Avalon River Cruises

A member of the Globus family of brands, Avalon Waterways operates river cruises aboard sleek ships with state-of-the-art engineering that allows for smooth, comfortable sailing.

Passengers can relax in comfort in their spacious staterooms featuring satellite television, private bathrooms and hotel-style beds with Egyptian cotton sheets. Each ship highlights a variety of resort-style amenities, including gourmet dining, a six-person whirlpool and quality entertainment from local musicians. Panoramic picture windows on every ship provide magnificent views of passing landscapes.

Avalon ships have English-speaking crews, and while the ship is in port, expert guides point out famous tourist spots as well as hidden gems. Guided sightseeing tours are included as part of your cruise, but you can also explore on your own if you prefer.

  • Avalon Waterways offers river cruises in Europe, Peru, Southeast Asia and China.
  • River cruises are rated according to the quality of the vessel and its accommodations, the number of included amenities and activities both on and off the ship, the class of hotels used for land portions of itineraries, and the level of service delivered. Avalon river cruises are categorized as first class or deluxe on the industry rating scale (budget, first class and deluxe).
