Avalon offers a river cruise experience like no other, providing elegant and inspired cuisine, and staterooms 30% larger than other small ships in Europe.

With more than 80 years of experience in the industry, Avalon offers a river cruise experience like no other. Detail-oriented and luxuriant, Avalon’s river cruises offer panoramic views and spacious roomy quarters. Moreover, with itineraries in Europe, Egypt, China and the Galápagos Islands, Avalon Waterways continues to expand its offerings.

Avalon’s cruise ships incorporate large staterooms with deluxe hotel-style amenities. The interior design of these staterooms have a bright, contemporary feel in line with their Swiss heritage. In addition to spacious rooms and views, Avalon offers an elegant and inspired cuisine, providing travelers one more manner in which they can immerse themselves in the culture of each destination they visit. Meals on board feature local cuisines inspired by local ingredients and created by highly-skilled European chefs. Meals are paired with a fine selection of regional wines.

Aboard Avalon ships one will find hand-tailored experiences – from handpicked Cruise Directors to local guides in every destination, travelers will find unique ways in which to discover unfamiliar locales. Avalon cruises have trained Egyptologists along the Nile, naturalists in the Galápagos, as well as an array of guest lecturers – giving travelers a chance to become immersed in the history and culture of every region they drift past.

For travelers interested in a shorter cruise, Avalon’s ‘cruise-only’ option offers a full cruise experience in a shorter getaway package. Avalon Waterways also offers travelers a ‘taste’ of river cruising with four- and five-day A Taste of the Danube itineraries priced under $1,000. Many Forest Travel clients decide to add a pre- or post-stay in one of Europe’s legendary cities to complement the cruise experience.
