Wider windows for the wide-eyed

Stretch out on a luxurious bed that faces a wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling panoramic window, and your room is transformed into river cruising's only Open-Air Balcony®—with nothing between you and the view. You can almost reach out and touch the changing landscapes and landmarks, castles and cathedrals, vineyards and villages, and scenic serenity. You're not dreaming. You're in your Panorama Suite® on an award-winning Avalon Suite Ship®. Let's face it. Beds facing the view are worlds above the rest.

'Cruise Critic?' We prefer 'Cruise Compliment!'

(And thank you, by the way)

Cruise Critic named Avalon’s staterooms the best in the business, and yes, we’re blushing a bit. But it’s only because we’ve taken such pride in bringing you river cruising’s only Open-Air Balcony stateroom design, featuring beds with a view. Rest easy (literally) as you enjoy bigger views, more space and 24/7 access to open-air cruising. With Avalon, the views are as wide open as the possibilities.
