Avalon Waterways River Cruises for Foodies and Eaties

By Avalon Waterways  ·  May 2022

If you want to see the world, sail down its legendary rivers. If you want to see more of the world, look no further than Avalon Waterways.


Avalon shares the flavours of the world with the freshest local ingredients prepared by our talented chefs and served in your choice of venues on board. Our Avalon FlexDiningSM approach to onboard dining experiences has tossed out the idea of restrictive seating times in limited settings. We’ve brought back the question, “Where should we eat?” to the cruise experience. Choose from options like a breezy al fresco lunch at the Sky Grill, an elegant four-course dinner in the glass-walled Panorama Dining Room, or a more casual culinary setting in the Panorama Bistro. Whichever table setting you choose, you’ll savour local flavours as well as the familiar favorites you love. On an Avalon river cruise, great food is all part of the journey.


Who says healthy food can’t be inspiring? On an Avalon river cruise, you can take an indulgent vacation without drifting from your healthy habits. Our Avalon Fresh selections are exclusively created in collaboration with Austrian brothers Leo and Karl Wrenkh, leading chefs in the healthy-dining movement. Using the freshest ingredients from local farms and suppliers, our chefs create flavorful dishes with a dash of innovation. These creative yet wholesome options are available at every meal we serve on board. Whether you’re looking for an energizing juice at breakfast, an artfully crafted salad at lunch, or a satisfying plate at dinner, Avalon Fresh steps up to the plate with the perfect ingredients to fuel your day.


À la carte, four-course dinners, Continental breakfasts, al fresco lunch at the Sky Grill, a tasting menu with a view in the Panorama Bistro. No matter where you dine on board, we set the table using fresh, quality ingredients prepared by expert chefs, so you’ll look forward to each meal the same way you look forward to each port.


Linger over signature cocktails and standard concoctions with a twist. Toast your adventures with the original Espresso Martini or Easy Stinger — just two of our craft cocktails designed by Avalon’s award-winning mixologist, Martin Hudák. Raise your glass and lift your spirits with your choice of remarkable refreshments in our Panorama Lounge.
