Little Details Win Big with Avalon Waterways

Avalon Waterways knows that little things make big impressions, and it shows with this river cruise line. Warm staff makes sure that guests are happy and comfortable. Wine, sourced from regional ports and selected by professional sommeliers, is included with dinner. In fact, all cuisine is from local destinations, crafted into mouth watering meals by fantastic chefs. Flexible dining times and healthy options let you stick to your own schedule and diet, too.

Avalon Waterways accommodations are spacious and comfortable, with Comfort Collection bedsSM, L'Occitane® amenities, and marble countertops in bathrooms. Panorama SuitesSM in Avalon’s Suite Ships® class offer the Open-Air BalconySM, unlike any other among river cruises. These suites, which are generally 30% larger than most, have floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows that open wider than any fleet in the river cruise industry.

Entertainment & Attractions

attract

Avalon Waterways ships are quieter in the entertainment department, allowing for a peaceful atmosphere. Attractions vary by ship and region, so check your preferred itinerary for details. However, most Avalon Waterways ships offer WiFi and in-room television, and some vessels have a DVD library. Other ships offer books, cards, and board games for playing in the library or in your stateroom, as well as flatscreen, satellite TV with over 100 free movie options and English-speaking channels.

Dining Options

attract
Avalon Waterways offers FlexDining®, which means that there are no strict meal times, and you can dine wherever and whenever you like. Whether you relish sleeping in or rising with the dawn, you can have a complimentary continental breakfast delivered to your stateroom. Take lunch to go for a fun onshore picnic, or indulge in fresh ingredients with views to match in the Panorama Dining Room — or al fresco, under the clouds at the Sky Bistro.

Regional dishes are prepared with care and ingredients from small farms, and each à la carte meal offers options so you’ll never get bored with the cuisine. Plus, a professional sommelier will pair your dinners with complimentary wines. Soft drinks are free with lunch, and sparkling wine and juices are gratis with breakfast. Daily afternoon tea and snacks are also included in your fare.

Spa & Fitness

attract

Again, options vary by ship. Indulge tired muscles in the whirlpool on the Sun Deck after an onshore adventure. Borrow gear like Nordic walking sticks, bikes, watercraft, and maps for your breathtaking excursions. Other onboard amenities usually include a fitness center for your convenience.
