Luxe-Level Dining: Avalon Waterways
Step on board one of Avalon’s modern luxury river cruise ships to experience a true feast for the senses.
The clever design, including floor-to-ceiling windows and spacious, beautifully appointed suites, is only surpassed by Avalon’s hard working and friendly team of staff, known for intuitive customer service and unparalleled attention to detail.
Avalon’s careful consideration of every aspect of the cruise extends to their pioneering approach to dining. Gone are the strict schedules and set menus; Avalon guests have the freedom to dine when and how they wish.
NEXT LEVEL DINING
As leaders and innovators in the river cruise industry, Avalon is proud to offer FlexDining, a breakthrough dining experience allowing guests flexibility with meal and snack times.
Choose to indulge in a romantic à la carte dinner at the glass-walled Panorama Dining Room as the majestic sites of Europe and Asia float past.
Feeling like something less formal and more relaxed at lunchtime? Embrace FlexDining and dine alfresco at the Sky Grill, or unwind with new friends in the Panorama Bistro for a late lunch.
Adventurers looking to stay on shore all day can take a picnic hamper to devour on the banks of the river, which would match perfectly with one of the many fine Rieslings available locally.
Early risers can enjoy a pre-dawn continental buffet and watch the sun rise, while sleepy-heads can stay in bed taking in the sweetest view with breakfast delivered to their suite, free of charge.
Avalon’s signature buffet breakfast with a made-to-order egg station is always served with hot coffee, fresh juices and there’s a complimentary sparkling wine option for those who wish to celebrate at every meal.
The choice about where and when to dine is always yours to make on board an Avalon river cruise.

The exclusive and unique Avalon Fresh meal options have been designed by Austrian culinary legends of the healthy dining movement, Karl and Leo Wrenkh.
The brothers Wrenkh were surrounded by exceptional food from childhood as their parents ran a pioneering vegetarian restaurant in Vienna. In 2009, they took over the same restaurant and relaunched it with a cooking school to much critical acclaim.
The Wrenkh brothers’ knowledge of clean, healthy and regional ingredients combined with their love of good food, works perfectly alongside Avalon’s philosophy of always putting the customer experience first.
Enjoy an energising smoothie at breakfast, a delicious salad for lunch or an Asian-inspired stir-fry for dinner. Feel satisfied, sustained and inspired by the fresh, wholesome and innovative flavours of every Avalon Fresh option.
Culinary lovers can relax into a river cruise of a lifetime with Avalon Waterways. Experience the world’s best taste, flavour and nourishment at every luxurious meal – wherever and whenever you choose to take it.
