Inspired by Local Ingredients. Created by Top Chefs. Savored by All Aboard.

In addition to providing travelers the chance to immerse themselves in each destination they visit, we help them enjoy local cuisines, inspired by local ingredients and created by some of Europe's most highly skilled chefs, as well as regional wines on board our ships.

With help from our top European chefs, we offer cruisers the dining experience they crave. Some of the highlights of our vast menu of dining choices include:
Giving cruisers a choice of appetizer, salad, entrée, cheese and dessert
Featuring local fare options at each meal
Highlighting sustainable cuisine on our French itineraries
Providing cruisers more healthy menu options including low calorie, low sodium and glucose-free cuisine
Introducing Night Fare, served at 10:30 PM to cap off each day with a treat

And, with Avalon, the "most important meal of the day" really is the "most important." In addition to providing our travelers Early- and Late-riser breakfast options, we provide them complimentary sparkling wine – great for Mimosas – and made-to-order egg stations as well as a robust breakfast buffet. Guests can also order continental breakfast in their room and have drinks delivered throughout the day.

Avalon's menu of options doesn't begin and end with food. In addition to offering cruisers the customary complimentary wine, beer or soft drinks at dinner and soft drinks included with lunch, we feature a Cocktail Hour on our ships for cruisers interested in enjoying local wine, beer and other spirits before dinner, while socializing with fellow travelers. Complimentary cappuccino, espresso, latte and premium, Lavazza coffee are also provided to our passengers throughout the day. And, if that's not enough, we provide cruisers alcoholic and non-alcoholic drink packages that can be pre-purchased.

We also recognize that many of our cruisers are celebrating special occasions on our ships. That's why we offer them the chance to commemorate a birthday or anniversary with Celebration Package selections.

Tipping policy

Gratuities on board and on land are not included in the cruise price (except for Exclusive Collection cruises & New Zealand & Australian Guests). Tipping is a way to show your satisfaction for good service and is part of the cruising way of life. Many Australians and New Zealanders are unfamiliar with this custom and are unsure what to do when onboard, therefore Avalon Waterways have built in the cost to your cruise fare for all cruises in Europe. Please note we are unable to facilitate pre paid gratuities in Egypt, China or South America.

Children

n our many years of cruising experience, we have found that children under the age of eight typically are too young to fully enjoy a cruise vacation. Because of this and for the safety and enjoyment of all passengers, we do not accept children under eight years of age. In addition, please note that there are no special arrangements or activities for children on our ships.
