08_19-avalon-snooze-etv1FREEDOM TO DREAM. ROOM TO RELAX

We'd rather have smiles on our guests' faces than white gloves on our crew. Our focus on board is to ensure each guest is comfortable and relaxed, leaving the pomp and circumstance to others. Our pride comes from friendly, personalized service in perfect balance with the warm, inviting spaces throughout your Avalon ship. Your comfort and unsurpassed hospitality of our crew is why happiness flows on each and every Avalon ship.

SMALL DETAILS MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE

It's the little things. From luxurious L'Occitane® bath products on a marble countertop to your choice of mattress firmness. It's premium spirits in our upscale bar, and 24-hour self-service beverages whenever you crave a cappuccino, hot chocolate, or something sweet to eat. It's a well-stocked library in the Club Lounge to play a game of cards or the choice to sleep late with complimentary continental breakfast served in your room. Included wine with dinner is nice. Even better is wine from the vineyards you've seen out your window. You'll find these and many more small details throughout your Avalon Suite Ship® to make you smile. That's the Avalon difference.
