More in view. More to do.

Welcome to Avalon Waterways river cruises.

If you want a unique window on the world, travel down its legendary rivers with Avalon Waterways. Our Suite Ships feature one-of-a-kind Panorama Suites, with the widest-opening windows in river cruising, the industry's only Open-Air Balcony and beds that face the incredible views.

On an Avalon cruise, everything is taken care of, including gratuities, all meals, flights and transfers, excursions and port fees, plus a private home pick-up service to take you to and from your UK airport. So if it's relaxation you're looking for, you've come to the right place.

A river cruise is a fantastic way to explore the world's most beautiful towns, villages and landmarks. Join an included excursion, plump for an optional guided visit, or explore on your own - that's the beauty of an Avalon river cruise.

Included in your Avalon cruise:

  • Private home pick-up service
    • A friendly driver will pick you up at your home, load your luggage for you and drive you to the airport. When you return, your private driver will be waiting for you in the arrivals lounge to take you home again.
  • Full-board dining
    • From the full breakfast of your choice, with Bucks Fizz and a dedicated egg station, to lunch, afternoon snacks, afternoon tea, dinner and late-night supper, you will be fully catered for all day.
  • Flights, transfers and accommodation
    • With a wide choice of regional airports, convenient flights are a given. Your luggage will be transferred from airport to ship and taken to your room, waiting for you when you arrive.
  • Excursions
    • At each port of call, a local guide will show you around to give you a first-hand, behind-the-scenes look at each destination.
  • Complimentary paired wine
    • You'll enjoy sommelier-selected regional wines at lunch and dinner, or beer if you prefer.
  • Gratuities
    • All tips for crew and staff are included, so you don't have to budget extra for tipping or worry about how much to give.
