Avalon Waterways is launching the Avalon Saigon.

The new ship has 18 suites with nearly 250 square feet of living space. The Suite Ship provides Avalon’s Open-Air Balconies with floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall panoramic windows measuring nearly 15 feet wide with retractable screen systems and doors that open nine feet to simulate the feeling of sitting outside.

The front of each Open-Air Balcony is a private sitting area with a love seat, chair and table. And travelers can witness life on the Mekong River from their Avalon Comfort Collection Bed.
