Avalon Panorama Suites

Offering guests the perfect blend of elegance and ease, there’s a reason our ships are the critics’ darlings. Avalon’s boutique-hotel-inspired Panorama SuitesSM – available on two full decks of every Suite Ship – feature the industry’s only Open-Air Balcony® with the widest-opening windows in cruising.
Providing wider openings for the wide-eyed, Avalon Waterways Open-Air Balconies were designed with our guests’ views in mind. A Panorama Suite highlight on the Suite Ships of Avalon, these wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows open 7-feet wide in Europe and 11-feet wide in Southeast Asia … Wider than any other balconies in the industry.
Avalon’s innovative, no-one-does-it-like-this Open-Air Balconies blur the line between outside and in while forming a comfortable and spacious seating area for six and creating an open invitation to discover and dream.  Even better?  Open-Air Balconies do not sacrifice room space.  In contrast, they invite our guests to enjoy 100 percent of their Panorama Suite, 100 percent of the time. When guests choose an elevated cruise with Avalon, one thing is certain … their outlook of the world has never been brighter.
