Avalon Expression: River Cruise Ship Features
By Natalie Milner | 12 Jun 2013
The latest addition to Avalon Waterways’ fleet, Avalon Expression, is a sleek Suite Ship with itineraries along the Rhîne, Main and Danube rivers. Here we take you through the new cruise ship’s features
Avalon Expression has an elegant and contemporary design throughout, with wall-to-wall panoramic French balconies in each suite allowing guests to relax beside the river from the comfort of their room.
Dining on board ranges from fine dining in The Restaurant and exclusive Panorama Bistro in the Lounge, to open-air barbeques on the Sky Deck.
Avalon Expression‘s streamlined, panoramic windows in both the Lounge and Restaurant frame the passing landscape – and for an even better view you can relax at the front of the ship in the sheltered outdoor Observation Lounge.
The little touches on Avalon Expression, such as the marble and granite bathroom with power shower, extravagant L‘Occitane bath products and dark polished wood – and the beds angled for a perfect view of the river – define this ship as a luxury river cruise experience.
