A voyage through old Europe, gliding down the Rhine is like sailing through an impressionist painting. Beginning in the Swiss alps and flowing through Liechtenstein, France, Austria, Germany and the Netherlands before emptying into the North Sea, a Cruise on the Rhine with Avalon Waterways allows guests to breathe in the best of Western Europe. Find yourself in Basel, which looks to be straight out of a storybook, and let the clean, mountain air from Swiss alps energise you. Float upstream towards Germany past the Black Forest, stopping for a slice of the region’s famous cake. Savour local vintages along the way, as local languages and tastes change. With surprises around every bend, live it up with Avalon Waterways on the Rhine River.
From Europe to the Galapagos and Asia, cruise in relaxed luxury with Avalon Waterways with choices as unique as you.

Our floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows blur the line between where the world ends and your suite begins, allowing you to experience the world less seen from the comfort of your bed.
