Avalon amenities include a Sky Deck, fitness center, library, salon, elegant dining options, and more.

During your journey, sail past historic windmills and castles, ruins and vineyards, past some of the world's most fascinating sights. But not all highlights of the trip occur at sea.

You'll stop in iconic destinations like Prague, Burgundy and Zurich and discover the rich cities and hidden gems with guided sightseeing. Stroll or bike along ancient roads and discover the countries you’ve always dreamed about. On an Avalon Waterways European river cruise, you'll experience the extraordinary.

Single Supplement waved on 2017 Avalon Waterways Europe and Irrawaddy River Cruise Departures*

When you step onto Avalon European river cruises, your breath will be taken away by the magic that separates you from everyday life on dry land. You’ll glide past imposing medieval castles, lush riverbank vineyards, and remarkable ancient wonders on your European river cruise. Every gentle bend of the river reveals another fascinating sight as your luxurious river cruise ship winds its way through scenic landscapes, delivering you right to where many of Europe’s most celebrated cities were born.

Coursing more than 1,300 miles through central Myanmar, the Irrawaddy and its surrounding valley form the historical, cultural, and economic heart of Myanmar. From its glacial origins in the soaring Himalayas, it meanders peacefully through jungle-shrouded highlands and sun-seared plains to its mangrove-dotted delta at the Andaman Sea. The country’s largest river, this “Road to Mandalay” offers you a fascinating glimpse of “The Golden Land” that is Myanmar.
