The Widest View in the Whole Wide World


Cruise Critic Awards

Cruise Critic named Avalon’s staterooms the best in the business, and yes, we’re blushing a bit. But it’s only because we’ve taken such pride in bringing you river cruising’s only Open-Air Balcony stateroom design, featuring beds with a view. Rest easy (literally) as you enjoy bigger views, more space and 24/7 access to open-air cruising. With Avalon, the views are as wide open as the possibilities.

A View with a Room

No other fleet of river cruise ships gives you a view of the world like Avalon. While other river cruise cabins shove your bed against a wall for a view of the other wall, our Comfort Collection BedsSM beds face the widest-opening, wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows in river cruising. Not only are Avalon Panorama Suites 30% larger than the industry standard, we’re also the only river cruise fleet that transforms your suite into an amazing Open–Air BalconySM - with nothing between you and the view!

Small Details. Big Difference.

When it comes to the little touches, we think big—like your choice of firmness in our exclusive Comfort Collection beds and pillows, the plushest of towels, L'Occitane® bath products atop marble countertops, premium spirits at the upscale bar, and premium coffees in the Club Lounge. You deserve the best of everything when you're on vacation, including what you need to maintain your healthy lifestyle. On our ships, you'll enjoy a state-of-the-art fitness center, free bicycles for use in select ports, and a bubbling whirlpool on the Sky Deck awaiting your return.

Incomparable Intimate Cruising in Southeast Asia

Award-winning Ships on the Mekong River

Our incredible Suite ShipsSM in Southeast Asia accommodate just 36 guests for a more exclusive experience. Each ship is meticulously crafted to offer all the modern features you expect, while retaining the unique character and charm of your destination.

While the maximum number of guests may be small, our ships are not. Built as long and wide as other ships that carry twice as many guests, our onboard common areas never feel congested. From the air-conditioned Panorama Lounge to the open-air observation lounge, there is plenty of seating with inviting spots to relax. Plus, our lounges are located at the front of the ship, not the back, so no matter where you choose to relax, you’ll always have a great view.

Step aboard our award-winning ships, the Avalon SaigonSM or the Avalon Avalon Siem ReapSM, the only ships that cruise both ways from Ho Chi Minh City to Phnom Penh.
