Cruisers Can Be Choosers

One of the many joys of travel is the feeling of freedom that comes with it. Avalon Choice is a unique concept that allows you to personalize every element of your cruise. Elegant four-course dinner or a more casual approach in our Panorama Bistro? Ancient village by foot or bicycle? You decide what and where to eat on board, how you wish to explore the destination, and even the style and pace at which to experience many of the included port excursions - at no extra cost.

You can select included excursion and onboard activity options based on what interests you most, so you can experience your cruise as you prefer... at your  own pace. The 3 types of included excursions available on every Avalon Europe cruise:

A local expert is ready to guide you through the history and heritage of local destinations and the "must see" sites.

Inspiring and interactive hands-on activities designed to speak to your interests - spend your day immersing yourself in the destination’s unique culture.

Embark on energetic excursions keeping you in motion and on the go — from a guided jogging tour, to biking, paddling, and hiking your way through scenic locales.

Small Groups. Big Experiences

Cosmos has made group experiences even smaller with SMALL-GROUP DISCOVERY tours on select departures through Central & South America, Asia, and Africa. We’re also giving travelers the option to choose a Small-Group Discovery on select departures in Europe, the U.S., Canada and the South Pacific. With an average of 20-24 guests per departure, guests will enjoy a Small-Group Discovery that promises room to roam, while getting up-close and personal to fascinating places.

When you choose Cosmos you’re choosing to explore the world in a small group of like-minded travelers: People who stick together from start-to-finish. Now more than ever, there’s great comfort – and extraordinary confidence – in that choice.
