Let Avalon Waterways take you into a world you’ve never seen. Packed with fascinating culture, exquisite cuisine and naturally dramatic vistas, our Danube River Cruises take you on an Eastern European adventure. Sample the best local produce in Cetate. Listen to lively tales of the ancient Bulgarian capital of Veliko Tarnovo and be awe-struck by the 200 million-year-old Belogradchik Rocks in Bulgaria. While most head West, our European River Cruises head East for a discovery set to inspire your imagination.

Delight in the difference and comfort. Leaving the rules behind, but not the luxury. From free time to optional excursions, enjoy your cruise at your pace, your way.
Taste the World
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.
