Today’s world has changed, but what remains certain is Avalon’s commitment to our guests’ safety, comfort and peace-of-mind. To that end, we’ve established a set of enhanced onboard protocols and procedures through a new Avalon Assurance program, to ensure the health – and happiness – of our guests throughout their cruise with us.
