AVALON WATERWAYS RIVER CRUISES...CRUISE EUROPE IN STYLE

Book Your Luxury Cruise with Avalon Waterways River Cruises & American Airlines Cruises

Not all cruises are created equal. When you select an Avalon Waterways River Cruise, you are making the decision to immerse yourself in the utmost indulgence in cruising. Avalon Waterways offers its signature Avalon ChoiceSM to all passengers, allowing you to design the perfect European river cruise experience based solely around your personal preferences. Uniquely crafted with luxurious details at every turn, Avalon Waterways provides the small-ship feel with all the posh and decadence of a five-star resort. Contemporary décor, wall-to-wall panorama windows and elegant finishes abound to lend a captivating and comforting air.

Let Avalon Waterways River Cruises be your home away from home. With expert detail, each cruise ship is designed with the utmost care, giving you every comfort you could hope for and more. With a fleet of suite ships, Avalon Waterways offers not only the signature Avalon Deluxe Staterooms, but also Panorama Suites and Royal Suites for those who want it all. Comfort comes standard with all staterooms, and each is artfully prepared with European-style duvets, Egyptian cotton sheets, full private showers, flatscreen televisions and more. Even better, more than 80% of staterooms include floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors and French balconies, while suites feature Open-Air Balconies with seating for 6.

Mealtime aboard Avalon Waterways is a part of the journey. With mouthwatering temptations certain to delight your palette, the chefs cater to your every craving. From the very first night when you dine on a five-course meal at the captain’s reception, you’ll discover that each meal is as tailored as the last. Dine under the pristine sky at the open-air bistro, or take advantage of cocktail hour at the Panorama Lounge. If traditional dining is more your cup of tea, enjoy the convenience of open seating in the dining room as you savor the elegant menus featuring local cuisine and delicacies.

Take the time to relax on the comfortable lounge chairs on the sky deck, or try your hand at the game area where you could play a life-sized game of chess. With complimentary Wi-Fi access throughout your Avalon Waterways cruise ship, convenience is at your fingertips 24/7. Immerse yourself in Avalon Waterways’ Culture & CruiseSM activities from wine and beer tastings, to demonstrations from local artists and even exciting entertainment from local performers.

Most European cruises extend between 7 and 14 nights, giving you the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the luxury and culture your Avalon Waterways River Cruise is will provide. Sail the waters of the Rhine, Main, Danube Rivers and more and soak in the culture of hotspots such as Prague and Vienna. Boasting the youngest and newest fleet of ships in Europe, Avalon Waterways is proud to include the brand new Avalon VistaSM and Avalon VisionarySM to its already impressive lineup of luxury ships. Take the time to indulge in cruise memories that will last a lifetime. With American Airlines Cruises your dream holiday is just moments away!
