, but still leaves room for your own preferences. That’s why every Avalon cruise includes shore excursions with Local Guides; beer, and wine, with all onboard dinners; free Wi-Fi; a choice of dining options and venues; onboard enrichment activities; and outside staterooms to take it all in. Then, Avalon gives you choices to help you spend your time and money your way. It’s the difference between expensive all-inclusive options and just the right inclusiveness. With more expertly-led discovery options than any other cruise line, Avalon makes it possible for you to explore each port according to what intrigues you most.
