EUROPE RIVER CRUISES : CRUISES - EUROPE

Avalon Waterways Europe River Cruises
Away from the hustle & bustle of busy highways, great rivers flow through beautiful landscapes. 
DANUBE RIVER CRUISES

The Danube river rises in Germany’s Black Forest and flows through or along the borders of 10 countries. A Danube river cruise may include spectacular cities like Vienna, Budapest, Munich, and Prague. Danube river cruise ships wander through scenic old-country villages, stop at fairytale-Esque castles, medieval fortresses, churches, museums, concert halls, and more - to say nothing of the amazing food, wine, and beer. River cruises on the Danube are sure to leave you with lifelong memories.

RHINE RIVER CRUISES

From the legendary canals of Amsterdam to the German Black Forest of fairytales, any one of the Rhine river cruises will charm and delight. Our Rhine river cruises include visits to some of Central Europe's cultural hubs, where art, fine dining, and historic sites abound. Choose a special Rhine cruise through the blooming tulip fields of northern Holland. Perhaps gliding through majestic vineyards outside Paris is more your style. Or select a Christmas cruise with excursions to magical holiday markets.
