Avalon Expression Indulges Guests

With only 16 staterooms and 67 suites, Avalon Expression caters to river cruisers with a high standard of service. Shore excursions come in varying paces led by expert local guides, and you can also explore ports independently; borrow maps, headsets, walking sticks, watercraft, and bicycles to make the most out of your trip.

When you’re not gallivanting around amazing destinations, Avalon Expression will spoil you with comfortable accommodations and delicious cuisine. Late riser? You’ll still be able to enjoy as much breakfast as early risers. Plus, there’s afternoon tea and lunch out on the deck, too. For dinner, enjoy a multi-course meal in the traditional dining room, or partake in lighter fare at the Panorama Bistro. In any case, healthy options are always available.

Suites aboard Avalon Expression have a unique feature: retractable glass doors that turn the room into an open-air paradise. Sit back and revel in the sights.
