Avalon Waterways
-Health & Safety

At Avalon, the health and safety of their guests during river cruising is their top priority. In today's changing world, Avalon Waterways remains dedicated to ensuring your safety, comfort, and peace of mind. To achieve this, they have implemented a comprehensive set of onboard protocols and procedures under their new Avalon Assurance program. The goal is to safeguard the well-being and happiness of their guests throughout your cruise experience with them.

Everything begins with their Global Health & Safety Team, a specialized group committed to surpassing current travel standards by maintaining the highest levels of cleanliness in all operations, from start to finish.

Here are some of the key areas addressed by Avalon Waterways as part of their commitment to providing a clean environment for their passengers:


Avalon Waterways has implemented enhanced cleaning procedures across their entire Suite fleet, going beyond Avalon's already stringent measures. This includes thorough disinfection of each stateroom between cruises and disinfection of dining areas after every meal service. Additionally, all goods are inspected and disinfected prior to loading onto the ship.


Avalon's ships feature the innovative Open-Air Balcony stateroom design, which provides not only breathtaking views but also ensures the circulation of clean, fresh air. The air in their ships is not shared between staterooms but remains within each individual stateroom, mixed with clean outside air.


With a guest to crew ratio of 3:1, Avalon Waterways prioritize guest comfort, health, and safety. They have implemented additional measures to maintain a healthy crew, including enhanced training, mandatory medical certificates before the start of the season, daily temperature checks, regular crew health screenings, and social distancing in crew living quarters.


While the world has changed, Avalon Waterway's commitment to your peace of mind while traveling remains unwavering. They have not only enhanced their on-trip health and safety protocols through the Avalon Assurance program but also offer risk-free, hassle-free, and flexible bookings with their Peace of Mind Travel Plan.

Your health and safety are paramount to us. We strive to provide you with a worry-free and enjoyable river cruising experience.
