Avalon Waterways

Avalon Waterways

When designing its new ships, Avalon Waterways started with the traveler instead of the ship. This is a river cruise company that invites innovation, imagination and a relentless desire to create a smart use of space be its guide. The result? More space. Bigger views. More comfort … All thanks to one-of-a-kind Panorama SuitesSM on the industry’s only Suite Ships®. The Suite Ships of Avalon are revolutionizing the river cruise industry. For instance, on these signature vessels, Avalon brings an unprecedented level of thoughtfulness and attention to detail to every aspect of the Panorama Suites, providing travelers an oasis to escape to, not escape from. Even better? Avalon doesn’t offer travelers just a few Panorama Suites on each ship. Instead, 80 percent of the guest rooms on Suite Ships are Panorama Suite (they’re 30 percent larger than the average river cruise room). In designing its ships, Avalon has refused to see space as a barrier. That fact couldn’t be truer when looking at the company’s inspired indoor/outdoor space. For instance, Avalon’s Open-Air Balconies®, a completely new concept, make full use of the intended balcony experience – in any weather condition, in any season – without compromising room space. How? Giant wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows with a 7-foot opening. Avalon has considered every detail of the cruise experience. But perhaps it’s what the company hasn’t done that makes it so unique. It hasn’t filled ships to capacity with people. In fact, because the river cruise line made its rooms so spacious, there’s more room for less people. Simply put, Avalon Waterways is built differently

Great ship by Avalon

By: Pete

Reviewed on: 20 Dec 2016

This is a great line. All dinners have endless wine and it is good stuff. Food was excellent at every occasion. The shore tours were well organized and the staff was exceptional. Like this cruise line better than all the other river cruisers. The affinity was clean and appeared to be new. This cruise had about 150 passengers.

Looked like it had just been taken out of overhaul. The ship is one of the older ships but in mint condition. Staff was wonderful as well

We had an awesome time on this ship. Monica, our cruise director, was truly amazing in her ability to coordinate activities and needs of that many people and always stay gracious and professional. Every one of the ships crew were delightful and helpful. I would travel with them again if given the opportunity.
