The line’s new Suite Ships boast some of the finest accommodation in the river cruise industry, with large Panorama Suites offering maximum space as well as open-air balconies designed to make guests feel at home throughout their voyage.

 

Dining

Avalon Waterways understands that cuisine is an important part of the river cruise experience, which is why every meal on-board is lovingly crafted using only the finest and freshest ingredient to reflect the culture and culinary tastes of each destination on your itinerary. Whether you are hoping for a wonderful buffet selection, al fresco dining or a simple light lunch, you will find it aboard an Avalon river cruise ship, alongside regional wines selected to perfectly complement your dining experience.

 

Facilities

Each ship in Avalon’s impressive fleet is brimming with fabulous amenities and entertainment to keep guests occupied and entertained as they cruise from port to port. On a sunny day in Europe you could head up to the Sky Deck to relax in a sun lounger or in the whirlpool. Or if the weather turns, why not enjoy a good book at the on-board library, or surf the web at Internet Corner? Anyone who loves to look and feel their best will also appreciate the on-board fitness centre and hair salon, where you can work out using state-of-the-art gym equipment or try a new look.

On top of all this, on-board restaurants, bars and lounges offer the ideal place to enjoy a marvellous meal or relax with a drink and chat with like-minded guests. Avalon Waterways' incredible ships offer plenty for guests to enjoy, creating an on-board experience as memorable as time spent on land.
