Itinerary Overview

Crisp Rieslings. Smooth lagers. Perfect pilsners. There’s much to toast on an Avalon Active & Discovery cruise along the Moselle. Starting with the number of interactive ways cruisers, choosers and doers can experience the joys of Luxembourg and Germany.

Our vast selection of Classic, Discovery and Active excursions lets you decide how to conquer the castles and venture through the villages that beckon from the banks. Pair a wine tasting with a hike, pedal back in time on a bike, or immerse yourself in the magic of the Moselle with a number of moving experiences. Behind the scenes visits to the botanic gardens, biergartens, and lush vineyards along the Moselle will equally set your heart in motion.

Move.
Enjoy a little get-up-and-go on your cruising vacation when you:

•Hike up to the 13th-century Landshut Castle and enjoy a guided tour of the castle with guides in historical costume.
•Enjoy the twists and turns of Cochem’s history on a leisurely bike ride along the Moselle.
•Take an open-air cable car ride to Rüdesheim’s Niederwald Monument and stroll back through rolling vineyards.

And be moved.
Get off the beaten path and relish the world when you:

•Visit one of the oldest mustard mills and taste the secret recipe that’s been spicing things up for more than 200 years.
•Have a barrel of fun as you enjoy a tour and tasting at a famous Koblenz brewery.
•Stop and smell the roses on a botanical journey through Frankfurt’s lush Palmengarten.

Plus, Classic sightseeing is always available in every port along the way.

Start sooner with a two-night hotel stay in Paris! Avalon Choice sightseeing is the perfect highlight of your stay.

Activate your senses and discover a world of wonder in all-new, entirely “you” ways on your personal, passion-packed cruise along the Moselle.

Who goes on Avalon cruise ships?

Avalon caters to English-speaking travellers from North America, the U.K. and Australia/New Zealand. The average age of passengers is mid-50s to 60s, but the mix varies by itinerary, and on four- and five-night cruises, you'll find more 40-something travellers and others trying out river cruises for the first time. Children ages 8 and older are welcome onboard, but there is no formal youth program.


Do I have to dress up on a Avalon cruise?

No, not really. You can't wear shorts at dinner, but, other than that the dress code is casual. At dinner you'll see mostly open-neck shirts and slacks for men; slacks, skirts or dresses for women. Some people op to dress up a bit nicer, though still relatively casual, for the welcome and farewell dinners (only on Europe river cruises).


Is everything free on Avalon cruises?

Exactly what is included varies somewhat with the itineraries. In Europe, Asia and South America, coffee and tea are available free of charge all day long. In Europe a choice of complimentary wine, beer or soft drinks is included with lunch and dinner, and sparkling wine with breakfast. On the Mekong, Ganges and Amazon rivers, select soft drinks and local beer/spirits are available throughout the day and wine is included with lunch and dinner. Wi-Fi is free (except in the Amazon or Galapagos, where it's not available), as is dining (including breakfast in bed and picnic lunches to take on shore) and all onboard entertainment and enrichment. Most shore excursions are complimentary, including the line's Active Adventure options. You'll pay extra for gratuities, salon or spa treatments, laundry, onboard shop purchases and some special excursions.


What are Avalon's most popular activities?

Shore excursions are at the heart of activities on any Avalon sailing. Options can range from active excursions, such as canoeing the Danube or jogging through Amsterdam, to cultural experiences, like following the life of an Austrian worker or taking part in an Amsterdam painting class. Passengers who prefer to explore on their own can use the AvalonGO app loaded with a list of nearby attractions and hours of operation, historical facts, maps and directions as well as local cafes, restaurants, bars and entertainment options. Onboard, most passengers attend enrichment sessions, and the Local Favourites program brings regional performances onboard, as well as classes: tai chi or Mandarin lessons on the Yangtze, culinary demonstrations in France, etc.
