Avalon have the youngest fleet of River Cruises in Europe (as I type). Their ships are elegant and contemporary in style. Avalon tell us that their River Cruises include ‘just about everything’.

What makes Avalon Waterways Unique?

Each cruise includes a special dinner prepared by a local chef. Room with a view - they have positioned the beds in your cabin allowing you to watch the passing riverscapes from the comfort of your Comfort Collection Bed (sm). 80% of the Suite ship staterooms are Panorama Suites (unlike many other cruiselines) and these are 30% larger than the Industry Standard. The Open-Air Balcony is an Avalon Exclusive - slide the doors open and feel like you are sitting ‘outside’ as you take in the stunning views of castle ruins, vineyards and ancient cities. During the summer clients can enjoy grilled lunches at the open-air Sky Bistro - what could be nicer than soaking up a destination whilst enjoying food prepared by the local chef. Check out their Avalon Cruises App and get the latest brochures and information straight to your iPad.
