The view from your stateroom

Stylish, spacious and immensely comfortable, our beautiful staterooms exemplify the Avalon difference.

The world at your feet.

Not only are our Panorama Suites 30% bigger than the industry standard staterooms, our wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling windows open wider than any other, creating a unique open-air balcony – perfect for watching the sun set with a glass of regional wine from the bar. What's more, we've turned the majority of our beds to face the view, so you can experience serene riverbank vistas from the comfort of your bed.

Small details. Big difference.

When it comes to the little touches, we think big. Your choice of firmness in our exclusive Comfort Collection beds and pillows. The plush towels and L'Occitane aromatherapy products in your full-size marble bathroom. The rich Lavazza coffee in the Club Lounge, and premium spirits in the upscale bar. Because you deserve the best of everything on holiday.
