Avalon's cutting-edge fleet of Suite Ships grew by three in 2014! In addition to the Avalon Poetry II and Avalon Illumination, the striking Avalon Impression entered the waters of Europe's Rhine, Main, and Danube Rivers. Like its sister ship, the Avalon Expression, the Impression features two full decks of Panorama Suites with Wall-to-Wall Panoramic Windows that transform the living space into a unique Open-Air Balcony. With 200 square feet, Panorama Suites are more than 30% larger than the industry standard, affording you the incomparable opportunity to wake each morning facing the splendid passing scenery. Onboard amenities include an alternative dining option in the Panorama Bistro, an expanded fitness center, complimentary Wi-Fi access, and a spacious Sky Deck with premium lounge chairs, whirlpool, and light al fresco lunches at the open-air bistro
