While you're on the river, take advantage of enrichment programs to delight the mind and broaden your understanding of the region you're traversing. Through Avalon's wide network of lecturers, you'll enjoy discussion and presentations from Egyptologists while traveling the Nile River, naturalists while visiting the Galápagos, cruise directors in Europe Southeast Asia and China, and special guest speakers throughout your journey. Once your hunger for knowledge is satisfied, indulge in world-class dining at the Avalon Panorama. Breakfasts are lavish and expansive, with complimentary sparkling wine and continental breakfast served in your stateroom upon request.
