Avalon Panorama: Passage through Central Europe

Health advisory: All international travelers from the U.S. must be fully vaccinated before boarding an Avalon river cruise. All guests will undergo a health screening upon arrival.


There’s both serenity and a measure of adventure when cruising Central Europe’s famed waterways aboard Avalon Panorama. Sailing the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers, Avalon Panorama can glide by centuries-old castles and beautiful landscapes in the afternoon, then make an overnight port call at one of Europe’s overlooked gems. Whether tastes favor exploring charming historic neighborhoods and world-class museums, or indulging in fine cuisine or a city’s vibrant nightlife, Avalon Panorama offers even seasoned travelers new opportunity to discover old and new Europe.

One of the line’s newer ships, Avalon Panorama is fitted with onboard amenities that promise sailing in comfort. Cruisers can soak in the rays and take in the view from a lounge chair or whirlpool on the Sky Deck. Or wake each morning to the scenery passing by their suite’s wall-to-wall panoramic windows (the ship’s suites are spacious — at 200 square feet, Avalon says, they’re more than 30 percent larger than industry standard). Dining options range from light al fresco lunches at the Sky Bistro to multi-course dinners.
