Avalon invites travelers to experience the views they deserve when sailing the world’s rivers. Unlike other cruise ships, Avalon has designed its staterooms so beds face the window and the incredible sights river cruising is famous for. And in focusing on both space and views, Avalon did something else that’s totally unique. Instead of offering travelers a small balcony, the Open-Air BalconiesSM, in every Panorama SuiteSM, make full use of the intended balcony experience – in any weather condition, in any season – without compromising room space. Avalon is the only river cruise company that’s figured out how to give its cruisers everything they want – more space, indoor/outdoor living and huge views for miles.
