Rivers built the world’s most extraordinary cities – not oceans. Imagine floating through the sites and lights of Paris, sailing by windmills and tulips on your way to Amsterdam, or docking in the very heart of eclectic Budapest. Avalon Waterway’s European river cruises will have you meandering by hilltop castles, Roman ruins, lush vineyards, and quaint medieval villages – as well as stopping in other iconic destinations, like Prague, Zurich, the Cote d’Azur or Burgundy Wine Country. Or, if you’re looking for an exotic flavor, take a look at our offerings along China’s ancient Yangtze, through South East Asia’s mystic Mekong or Irrawaddy, or to the natural wonders of the Galapagos Islands and the mighty Amazon.

Avalon Waterways would like to take you to the heart of the world —  discovering places, not ports.

You can book an Avalon Waterways cruise with one of our travel agents and have peace of mind that your voyage will be well thought out and planned. We will help you choose an Avalon Waterways cruise itinerary that will meet your vacation expectations!
