Ship Overview

The year 2013 saw the addition of another luxury suite ship to the impressive Avalon fleet. The Avalon Artistry II is aptly named for its artistry in terms of elegance and performance. From intimate dinners to large parties, it’s all possible with the additional 30% of space in the Panorama Suites, which extend to 200 square feet. The Panorama Suites occupy two full decks and a defining feature is the Panoramic Windows with a wall-to-wall reach. This seamlessly transforms an indoor space to an invigorating Open-Air Balcony. Luxury in being able to wake up to fresh river breezes and an ever-changing scene outside the window. The Avalon Artistry II is packed with creature comforts such as a fitness center, free computer access and Wi-Fi, and a Sky deck with best quality check chairs, a whirlpool and Sky Bistro.
