Our cruises are priced per person, based on double occupancy. For single travellers who prefer the privacy of their own stateroom, single accommodation can be requested.

Why is my contact information collected when I book? 

There may be times when unforeseen events beyond our control impact travel schedules and potentially disrupt your holiday. These include, but are not limited to, severe weather conditions, acts of nature, and government travel advisories. Under such circumstances, it is critical that Avalon be able to contact you immediately and reliably – including nights, weekends, and holidays – to make sure you are informed of any possible changes to your travel.  

Additionally, the care and safety of our guests is our highest priority. There may be a need to contact you during your trip or to contact your designated family member or friend in the event of unforeseen circumstances while you are travelling. Therefore, in addition to pre-trip contact information, we also require an emergency contact name and number, as well as an on-trip phone number for all travellers.  

Please log these details online in your MyAccount. We can’t send out your travel documents until they’re in there.

Can I save if I book as a group? 

No matter the occasion – family reunion, friend’s getaway, club event or church group – Avalon provides a great collection of river cruises for you and your group. Book your holiday as a group of 10 or more on select river cruises and one passenger cruises for free! As your group grows, so does your discount. Our specialised Groups Department can make all the arrangements for the perfect cruise for you and your crew.
