Imagine waking to scenes of lush hillsides dotted with quaint villages and castle ruins — all from the comfort of your suite. After breakfast, you enjoy an expertly guided tour of one of Europe’s most extraordinary Gothic churches.

In the afternoon, you might spend a few hours sampling vintages from one of the region’s best-known wineries, or simply wandering the town’s cobblestone streets, taking in the sights.

This vacation is possible through Avalon Waterways, part of the Globus family of brands. With all-inclusive packages and deluxe, award-winning ships, Avalon is a leader in the river cruise industry.

What sets Avalon apart? First, their innovatively designed fleet is the youngest in the industry. This means modern decor, up-to-date onboard technology, and the largest staterooms of any river cruise line in Europe.

Avalon’s Suite Ships were developed with the traveler’s desires in mind. Rather than minimize stateroom space by creating a separate balcony area off of each room, Suite Ships push the rooms all the way to the edge of the ship. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors can be slid open for each passenger to enjoy their own Open-Air Balcony, without leaving their bed.


The luxurious amenities don’t end with the suites. Onboard, passengers get a taste of the region through which they are traveling with Avalon’s Local Favorites program. Local artisans and experts give demonstrations, music performances, and lead beer and wine tastings.

Travelers can kick back after a full-day of touring and relax on the ship’s Sky Deck or in the whirlpool. Avalon’s European ships also include multiple lounges and upscale bar areas to unwind in before dinner.

What else? Inclusive excursions. Complimentary local wines and beer with dinner. Free Wi-Fi.
