Ship Overview

The river cruising industry’s transformation into an ultra luxury holiday experience happened sometime in the year 2011 when Avalon Waterways introduced the Avalon Panorama into its fleet. This well designed suite ship was the first among many to feature Wall-to-Wall windows in-room offering stunning views of the European riverside. The open air balcony from the suite lets you enjoy the fresh air from outside. Panorama Suites at about 200 sq. ft. is approximately thirty percent bigger than comparable ships in the industry, giving you a luxurious, comfortable living space. Some of the onboard features include Sky Bistro offering delicious food, whirlpool, a cool shade system on the deck, premium lounge seating on the Sky Deck, well equipped fitness centre, a reading library for all, free Wi-Fi internet and complementary use of computers in common areas.
