Avalon Waterways was founded in 2004, starting its life with just one ship, and growing year-on-year to have a fleet of ships across the world. The cruise line owns a fleet of 26 ships and charters a further four, offering passengers sailings on the European waterways, Mekong river, Yangtze, Ganges, Amazon and even the Galapagos. Amazon Waterways is the cruise line for those after true destination immersion, also offering a range of fantastic – and included – shore excursions and special themed sailings. Ships are also smaller than the average river vessel, allowing the line to dock right in the heart of cities and ports. On board, the atmosphere is traditional, relaxed and elegant, with spacious staterooms (30 per cent bigger than the industry standard). In 2019, the cruise line won the accolade of ‘Best European River Line’.
Avalon Saigon, ship details
With its colonial charm and modern features, Avalon Saigon is specifically designed to offer the best cruise experience on the Mekong River, and is one of only two ships cruising from Ho Chi Minh City to Siem Reap and vice versa. Accommodating up to 36 passengers, the ship is built as long and wide as other ships that carry twice as many guests, so the public spaces never feel congested. From the air-conditioned Panorama Lounge to the open-air observation lounge, there are plenty of places to relax, and with lounges located at the front of the ship, you’ll always have a great view.Full ship details
