Discover the Avalon Difference

Welcome to river cruising - a new way of seeing the world that gives you the exceptional service and luxury of small-ship ocean cruising with intimacy, choice and attention to detail.

On an Avalon river cruise, we take care of everything. We host fewer passengers so we can offer a personal, intuitive service, whether it's the wine expert who remembers which vintage you enjoyed yesterday, the pillows you prefer on your bed, or the way you like your steak cooked at dinner.

Our spacious, elegant ships offer you the chance to explore each new horizon in sheer comfort, while our expert-led excursions bring each port of call to life - the moment you step off the ship.

Everyone deserves a suite view

There’s only one point of view on an Avalon Waterways® river cruise – the suite view. Our entire fleet in Europe and Southeast Asia is completely comprised of Suite Ships®, each featuring our 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. Wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling, our panoramic windows blur the line between outside and in, yet clearly present a world waiting to be explored however you please. 

Using our new 3D virtual tour, you can see exactly what you'll be seeing as you step aboard an award-winning Avalon Waterways Suite Ship. Use the link below to start your virtual tour of the Avalon Artistry II, one of the newest ships in our European Suite Ship fleet, and of the Avalon Saigon, part of our worldwide fleet.
