Avalon Vista

About Avalon Vista

Joining Avalon Waterways’ impressive fleet in 2012, Avalon Vista adds a little dash of style to Europe’s rivers. Equipped with modern amenities and chic decor – think dark wood accents and pops of colour – it’ll easily become your luxurious home away from home.

Avalon Vista is another one of Avalon Waterways’ Suite Ships, which feature two full decks of suites that are 30% bigger than the average cruise suite and outer walls are floor-to-ceiling glass. Such features are there to help bring the outside in, giving you even better access to European cityscapes.

Up on the Sky Deck you’ll find chairs for lounging, plus a whirlpool and gaming area. The Sky Deck is also where you can enjoy the Sky Bistro, where your food and drink is served with a side of European landscape gliding by. Much of the cuisine you’ll find on an Avalon cruise is health-forward, with fresh, low calorie options on the menu.

Avalon Vista will take you to all the top spots around Europe. You can hit destinations like Amsterdam and Budapest, Prague and Vienna, all with the help of trusted local guides whose sightseeing excursions have been arranged by Avalon Waterways.

When you aren’t exploring some of Europe’s finest cities, you can settle in for nightly entertainment onboard – including films, quizzes and lectures. Access to the ship’s computers is completely free, along with complimentary WiFi. Once you dock, there are even free bicycle rentals available to explore a number of port towns and keep you fit while doing so.

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.
