A brand new kind of ship, the Avalon Panorama sets sail in 2011, taking inspired design to a whole new level. A unique "Suite Ship," the Avalon Panorama is the first of its kind in the industry - with two full decks of suites featuring a Wall-to-Wall Panoramic Window that transforms the living space into a unique Open-Air BalconyTM. As you cruise through Europe's finest rivers - the Danube, Rhine, or Main - enjoy the fresh breeze and enchanting scenery from the comfort of your suite.
Enjoy the Romantic Rhine cruising one of Europe's longest rivers between fascinating Amsterdam and culturally-diverse Basel.

The roomy and well-appointed staterooms feature a minimum of 172 square feet of space and are the largest of the European rivers today.

New in 2010, the Avalon Luminary is one of the latest additions to the Avalon fleet, and holds a maximum of just 138 passengers. Visit multiple countries and cities and unpack only once, so you spend your time experiencing and enjoying Europe rather than dealing with the logistics of travel.
Accommodating a maximum of 138 passengers for an intimate cruise experience, the Avalon Affinity set sail in 2009 and reflects the uniqueness of the rivers it cruises - the Rhine, Main, Danube, and Moselle. After a day of exploring some of Europe's most exciting cities, relax in the ship's two lounges, soak in the whirlpool, or unwind in a deck chair atop the Sky Deck.

The Avalon Scenery is the ship to choose when cruising in France. France is known for its gastronomy, and the Avalon Scenery answers the call for remarkable cuisine with the finest chef-inspired recipes, 5-star service, and complimentary regional wines. Accommodating only 138 passengers in an elegant, contemporary design, the Avalon Scenery also offers deluxe staterooms and suites - most with floor-to-ceiling sliding-glass doors and French balconies - with all the comforts you'd want and expect on a vacation to France.
