Cruise with the Whole World at Your Feet
No other fleet of river cruise ships offers you a view of the world like Avalon Suite Ships, featuring Avalon Panorama Suites. Thirty percent larger than the industry standard, they’re actually river cruising’s only Open–Air Balcony — with nothing between you and the view. While other river cruise cabins are designed with beds against a wall for a view of another wall, our Comfort Collection Beds actually face the view with the widest-opening, wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows in river cruising. Think of it as a view with a room!
Designed from the bottom up for comfort, space, and room to dream, each Avalon Suite Ship consists of 80% Panorama Suites—offering the widest view in river cruising. Larger suites result in fewer passengers, so you’ll never feel crowded anywhere on board. From reclining on the open-air Sky Deck, relaxing in the spacious Panorama Lounge, or feeling the wind over the bough on the Observation Lounge, there’s never a shortage of comfortable spots to stretch out, day dream, or just watch the world go by.
The River is Wide. So is Your View.
It’s hard to know where Avalon Panorama SuitesSM end and the view begins! That’s because no other river cruise fleet offers you a view of the world like Avalon Suite Ships®. Featuring the widest-opening, wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows in river cruising, your Avalon Panorama Suite is actually river cruising’s only Open–Air BalconySM — with living space that’s 30% larger than the industry standard. And you’ll never have to choose between lying in bed or seeing the view because, unlike other river cruise cabin designs which put their beds against the wall, Avalon’s Comfort Collection BedsSM actually face the view — so you can stretch out and watch the world go by.
We’ve gone beyond the notion of small cabins with unusable “balconies” to extend your Panorama Suite into cruising’s only Open-Air Balcony. With nothing between you and the view, your wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows create a living picture postcard. Wake up to a whole new world to see an ever-changing view just outside your window. Think of it as a view with a room!
