Beds that face the View

No other river cruise fleet offers you a view of the world like Avalon Suite Ships. Featuring the widest-opening, wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows in river cruising, your Avalon Panorama Suite is actually river cruising’s only Open-Air Balcony — with living space that’s 30% larger than the industry standard.

And you’ll never have to choose between lying in bed or seeing the view because, unlike other river cruise cabin designs which put their beds against the wall, Avalon’s Comfort Collection Beds actually face the view — so you can stretch out and watch the world go by.
