Switzerland is an Avalon Waterways favourite location – a country of laidback luxury where endless temptations abound, from searingly beautiful vistas to vibrant, urban cities. It also happens to be our country of origin. From the mighty Matterhorn to the glistening shores of Lac Leman and the edgy vibe in Zurich, Switzerland is simple and made perfectly. The capital Basel, intersecting the French, German and Swiss borders has a multicultural ambience. Wander the cobbled streets of lofty Altstadt and pause for riverside dining before heading back on board to live it up on an Avalon Danube River Cruise in 2021.

THE POSSIBILITIES ARE AS WIDE OPEN AS THE VIEWS.

We promise more than good view on an Avalon Waterways® river cruise - we deliver the suite view. Our entire fleet in Europe and Southeast Asia is completely comprised of Suite Ships®, each featuring our Panorama SuitesSM with the widest opening windows in river cruising, the industry's only Open-Air BalconySM, and inviting bed facing the ever-changing scenery.
Rooms with a View
The window of opportunity to see and experience the world just got a whole lot wider. Our beds actually face the view with the widest-opening, wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows in river cruising. Think of it as a room with a view!
Relaxed Luxury
Delight in the difference and comfort. Leaving the rules behind, but not the luxury. From free time to optional excursions, enjoy your cruise at your pace, your way.
Taste the World
Great food feeds your soul, fuels your passion, and shapes your memories. Taste decadent local delicacies, fresh regional wine and produce. On an Avalon cruise, dining is part of the journey.
