Avalon Waterways’ history can be traced back to 1928 where it had its humble start as a boatmaking company. Back then, the giant snaking rivers of Europe acted as one of the major ways to travel and Avalon was and still is the major river cruise operator in the continent. The people of Avalon Waterways treat their company like a family heirloom, with utmost care and therefore such company culture is visible through the way Avalon treat their guests, embraced and respected as if a longed relative.
