Avalon Waterways CruisesBacked by more than 80 years' worth of travel-planning expertise and the proud operator of one of river cruising's youngest fleets, Avalon Waterways offers its guests highly immersive and highly personalized experiences throughout Europe, Asia, Egypt, and the Galapagos. From short sojourns and themed sailings to in-depth explorations lasting three weeks or longer, Avalon has compiled more than 120 all-inclusive options for travelers to choose from.
Life onboard is also replete with choices, including industry-first "Panorama Suites" (available aboard select vessels, these pioneering accommodations feature wall-to-wall windows that transform your entire living space into an open-air balcony), local-fare options with every meal, a vast enrichment program, and MyAvalonSM (which enables passengers to pre-register for and personalize a number of shipboard and shoreside needs).
Avalon continues to win accolades from experienced travelers and leading industry publications alike. 2011 examples include three Travel Weekly Magellan Awards as well as "Best New River Cruise Ship" honors from both Sherman's Travel and TravelAge West (Avalon Panorama and Avalon Luminary, respectively).
