About Avalon Waterways

Introducing Avalon ChoiceSM Cruising, Customized to You.   Designed with the only opinion that matters: yours. Introducing an entirely new concept in river cruising. We didn't just design our cruises with you in mind. We developed them for you to design.   At every turn, you'll enjoy the luxury of choice — something you'll only find with Avalon ChoiceSM cruising. From deciding what and where you eat. To selecting your room configuration and cruising style. From choosing your on-land discoveries and onboard enrichments, to making online, pre-sail customizations via MyAvalonSM. Every experience and every nuance — is yours.   Avalon dining has always freed taste buds from the ordinary. And now — it frees you from restrictions. At every meal, you'll have the ability to choose from a multitude of dining experiences. All feature the highest-quality local ingredients, hand crafted by true culinary artisans. And all are included at no extra cost.   Choose from multiple venues — from the casual Panorama Bistro on our Suite Ships to our open-air Sky Bistro. From our elegant Main Dining Room to continental breakfast delivered to your own room. From a lighter nighttime fare to Afternoon Tea featuring tea, coffee and sweet treats. Choose to dine à la carte — selecting from a variety of options for each course. We always accommodate guests with dietary preferences. Choose from our exclusive culinary events — from a five-course welcome dinner, to special chef "tastings". Choose to experience the local culture — through delectable regional fare, or select gourmet options prepared for the Western palate.   We've done our due diligence pre-selecting Certified Local Guides who truly are the best in the world. But what you see and the pace in which you see it, is completely up to you. And the best part? Unlike other cruise operators, our preplanned discoveries are included at no extra charge to you. We even provide Nordic walking sticks for active guests looking for an extra spring in their step.   Excursion Type – Do you prefer a traditional guided tour or an alternative option? Would you enjoy a more in-depth view? Or one geared toward a special interest? With Avalon, the choice is yours. Sightseeing Pace – Are you up for exploring a wide variety of sights or do you prefer a more relaxed pace? Would you rather just focus on the essentials? Or see it all on your own? All are available with Avalon. Create Your Own – How about working with our Guest Services experts to design a customized sightseeing adventure planned perfectly for you? Avalon makes it easy.   We definitely didn't design our onboard entertainment for the indecisive. Day and night you'll be provided with a plethora of ways to have fun and be enlightened. Take in a performance by local musicians. Play a game in the lounge. Enjoy a behind-the scenes ship tour. Relax on the Sky Deck. Get acquainted with your destinations through Culture & Cruise events. Be pampered in our hair salon. Unwind with a movie. Or try out one of our many new venues for dining or lounging.   With Culture & CruiseSM we're bringing onshore culture – onboard to you. You can choose to take part in special experiences that enrich your trip with local chefs, musicians, artisans and experts.   Select Your Ship – New. Newer. Or Newest. Avalon continues to be the youngest fleet on the rivers of Europe. In 2013 we're thrilled to introduce two new Panorama Suite Ships — The Avalon ExpressionSM and the Avalon Artistry II® — setting the new standard for river cruising.   For our travelers, this means enjoying a ship experience designed with a forward-thinking approach, including all the modern touches, no matter which ship you choose:   Our entire fleet is designed in contemporary elegance, with the largest staterooms on the European waterways. Our ships feature the industry's biggest views – thanks to panoramic windows in our common areas and huge, floor-to-ceiling windows in nearly all of our staterooms. You're always treated to luxurious amenities, like premium bedding, Comfort Collection BedsSM and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout.   A World of Possibilities – Cruises & Itineraries With Avalon, you can choose from 4 continents. From more than 100 packages. From trips lasting 3 nights to 24 days. From cruise-only getaways to cruise-plus-land journeys. And from 5 amazing brand-new itineraries in 2013 – 4 in Europe and 1 in China.
