Avalon Affinity Overview

The 138-passenger Avalon Affinity joined the Avalon Waterways fleet of river cruise ships in May 2009. Itineraries focus on the inland waterways of Holland, Belgium, France and Germany, with cruises sailing on the Rhine, Danube and Mosel Rivers. Here's what you can expect on an Avalon Affinity cruise:

In addition to meals and accommodations, sightseeing excursions led by local guides, onboard lectures and piano entertainment, and wine with dinners are included in the fare. The ship appeals to mostly English speaking passengers in the 55-plus age range.

Cabins, all outside, measure 172 square feet; junior suites are 258 square ft. Cabins on the Royal and Sapphire Decks have "French balconies," sliding glass doors with a protective railing; remaining cabins have picture windows.

Cabin amenities include flat-screen satellite TV, radio, mini-bar, safe and hair dryers. Beds can be configured into two twins or one queen and come with high-quality pillows and duvets and Egyptian cotton linens.

Avalon Affinity has four decks, including a sky deck for sunning and relaxing by the whirlpool. There are multiple lounges, an open-seating dining room, a hairdresser and a fitness center. Smoking is not permitted in interior areas. An onboard elevator is available for guest use.
