With brand new ships, new itineraries, and new celebrity guests, we can’t wait to welcome you on board Avalon Waterways in 2022 and beyond!

Setting sail for the first time in 2022, we are thrilled to launch The View, the latest addition to Avalon’s fleet of Suite Ships. True to its name, the Avalon View will offer the widest views of Europe’s waterways with two full decks of our award-winning Panorama suites, all of which feature wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows. You’ll never tire of the moment your luxurious living room transforms into a fabulous open-air balcony!

We’ll also be sharing a story or two with some of our favourite celebs on our new and exclusive Storyteller Series. Sailing through storybook settings, you’ll get to hear from the talent themselves, including bestselling international authors Candace Bushnell (Sex in the City), Cheryl Strayed (Wild) and Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl), among others.

If adventure is more your speed, you’ll love our Active & Discovery collection. We have a great choice of Avalon Choice excursions already included and 47 departures to choose from on the Danube, Rhine, Rhône, waterways of Holland and Belgium, as well as two brand-new itineraries on the Seine and Moselle rivers.

With the world becoming your oyster once again in 2022, you can also travel easy, wherever you choose to cruise, knowing that our new Cruising with Confidence policy, features expertly designed health and safety procedures, to safeguard your health and happiness on your holidays.

As well as our commitment to service excellence and utmost care of our guests, Avalon places highest priority on sustainable and responsible river cruising. In 2022 and 2023 we have plans to pilot a program using bio-fuel, aiming to reduce total carbon emissions by 50%. We will also continue to support our partners, The Ocean Clean up, to help fulfil their important and ongoing mission of removing 90% of the world’s ocean plastic.
