Cruise personalisation

Start sooner, stay longer. Avalon makes it easy to experience your holiday your way with seamless extension options before and after your cruise. Your Way offers added nights in a selection of destinations. From Budapest to Vienna, from Prague to Paris, you can spend a little or a lot more time getting to know more onshore with Your Way itineraries.

Avalon has designed included activities with a choice of experiences. We invite you to select the tours, activities, and events that interest you most, so you can experience your cruise your way. There are three types of included shore excursion on every Europe cruise:

Classic

Your local expert is ready to guide you through the history and heritage of local destinations. You’ll marvel at the legends, lore, and spectacular architecture of iconic and historic sites.

Active

Embark on energetic excursions to keep you in motion and on the go - from a guided jogging tour of Amsterdam, to biking, paddling, and hiking your way through scenic locales.

Discovery

We’ve found inspiring and interactive activities to speak to your interests - from cooking classes, to painting workshops - to immerse yourself in each culture you explore.

The adventure is up to you

Watching centuries of history slowly pass you by is an adventure in itself. But what if elevating your heart rate a few extra beats is more your speed? Meet your Avalon Adventure Host. In addition to included active excursions, your Adventure Host holds the gear, maps and guidance for optional and free-time pursuits on board and on shore.

Adventure Host

As one of Avalon Waterways’ new Adventure Hosts – now available on every Suite Ship in Europe – Hristo Stamenov spends his time helping travelers explore heart-pumping discoveries on and off the ship.

With help from Adventure Hosts like Hristo, Avalon guests can check out a bike (from onboard their Suite Ship) for a scenic ride through town. They can grab a Nordic walking stick and hike to a hillside vineyard or castle.  Or they can enjoy a complimentary fitness or strength and conditioning class – including yoga – on the Sky Deck or in the Panorama Lounge.
