Avalon Waterways provide a laid-back and down-to-earth cruising experience along the rivers of Europe and beyond. The aim is to make you feel at home while on board and create a welcoming atmosphere. There’s a real emphasis on enrichment while you travel allowing guests to really immerse themselves in the region that are travelling through. The entertainment is low-key and tends to be destination focused. You’ll find your fellow guests relaxing in the bar with some unobtrusive live music provides a background soundtrack. The ships vary in size from the 128-guest Avalon Artistry II to the 166-guest Avalon Passion and the staterooms are surprisingly spacious. If you choose to upgrade to one of the Panoramic Suites on select cruise ships sailing through Europe, the beds face the floor-to-ceiling windows which open out to create an Open-Air BalconySM.
