Cruise Planning Made Easy

When you choose to cruise with Avalon Waterways, you don’t have to wait to board the ship to begin your vacation. Our approach is that a happy and care-free cruise starts with your very first contact with us and extends through to your welcome home. Our Vacation Planners have in-depth knowledge about river cruising and they’ll help you imagine your journey back to travel.

Personalized Planning

Which cruise is right for you? What are the best options to add pre or post nights? Want to consider adding a Monograms City Stay while you’re over there? We call it YourWay, and we are happy to review all options with you to make sure you’re getting exactly what you want out of your travels.

Flights Anyone?

Avalon offers a wide range of flight options to get you from here to there — from a huge range of carriers, seating selection and preferred pricing from our airline partners. And we’ll ensure your flight schedule is perfectly coordinated with your cruise. Best of all, when you book your flights with us, we include complimentary airport transfers at your destination to get you from airport to your ship (or overnight hotel), starting with a warm greeting from our Airport Hosts who can’t wait to see you.

We'll Protect Your Trip

We offer Trip Protection for your cruise, an option that helps secure your vacation investment, complete with cancel for any reason coverage. We’ll also prepare for a healthy and safe cruise, including our Pre-Trip Health Guidelines and Instructions.

Choices Galore

Avalon is known for choice. Heck, we even named it — Avalon ChoiceSM. Among your cruise choices are included excursions to strike your mood and your fancy. Choose from Classic, Discovery and Active included options. Plus we offer a choice of additional Activities & Excursions you can add to what’s already included. We’ll ensure you see all we have to offer and are equipped to make the choices just right for you.

In the Know & Ready to Go

From the moment you book your cruise with us, we’ll provide helpful communication to you leading up to your departure date to make sure you’re in the know about what to expect for your cruise and how to make the most of it. This includes complimentary access to your AvalonGO App, personalized to you and your specific cruise. We go to great lengths to ensure the time leading up to your cruise is as carefree as the cruise itself.

Extra, Extra!

Need help with any extra touches? How about pre-paying gratuities? Care to consider a premium seat on your flight? Maybe celebrating a special occasion with us? Or even special accommodations we need to consider for your trip. We’re happy to help.

We Love to Hear From You

We’re here live 10 hours a day, 5 days per week and we’d love to hear from you. Our Vacation Planners are accessible, eager to connect, and love to spend as much time as you need to ensure you’re at-ease and ready to go. Call, email or chat. No question is too big or too little, and because you’re calling the ones who put the whole thing together, we’ll always get you the answer. Whether you’d like work with just one Vacation Planner or all of us, we’re here for you.
