There’s something truly romantic about river cruising. It’s a luxury that provides a real delight in seeing the world glide by, a happiness and relaxation so different to any other travel. Avalon Waterways understands the joy that comes with booking a river cruise and wants each guest to experience its unique kind of relaxed luxury.

Whether they’re exploring the many rivers of Europe, the Mekong in South East Asia or the waterways of South America, travellers with Avalon Waterways are encouraged to be themselves and indulge in the comfort and tailored experiences each Avalon Waterways journey provides. Relaxing with a glass of fine wine looking out from the suite’s floor-to-ceiling open air balcony, the breeze brushing their skin; choosing when and where they want to dine as part of the FlexDining™ options on board or gearing up for a shore adventure that suits their own tastes and interests.

Avalon Waterways understands that everyone is different and on every 2019 river cruise, guests can select from a Classic, Discovery or Active option for their included tours.

What does this mean?

CLASSIC: The local expert guides their group through the history and heritage of local destinations. Marvel at the legends and spectacular architecture of iconic and historic sites.   

DISCOVERY: Inspiring and interactive activities have been selected with different interests in mind. Learn the secrets of local cuisine with a cooking class in Ho Chi Minh City or tap into creativity with painting workshops in Provence, a truly immersive cultural experience.

ACTIVE: For travellers who love to keep moving while on holiday, embark on one of the many energetic excursions; from a guided jogging tour of Amsterdam, to cycling, paddling, and hiking their way through scenic locales in places like Austria and France.

Guests choose Avalon Waterways because they want to cruise their own way with a flexibility and personal approach – without sacrificing the luxe touches. There is a desire for a more immersive experience and taking the Classic, Discovery and Active tour options to the next level – Avalon Waterways offers Active Discovery on the Rhine and Active Discovery on the Danube – for passengers who crave a more interactive shore experience in each destination.

Guests have even more options for active and discovery excursions, making these type of interactive cruise experiences even more attractive to a slightly younger crowd.

Avalon Waterways offers laid back luxury and the chance to see new destinations from a unique vantage point that will make memories that last.
