Avalon Waterways

Avalon Waterways

Avalon Waterways is renowned worldwide for their extravagant and personalised river cruises. With more than 80 years’ experience refining their ships and tailoring the perfect holiday itineraries, Avalon Waterways have become the experts in river cruising and travel. A whole new cruising experience altogether, Avalon Waterways has embraced everything this travel style has to offer and designed their state-of-the-art ships around river cruising, including the introduction of floor-to-ceiling windows and gorgeous French balconies on two decks of every vessel.

The unique experience you get with Avalon is the use of smaller ships, ensuring personalised service and absolutely no crowd, no lines and no wait times! With shore excursions included within your fare, experiencing the beauty of your destination has never been easier. 

While the ships may be smaller, the rooms certainly aren’t. Avalon Waterways’ unique fleet of Suite Ships include luxurious staterooms that are 15% larger than industry standard, and Panorama Suites that are 30% larger than industry standard. Most rooms come with their own open-air balconies, and every guest is guaranteed an outside cabin, so you can take in the magnificent views whenever you like. Other luxuries include large private bathrooms, premium bath products, ample closet space and a flat-screen TV in every room. Enjoy complimentary access to Wi-Fi, regional wines and beers, a fitness centre, hair salon and more.

Whether you’re looking to cruise in Europe, China, North Africa or the Galapagos Islands, Avalon Waterways is your personal guide through some of the most exotic destinations on earth.

While cruising is a great idea for adults, children tend to get cabin fever and become restless. With no special amenities or activities for kids on board, Avalon cruises are not recommended for children. For the safety and enjoyment of passengers, children under eight years of age are typically too young to fully enjoy a cruise vacation, and are not accepted aboard Avalon ships.


Avalon understands that a good cruise experience starts with luxury suites and fine dining. Starting with the highest quality and locally-sourced ingredients and combined with recipes crafted by true culinary masters, you and your taste buds will be taken on an epic journey. Whether you’d prefer to try the local cuisine, or tuck into more familiar Western-style dishes, the choice is yours, and it’s all included in your fare, even the 5-course welcome and farewell dinners available on every Avalon cruise.
