One of the best things about Avalon’s river ships is that they are small and usually hold an average of no more than 150 guests. They are built to slowly ply the world’s weaving and meandering rivers, sailing off the-beaten-path, and visiting fairy tale villages with quaint squares, and family-owned wineries, bakeries, and restaurants, along the way. Queues are non-existent and excursions, led by experienced locals, accommodate smaller groups of guests at a time, providing every traveller an immersive and authentic experience.
