Essential to your Avalon cruise is our dedication to your dining experience. We understand the importance of enjoying meals just the way you like them. With Avalon, you decide what and where to eat on board.
Try an al fresco lunch at the Sky Bistro or a light dinner in the Panorama Bistro. With à la carte waiter service in an elegant dining room with panoramic windows, you’re always assured of stunning views and superb service, with complimentary wine and beer at lunch and dinner.
With eggs cooked the way you like hem and daily fresh bread, breakfast is a tempting international selection of hot dishes and continental options. Tuck into hearty soups, hot dishes, salads, cold cuts and desserts at a lunch buffet. Look out for the Avalon Fresh dishes appearing throughout our menus, created exclusively for us by rising star chefs the Wrenkh brothers.
From your gourmet five-course welcome dinner to the healthy snacks available between meals and late-night treats, we make mealtimes an important part of your cruise.
We also cater for a range of dietary requirements. And if you’d like to explore a port destination by yourself, there’s no need to miss out on our quality cuisine, as we’ll prepare you a delicious packed lunch.
Executive home pick-up service
We aim to make your travel arrangements as smooth as possible with our included private home pick-up service. With a driver to load and unload your luggage, a private, air-conditioned car will take you to and from your international departure
point. This service is available within 100 miles of your home at no extra cost.

We know that flying isn’t for everyone. That’s why we have a wide range of cruises that give you the option of travelling by rail. Depart from London’s St Pancras International station, or Ebbsfl eet if available, and you could be in Paris in just over
Tailor your travel
On an Avalon river cruise, you have the freedom to tailor your holiday as you wish.
• Pre- and post-holiday hotel stays
Why not extend your holiday with extra hotel nights before and/or at the end of your holiday? We work with renowned names in the hotel business, such as Hilton and InterContinental.
• Too many hotel nights?
Some of our holidays include hotel stays. If that doesn’t suit you, we can just book the cruise portion for you.
• Make your own way
Our brochure prices include flights, but you don’t have to take our package. We give you the option to book the holiday without the flights.
• Under your own arrangements
If you’d like to explore at your own pace after your holiday with us, we’ll happily extend your flights for you.
Note: Eurostar travel from St Pancras or Ebbsfleet is available on the following river cruises: Paris to Normandy, Burgundy & Provence, Tulips of Northern Holland, Tulip Time, Grand France, Paris, Moselle & The Rhine.
