Begin your Avalon YourWay river cruise vacation with two nights in romantic Paris before your cruise. See the legendary landmarks of the “City of Light,” including Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Eiffel Tower, and the Louvre Museum with its elegant glass pyramid contrasting its ancient architecture. Take a city tour to see all the must-see sights! Take a high-speed train from Paris to Luxembourg City and board your Avalon Suite Ship® in Remich on the beautiful Moselle River. Enjoy a guided walk in the charming wine village of Bernkastel and taste some of the region’s best wines. Cruise the Moselle River to the picturesque town of Cochem where the Riesling grape is cultivated.

Cruise through the dramatic Rhine Gorge—the most beautiful stretch of the Rhine River where ancient castles stand on cliffs 400 feet above the water. On a guided walk, see the famous twin-spired cathedral of Cologne, and explore the cobblestone streets of the Old City.
