Avalon Waterways (Globus)

Avalon Waterways River Cruises are brought to you by the Globus Family of Brands. The Avalon Waterways brand was created by Globus as a premium upscale river crusing experience.

Avalon Waterways offers river-cruise itineraries in Europe, China, Egypt and the Galapagos Islands. Ships in Europe are part of the Avalon Waterways fleet. As one of the youngest fleets of ships cruising Europe's rivers, they are sleek, elegant and full of wonderful on-board amenities. In other destinations, Avalon Waterways sails on the newest ships available.

Part of a new generation of cruisers, these small ships offer larger accommodations with hotel-style beds, modern private facilities, satellite television, floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors in most staterooms and some cabins with private balconies. Then there's Internet access, fitness equipment and gathering rooms for meeting up with new friends. On a Avalon Waterways river cruise, you'll enjoy meals with open seating in a spacious dining room. Typically, breakfast and lunch are buffet style. There's just one sitting for the four-course dinner (with choice of entrees no formal dress code!) and wine is included. Other events on board might include educational lectures, wine tastings and local entertainment.

Sightseeing on Avalon Waterways river cruise itineraries is top notch. Professional local guides will meet you at every port of call to share with you the highlights of his or her city. Also helping smooth the way for your entire vacation is an on-board Cruise Director (also during any hotel stays). In Egypt, you'll learn so much about its ancient history through your on-board Egyptologist, and in the Galapagos, you'll learn all about the fascinating wildlife from an on-board Expedition Team.
