Avalon Waterways

With larger staterooms and deluxe hotel-style amenities, experience a new kind of River Cruising with Avalon.
Avalon Waterways

Avalon Waterways – an internationally renowned river cruise line was originally founded as a rowboat transporting goods across Lake Lugano in Switzerland in 1928. Today, Avalon Waterways’ royal-blue river cruisers take passengers to top destinations along European and Asian rivers. A cruise holiday with Avalon Waterways is guaranteed be a trip of a lifetime with cruise ports in Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, the Galapagos Islands and the Peruvian Amazon.

Avalon Waterways is not only famous for its action packed river cruise itineraries but for their Panorama-style ‘Suite Ships’ too. One of such ships is Avalon Panorama. Debuting in 2011 with two decks full of ‘Panorama Suites’ measuring at 18,5m² each, Avalon Panorama was a pioneer of river cruise ships. Every Suite comes with Avalon Waterways’ signature ‘Open Air Balcony’ – a French balcony opening from one wall to another, turning a Suite into one giant veranda. If you would like plenty of space and luxurious comfort on your river cruise holiday, Avalon Waterways is the cruise line for you.
