Why River Cruise?
There’s no better way to discover Europe than on an Avalon Waterways river cruise. Sail past stunning landscapes, medieval castles, lush vineyards, and ancient wonders, stopping to explore Europe’s many charming cities. Cruise through the Danube, Rhine, Main, Seine, Moselle, or Rhone rivers and marvel at the magnificent scenery. When the ship docks, experience shore excursions and guided sightseeing of prominent areas and landmarks. If Europe isn’t your style, how about cruising Asia, South America, or the USA? Avalon Waterways offers a variety of itineraries, whether you want to visit China, the Galapagos Islands, or the Peruvian Amazon!
