Rooms with a View
The window of opportunity to see and experience the world just got a whole lot wider. Our beds actually face the view with the widest-opening, wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows in river cruising. Think of it as a room with a view!
Relaxed Luxury
Delight in the difference and comfort. Leaving the rules behind, but not the luxury. From free time to optional excursions, enjoy your cruise at your pace, your way.
Taste the World
Great food feeds your soul, fuels your passion, and shapes your memories. Taste decadent local delicacies, fresh regional wine and produce. On an Avalon cruise, dining is part of the journey.
Unpack Once
We've mastered the art of blending luxury with comfort. Unpack once and its smooth sailing as we share our welcoming spirit throughout the ship.

DREAMING DOESN'T STOP

Over the past few weeks, we have collectively shared the disappointment of delayed travel dreams. Because for passionate globetrotters like us, all travel is essential. While “Plan A” may have been waylaid and “Plan B” postponed, we can still move on to “Plan See.”
