Ah France, je t’adore. It’s the ultimate country where the simple is made special with typical French flair. Daily rituals are transformed into stories you’ll share forever – a morning coffee taken on a Parisian boulevard, sunrise overlooking Le Mont Saint Michel, a treasure found fossicking in the markets of Aix en Provence. Our knowledgeable insiders will help create the experiences you’ve always dreamed of, and show you ones you never thought of. Embark on an Avalon France river cruise in 2021, and come alive with art d’vivre, the art of living and come home with stories you’ll re-live forever.

From Europe to the Galapagos and Asia, cruise in relaxed luxury with Avalon Waterways with choices as unique as you. 

Glide away down the world’s most spectacular rivers, enjoying a unique vantage point from your own private oasis. 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. This is experiential river cruising.

Great food feeds your soul, fuels your passion, and shapes your memories. Taste decadent local delicacies, fresh regional wine and produce. On an Avalon cruise, dining is part of the journey.
