Red and yellow and pink and green…

There’s a whole rainbow waiting to emerge in Holland’s tulip fields next spring. There’s no better sight after a grey and dreary winter – and there’s no better way to experience it than in the relaxed luxury of an Avalon Waterways Panorama Suite – the biggest views and most spacious suites on the water.

Looking for something a little further afield? Why not take a springtime Danube cruise and explore Vienna, Budapest, Bratislava and Melk? Or uncover the secrets of the Rhine on an Active & Discovery cruise, where you can walk the glassy halls of an underground lava mine, learn the techniques of the old masters in a painting workshop and take an off-the-beaten-path tour of Cologne.
