Avalon Waterways

A member of the Globus family of brands, Avalon Waterways operates river cruises aboard sleek ships with state-of-the-art engineering that allows for smooth, comfortable sailing.

Passengers can relax in spacious staterooms featuring satellite television, private bathrooms and hotel-style beds with Egyptian cotton sheets. Each ship highlights a variety of resort-style amenities, including gourmet dining and quality entertainment from local musicians. Panoramic picture windows on every ship provide magnificent views of passing landscapes.

Avalon ships have English-speaking crews, and while the ship is in port, expert guides point out famous tourist spots as well as hidden gems. Guided sightseeing tours are included as part of your cruise, but you can also explore on your own if you prefer.

Trip ratings on this site are based on the quality of accommodations, the number of included meals and activities and the level of service delivered. Avalon's vacations are categorized as deluxe on the industry rating scale (budget, first class or deluxe).
