They are the sole river cruise company in Europe to feature Panorama Class Ships known for their stunning window walls which are 11 feet wide and open a full 7 feet. This allows you to bring the sights and sounds of Europe right into your room, especially with your open air balcony. Unlike big cruises, with Avalon you will enjoy pre-paid port taxes, complimentary wine with dinner, plus daily shore excursions which are often walking tours hosted by knowledgeable local guides. With Avalon Choice, travellers can customize their experience before even stepping on board; moreover, travellers can choose their bed configuration, select where and when to eat on board, select the pace of their included shore excursions to be more energetic, more relaxing, or to leave them more free time to explore on their own.

Avalon is also known for their special interest cruises: culinary, festive season, Jewish Heritage, wine appreciation, golf, wellness, art and impressionism and many more!
