Avalon Waterways operate 20 river cruise vessels, most of which are owned by them. They offer cruises on Europe’s waterways, Egypt’s Nile, the Galapagos, and the Mekong River.
History of Avalon Waterways
Avalon Waterways was launched in 2004 by the parent company Globus Family of Brands (previously known as Group Voyagers). They expanded rapidly between 2008 and 2012, when the fleet introduced nine new “Suite Ships”. They continued to grow their fleet through 2016 with another 11 ships.
In 2019, they introduced Avalon Envision, but they also retired four ships that year. In 2020, Avalon was scheduled to debut Avalon View, but due to the pandemic it didn’t cruise with passengers until 2021. Currently Avalon Waterways owns 16 river vessels and charters four vessels from other companies. They use River Advice for the management of their fleet.
