With the new Avalon Envision set to launch in a couple months, Avalon Waterways announced plans to introduce another ship in 2020. The Avalon View, expected to sail the Rhine River, will mark the company’s 14th Suite Ship in Europe and its 17th worldwide.

Both the Avalon Envision and Avalon View are 443 feet long and offer two Royal Suites (300 square feet), 65 Panorama Suites (200 square feet) and 16 staterooms (170 square feet). The Avalon Envision, with “Eat Pray Love” author Elizabeth Gilbert as its godmother, will launch this April, offering river cruises along the Danube.

Starting this year, Avalon’s fleet consists entirely of Suite Ships with an average of age of six years. Most accommodations fall in the company’s Panorama Suite category. Available on two full decks on each ship in Avalon’s collection, these rooms feature open-air balconies with wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows. The Panorama Suites also offer large marble bathrooms and beds facing the window.
