Avalon Waterways invites travellers to experience the views they deserve when sailing the world’s rivers. Because unlike other cruise ships, Avalon Waterways has designed its staterooms so beds face the window*- 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 ships, travellers face a never-changing view of the wall. On our Suite Ships, we angled our beds to face out a wall of windows so our guests can enjoy the breathtaking views passing by. And in doing that, we opened our rooms up to give our travelers more stateroom and bathroom space.
And in focusing on both space and views, we did something else that’s totally unique. Instead of offering our travellers a small – often very cramped – balcony, our 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? We created our innovative Open-Air Balconies by pushing each room all the way out to the end of the ship. Then we made a whole wall of windows (with a giant, 7-foot opening). In front of the wall-to-wall windows, we provide travelers a love seat, chairs and table. The result is a space where travelers 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.
We’re the only river cruise company that’s figured out how to give our cruisers everything they want –more space, indoor/outdoor living and huge views for miles in the comfort and privacy of their rooms.
*64% of the Avalon Europe fleet feature beds facing the window.
