Avalon Panorama

About Avalon Panorama

Avalon Panorama was the first of her kind, introducing high end luxury to Avalon Waterways’ ships upon her first journey in 2011. Featuring two full decks of suites that boast wall-to-wall panoramic windows, you’ll have the best views of Europe’s finest cities while onboard.

Avalon Panorama is part of Avalon Waterways’ fleet of Suite Ships. Clocking in at 200 square-feet, the suites onboard are 30% bigger than the industry standard, which means you’ll not only have gorgeous views of the skyline, but more room to enjoy it. Each of beds here are window-facing so you’ll open your eyes to a new coastline every morning, plus a little dash of sunset if you time it right.

Though you’ll probably want to dine in the port cities for the majority of the time, Avalon Panorama offers her own range of onboard cuisine. On top of the lounges pouring premium wine and spirits, there’s the Panorama Bistro for light lunches and small bites of regional specialities, plus fresh fruit served throughout the day. There are even continental breakfasts available for room service – perfect for lazy mornings when getting out of your dressing gown and slippers is just too much.

You’ll spend much of your time coastline-gazing, but when the sun goes down nightly activities shimmy up the agenda. Film nights, onboard lectures and activities are on offer, while computer access – including Wi-Fi – is complimentary.

The ship’s array of port cities will give you a taster of some of Europe’s finest destinations, while Avalon Panorama itself ensures you get there in the utmost comfort. Incredible spots like Amsterdam, Prague and Munich await.

Avalon Waterways know that no two travellers are alike so they don't assume all their guests will like the same activities and excursions. With more expertly led discovery options than any other river cruise line they make it possible for you to explore each port of call according to what intrigues you most.


Shore Excursions

On shore, Avalon includes a great range of comprehensive sightseeing excursions led by knowledgable Certified Local Guides. They also provide individual personal audio headsets to ensure you still have the freedom to roam through some of Europe's most famous attractions without missing a moment of fascinating commentary.

If you'd like to experience something slightly off the beaten track, they offer unique alternative excursions in select destinations. In many cities they also give you a choice of sightseeing pace: 'Traditional' to see all the major sights, 'Leisurely' available on walking tours when you want to take it slower, and 'Independent' allowing you to explore on your own. Have a chat with your Cruise Director to learn about the available options.

They even provide Nordic walking sticks to put that extra spring in your step!

Internet Centre

Complimentary Wi-Fi access and free use of computers or laptops is available to help you stay in touch with friends and family while you enjoy a coffee at the Internet Cafe.
