Avalon Waterways

Avalon Waterways River Cruises - Danube

The Danube River is a vital lifeline that pulses through the heart of Central and Eastern Europe. The Danube is not only Europe's second longest river—more than twice the length of the Rhine and nearly three and a half times the length of the Rhône. It flows through ten different countries and more than a dozen languages are spoken on its banks. Enjoy an intriguing, panoramic view of two thousands years of European history as you travel along the lyrical "Blue Danube."

Avalon Waterways River Cruises - Rhine

The Rhine River is the essence of romance. Born as an untamed river in the Swiss Alps, the Rhine takes the scenic route to the North Sea, illuminating some of Europe's most fascinating sights and customs. Historically and culturally, the Rhine has been a crucial source of sustenance, pride and inspiration. Fortresses and castles along the Rhine's embankments highlight the value ancient empires placed on these waters.

Avalon Waterways River Cruises - Main

The lands along the Main River are the epitome of German history and culture—medieval villages, quaint cottages and ancient castles line the slopes of this peaceful, wandering river. Winding across Central Germany, the Main River is formed by the joining of the Red Main and the White Main, meeting the Rhine River at the town of Mainz. The Main-Danube canal stretches for a length of 106 miles from Bamberg to Regensburg with a total of 16 locks, making it possible to travel via river cruise ship from the North Sea to the Black Sea.

Avalon Waterways River Cruises - Moselle

Flowing through France, Luxembourg, and Germany, the Moselle River meanders from sleepy village to village, offering views of fairytale castles and stone-clad fortresses, some beautifully maintained and restored, others in ruins from battles long ago. Wineries and quaint hillside towns are hidden around every major bend of the river. The Moselle River provides excellent opportunities to relive history, soak in the sights of untouched nature, or sit quietly in a riverside café with a plate of cheese and a glass of the region's sweet, floral wine.

Avalon Waterways River Cruises - Seine

The Seine River rises just northwest of Dijon and flows in northwesterly through Paris before emptying into the English Channel at Le Havre. It's one of Europe's great historic rivers and since the early Middle Ages has been considered the river of Paris. Cruising along these waters combines the best of urban and rural French culture, from the burlesque cabarets of Paris to the sleepy medieval towns along the shoreline, and the breathtaking scenery in between. Historians will enjoy a journey back in time along the Seine, with glimpses into antiquity, the Middle Ages, and the most critical moments of World War II.

Avalon Waterways River Cruises - Saône

Flowing through the picturesque, vineyard-lined banks of France’s famed Burgundy wine region, the Saône flows for 300 miles before meeting the Rhône at Lyon

Avalon Waterways River Cruises - Mekong

From its source high up in the Tibetan Plateau the powerful Mekong River courses for over 3,000 miles through China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam, providing a lifeline for millions of people. By the end of your journey along the Mekong you will have a better understanding of life along the river.

Avalon Waterways River Cruises - Upper Irrawaddy

Coursing more than 1,300 miles through central Myanmar, the Irrawaddy River and its surrounding valley form the historical, cultural, and economic heart of Myanmar. The country’s largest river, this “Road to Mandalay” offers you a fascinating glimpse of “The Golden Land” that is Myanmar.

Avalon has designed the industry’s first Open-Air Balconies. These wall-to-wall windows – in every Panorama Suite – open 7-feet wide and invite the outside to come in. And unlike traditional balconies, you can enjoy them year-round – at any time of the day, in any weather condition.
