From action-packed experiences and interactive discoveries, to traditional sightseeing, you can tailor a holiday to suit your own personal interests and pace.
Avalon Imagery II Christening with Judy Bailey
In April 2016 we were honoured to have Judy Bailey, NZ broadcaster & journalist, act as Godmother to christen the Avalon Imagery II. This was the 11th ship to join our fleet of European Suite Ships. Here we look back at the Christening event held on the legendary Rhine River.
River Cruising from a Unique Point of View
Avalon Waterways invites travellers to experience the views they deserve when sailing the world’s rivers. Because unlike other cruise ships, Avalon Waterways has designed its staterooms so beds face the window and the incredible sights river cruising is famous for. In fact, on two full decks of every Suite Ship® in Europe. Avalon Waterways offers travellers a unique point-of-view: One where the view is the whole point.
On other ships, travellers face a never-changing view of the wall. On our Suite Ships, we angled our beds to face out a wall of windows so our guests can enjoy the breathtaking views passing by. And in focusing on both space and views, we did something else that’s totally unique. Instead of offering our travellers a small balcony, our Open-Air Balconies® in every Panorama Suite℠ make full use of the intended balcony experience – in any weather condition, in any season – without compromising room space.
We’re the only river cruise company that’s figured out how to give our cruisers everything they want – more space, indoor/outdoor living and huge views for miles.
Avalon Suite Ships
From the world’s youngest river cruising fleet to the sleek, contemporary ship design and state-of-the-art technology, Avalon Waterways leads the way in modern river cruising.
