Avalon Waterways Cabins



Over the years, Avalon has prided itself on a consistent fleet, so that no matter which of their ships you sailed on, there was a familiar feel that is synonymous with Avalon. They are proud to offer a 100% "Suite Fleet," so that no matter which Avalon ship you sail on, you will have an opportunity to experience their award winning Panorama Suites.


More Space = Less People on Avalon Suite Ships


At Avalon Waterways, they made their rooms bigger (as you will see), so they have fewer people on board - leaving you with more space. The majority the rooms are suites, with the Panorama Suites being 30 percent larger than the industry standard. Avalon Waterways was recognized by Cruise Critic as having the Best Cabins in River Cruising FOUR years in a row! (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018)


And in 2020 the Panorama Suites won TravelAgeWest's WAVE Award for Best Cabins in All of River Cruising!


Even so, the river cruise experience goes beyond just the hard product. At Avalon, they deliver service that’s professional, approachable, and informative, from the captain and Cruise Director to your cabin steward and wait staff. Avalon's service strikes the perfect balance; respectful but never stuffy or formal. On shore, their Local Guides take care of you every step of the way.




The three Es of travel are exciting, engaging, and enthralling. Travel can also encompass another E by being exhausting. With Avalon, your client's stateroom is their sanctuary during their river cruise.


At Avalon Waterways® our spacious staterooms guarantee your clients will recharge and relax. Unlike other cruise ships, the majority of our staterooms feature beds that face the windows and the incredible sights river cruising is famous for. And as we just mentioned all of our ships as of 2019 are Suite Ships!


But that comfortable luxury isn't just reserved for Panorama Suites. At 172 sq. ft., our Avalon Deluxe Staterooms are still spacious, comfortable, and quiet (thank you sound insulation) Avalon boasts the largest staterooms in river cruising. With Avalon your client will NEVER sail in a stateroom smaller than 172 sq. ft., regardless of cabin category. Some of our competition put your clients in rooms as small as 135 sq. ft.


For the ultimate in extra space and luxury, book your clients into one of our 300-square foot Royal Suites, offering cruisers even more room to take in the spectacular views of the passing landscape.


Here’s a look at the amenities you will enjoy when you book into an Avalon Stateroom in Europe, regardless of cabin category:


  • Comfort Collection Beds℠ with luxurious mattress toppers, Egyptian super-combed cotton linens, soft & firm pillows, and European-style duvets, plus choice of bed configuration

  • Bedside tables with reading lamps, spacious three-door closets with shelves for ample storage, writing desk & chair

  • L'Occitane bath products, hair dryer, large shower with glass door, vanity and lighted makeup mirror, bathrobes & slippers

  • Complimentary in-room Wi-Fi, flat screen satellite TV, English-speaking TV and movie channels with over 100 free movie options, direct-dial telephone


Combine all of these elements and you can see why Avalon Waterways provides travellers with a unique feeling of space, freedom, and comfort not found with any other river cruise line.



Panorama Suites℠

“Seeing is believing.”

English proverb


At Avalon Waterways® they have mastered the art of blending luxury with comfort, and, with the Panorama Suites℠, they are blurring the line between outside and in. Your Panorama Suite delivers a truly remarkable feature: Avalon's innovative Open-air Balcony℠. Measuring 11 feet across, this massive wall-to-wall window offers uninterrupted panoramic views. The doors slide open a full nine feet, creating the feeling of sitting outside. These unique Open-Air Balconies allow cruisers to make full use of the balcony experience in any season, without compromising room space.


“Imagine a TV screen measuring 11 feet wide and 7 feet tall. That's what Avalon delivers with their Panorama Suites... only better. Every stateroom on two full decks of Avalon Waterways’ Suite Ships® features wall-to-wall windows, giving you panoramic, floor-to-ceiling views of Europe's awe-inspiring landscapes.”


With an expansive 200 square feet of living space, including a private sitting area, you will never feel cramped or crowded on Avalon's European ships. The large private bathroom features a full shower with rain shower head, premium bath products, and ample storage space. There is even sound dampening insulation, so it is less likely you will hear their neighbours.


Not only are the Panorama Suites on Avalon's Suite Ships 30 percent larger than the industry standard stateroom, they have also switched things up by turning their Comfort Collection Beds℠ to face the wall-to-wall, floor to ceiling window, giving you a bed with a view. Even if you are seasoned travellers, you have never seen Europe like this, relaxing in bed on Egyptian cotton sheets as the continually changing river scape flows by.

There are three responses to a piece of design – yes, no, and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for.”

-Milton Glaser


Meticulous millwork, hand-applied finishes, contemporary décor, and designer lighting will surround you when they are onboard an Avalon Waterways® ship. These ships were designed to have elegant, contemporary spaces that create an atmosphere of ease and pleasure.


Mirroring the onboard cruise experience found on all of Avalon's ships, each of Avalon Waterways' European Suite Ships® also feature a club lounge, Panorama Bistro, main lounge, dining room with sweeping views, fitness center, Sky Deck whirlpool, and Sky Grill.


When Avalon Waterways unveiled the Avalon Panorama℠, the industry's first Suite Ship, they redefined the river cruise experience by enhancing traveller comfort and views, while also bringing the outside in. Their Suite Ships underscore Avalon's dedication to energizing the river cruise category. For years, they have introduced upscale design innovations that have elevated the industry standard, including the introduction of floor-to-ceiling windows on two decks of every Avalon vessel. They were also the first to bring a larger, entry-level cabin category with deluxe hotel-style design, (the Avalon Deluxe Stateroom) to an entire fleet of ships, making them the most contemporary and consistent river cruise operator around. 


Avalon Waterways' Suite Ships pioneered river cruising by supplying staterooms and views that are 30 percent larger than any other small ship in Europe. Every component of the experience, from bed and bathroom positioning and colour palette to storage space and sound-proof insulation, was willfully designed for their cruisers to ensure they enjoy all that river cruising has to offer.
