Avalon Waterways didn’t change history. Only the way their travelers see it.

Seeing great views is why we travel. That’s why Avalon Waterways has redefined the views for river cruisers worldwide. Their Panorama SuitesSM feature beds that face the windows and the incredible sights river cruising is famous for. In fact, on two full decks of every Suite Ship® in Europe and Southeast Asia, Avalon Waterways offers travelers a unique point-of-view: One where the view is the whole point.

On other carriers’ ships, travelers face a never-changing view of the wall. On Avalon’s Suite Ships, they angled the beds to face a wall of windows so guests can enjoy the breathtaking views passing by. And in doing that, they opened their rooms up to give travelers more stateroom and bathroom space.

And in focusing on both space and views, Avalon Waterways did something else that’s totally unique. Instead of offering travelers a small – often very cramped – balcony, their Open-Air Balconies® in every Panorama Suite make full use of the intended balcony experience – in any weather condition, in any season – without compromising room space.

How? Avalon Waterways created the innovative Open-Air Balconies by pushing each room all the way out to the end of the ship. Then they made a whole wall of windows (with a giant, 7-foot opening). In front of the wall-to-wall windows, travelers have a love seat, chairs and table. The result is a space where they can slide the doors wide open and enjoy the feeling of sitting comfortably “outside” as the amazing views of castles and villages, rolling green hills and ancient cities pass by.

Avalon Waterways is the only river cruise company that’s figured out how to give cruisers everything they want – more space, indoor/ outdoor living and huge views in the comfort and privacy of their rooms.
