Welcome to river cruising with Avalon

The widest view in the whole wide world

Your view of the world is about to change—big time. At Avalon, we transformed ordinary cruise cabins into our one-of-a-kind Open-Air BalconySM, starring cruising’s only bed with a view and the space to take it all in. Pair panoramic scenes with the widest-ranging excursion choices in river cruising for an experience as wide open as the view.

Go ahead and rock the boat

Who says you can’t rise when you like, dine when you want, and explore as you wish? On an Avalon cruise, schedules give way to whims, leaving you the freedom to do exactly as you please, when you please. Oodles of included excursions are on every cruise, from in-depth sightseeing to local discoveries and active pursuits... whatever floats your boat. Sail with us and one thing is certain—you’re free to rock your style your way.
