"Avalon Vista and its sister ship Visionary deliver a river cruising experience like no other."

The Vista was designed with comfort in mind, and offers impeccable personal service and attention to detail alongside elegant dining and sleek, contemporary decor.

As one of Avalon Waterways' innovatively designed 'Suite Ships', Avalon Vista offers two full decks of Panorama Suites each with wall-to--wall panoramic windows that open to create unique 'open air balconies'. The Vista is a completely new class of ship with a modern approach to technology and design for the ultimate river cruise experience. 


Accommodation on board the Avalon Vista comes in three different classes: Royal Suites, Panorama Suites, and Deluxe Staterooms. Panorama Suites and Deluxe Staterooms also come on a choice of decks. Royal Suites are slightly larger than Panorama Suites and come with a King Size bed. Every suite provides the very best in size, views and design. Each is sized at an incredibly spacious 200 square feet and features an impressive wall-to-wall panoramic window which opens to an airy two thirds across, giving the feeling of having your own exclusive open-air balcony. Even the placement of the bed allows you to wake up and retire to bed each day facing the magnificent river views.


One of the youngest river cruise fleets in Europe, Avalon Waterways river cruise ships are equipped with an unrivalled selection of contemporary amenities, as well as being incredibly spacious and modern.
