Avalon Visionary: Your passage to Europe’s great rivers

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 Visionary. Sailing the Rhine, Main, Moselle and Danube rivers, and the waters of the Lowland countries, Avalon Visionary 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 Visionary offers even seasoned travelers new opportunity to discover old and new Europe.

Avalon Visionary 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 buffets to multi-course dinners.

Where Avalon Visionary sails

Avalon Visionary sails the Rhine, Danube and Main rivers, as well as the waters of Belgium and the Netherlands. Cruises range from 8 to 19 days, and destinations and port calls include Amsterdam, Basel, Brussels, Budapest, Munich, Prague and Vienna.
