Ocean vs. River Cruising

Maybe you’ve been on an ocean cruise and have been a victim of being nickel-and-dimed. Or you’ve been doing research on river cruising and you think the only difference between ocean cruising and river cruising is the body of water in which you are cruising. Think again! River cruising with Avalon Waterways means extraordinary experiences are INCLUDED.

Included. A word that you don’t tend to associate with cruising. But that was before you discovered Avalon. A river cruise with us means the end to a lot of extra costs and unexpected fees. With every Avalon cruise, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by just how much is included.

From enriching excursions led by Certified Local Guides, to VIP access into the must-see sites. From sparkling wine with breakfast and specialty coffees throughout the day, to regional beers and wines with dinner. From luxuriously spacious staterooms boasting floor-to-ceiling windows to free Wi-Fi.

And now, with our new Avalon Choice® program – the first of its kind in river cruising – you’ll have the opportunity to choose what best suits your taste throughout your cruise, including sightseeing pace & choices and dining.
