Not only are the staterooms and views 30 percent larger than any other small ship in Europe, providing cruisers a renewed feeling of freedom and space, every component of the experience, from bed and bathroom positioning and colour palette to storage space and sound-proof insulation, was wistfully designed for cruisers to ensure they enjoy all that river cruising has to offer.

From the first bite to the last "Mmmmm," Avalon frees your tastebuds from the ordinary. At breakfast, lunch, and dinner, try mouthwatering recipes from the region through which you're traveling-or more familiar Western dishes, if that's your preference.
