Intimate Cruising With Avalon
Even though Avalon Waterways was only launched in 2004, it has quickly become one of the most recognized, fast-growing and favored river cruise brands.
As part of the Globus family of brands, Avalon Waterways is backed by 80 years of experience in planning itineraries and guiding vacations around the world. And as experts in travel, Avalon continues to raise the bar when it comes to small-ship cruising by creating truly unique getaways—on one of the youngest fleets on the waterways today!
Sail on the Youngest Fleet
Each year, Avalon adds new vessels that deliver the accommodations and amenities desired by today’s traveler. These modern, contemporary-designed ships feature elegant polished metal and glass throughout, revolutionary engineering, state-of-the-art technology, and personalized service of the highest caliber.
With ships averaging two years in age, you will be consistently sailing upon the newest ships on the European waterways. Two new ships debut in 2009 and two more ships are already on order for 2010.
Modern Contemporary Design
Since Avalon’s ships are so new, all of them feature state-of-the-art design and technology and modern amenities such as flat-screen TVs in staterooms that are some of the largest in the industry.
Floating Room With A View
At 172 sq. feet Avalon offers some of the largest staterooms that include minibars, large wardrobes, and hotel-style beds with Egyptian linens.
Once you settle into your spacious stateroom, you are home for the duration of your journey. With no need for daily unpacking, you can devote your time to exploring the scenic highlights of each port, dining elegantly in a relaxing environment, and meeting new friends in an intimate setting.
Special Details and Extra Touches
Since its inception, Avalon has offered fine dining with unlimited complimentary local wines that vary nightly on all European river cruise vacations. For Royal Deck guests, continental breakfast is available to order the night before for delivery to their stateroom.
On Land Programs
Because Avalon is part of the Globus family of brands, all land programs are operated by Globus, the leader in escorted travel for 80 years. Avalon provides audio headsets for all European shore excursions.
The Most Experience in Travel
By booking an Avalon vacation, you can trust that you are traveling with the most experienced professionals in the industry. One of five reputable brands that make up the Globus family of brands, their 80 years of experience allows them to continually refine their itineraries and procedures down to the very last detail. And more than 200 professional support staff members in Europe and 30 offices around the world ensure that your vacation is more than just a visit—it’s an experience!
From the minute you step on board, an English-speaking crew extends a warm welcome and delivers exceptional service throughout your journey. The Cruise Director is readily available to help you make the most of each day, and delivers educational commentary as you pass through interesting landscapes.
In port, Avalon helps you see your destinations like a local—not a tourist. They work with Local Guides in the area to create shore excursions that reveal the famous sights of a city, as well as the insider secrets and native stories.
