Avalon makes mealtimes a wonderful part of the journey and frees your tastebuds from the ordinary, offering a variety and choice you will truly savour.

Avalon gives you choices. And because we always start with fresh, quality ingredients, delectable recipes, and expert chefs, you can look forward to each meal the same way you look forward to each port.


Avalon Waterways know that no two travellers are alike so they don't assume all their guests will like the same activities and excursions. With more expertly led discovery options than any other river cruise line they make it possible for you to explore each port of call according to what intrigues you most.


Avalon Waterways want your experience with them to be as rich as possible and have included everything that they know will be important to your cruise enjoyment.

With so many amenities on board, whether you are making the most of happy hour by enjoying a glass of wine or a gin and tonic in the bar, or having a quiet moment in the Lounge with a cappuccino, there is plenty of space to stretch out and relax on an Avalon ship. Complimentary Wi-Fi access and free use of computers or laptops is available to help you stay in touch with friends and family. They've designed a cruise experience that includes all the right things...but still leaves room for your own preferences.
