Avalon Waterways

Avalon Waterways offer a personalised river cruising experience, and with over 80 years experience in cruising itineraries and guided vacations, they are travel experts within the cruise industry. Avalon is the only river cruise operator that is still personally involved in their ship’s design, because they are constantly thinking of their guests and putting them first. Avalon Waterways is renowned for their refined elegance, attention to detail and state-of-the-art ships.

Avalon uses small ships, which means you receive a personalised service and absolutely no crowd. Each guest is guaranteed an outside cabin and most rooms have open-air balconies. Onboard you can travel the river systems of Europe, Asia, Egypt and the Galapagos Islands. And Avalon makes it easy for you to enjoy the beauty of these destinations, as they include shore excursions in the trip fare. With guided sightseeing tours and VIP access to popular sites, you’ll spend less time waiting in lines and more time immersing yourself in the local culture and natural beauty of your destination.


In addition to helping you immerse yourself in your destination with shore excursions, Avalon also helps you explore your destination through your tastebuds. Their onboard menus incorporate locally-sourced ingredients, and each meal has a local fare option. And, in keeping with their reputation for excellence, they offer five-course welcome and farewell dinners on every cruise, complimentary regional wines with dinner, and elegant sit-down meals created by some of Europe’s most skilled chefs.


Children over the age of eight are welcome on Avalon Waterway cruises, however there are no special arrangements or activities on offer for children. For the safety and enjoyment of all passengers, children under the age of eight years are not accepted on these cruises.
