Avalon River cruises

New Ships, New Suite Ships, See the Sights the Way You Prefer; Indulge In Delectable Recipes By True Culinary Artisans; Make Your Cruise Exclusively Yours. These are the staples of Avalon Waterways, which were founded on the ideal that the only opinion that matters is yours.  Avalon Waterways is owned by the Globus Family of Brands, who have been taking travelers around the world for over 80 years.

Avalon River Cruises has taken a radically different approach to designing their vessels beginning with the accommodations. Rather than redesigning existing vessels, instead Avalon designed their Suite Ships with smart use of space & panoramic views, making your experience more relaxing, more comfortable, & more enjoyable. Being the youngest award-winning fleet on European waterways means showing up the rest with larger staterooms, innovative technologies, inspired designs, and high-end features & services.
