Overall a beautiful cruise with lovely stops and scenery. The food was terrific, cabins nice, and some staff were very accommodating. The reason for the average rating is: Cruise passengers tend to be in their (late) golden years and ... Read more

Our travel agent suggested this cruise and it turned out to be the highlight of our European holiday. The overall cruise package contained everything we could have wanted and was a thorough adventure into Europe's Rhine River region. After ... Read more

II took this Avalon cruise only six months after we took a cruise on a Viking ship up the Danube so I felt I was in a good position to compare the two cruise lines. First I’ll say both cruises were a lot of fun. One plus for the ... Read more

Avalon Waterways gets two thumbs up. Our cruise director, Christine, is a fountain of knowledge.. All employees from Anto who tidied our cabin, the waiters/waitresses and chefs, Daniel the bartender, Mary Ann (always smiling) met us each ... Read more

We have cruised large ocean going ships quite a few times, but decided to try a river cruise. The Avalon Felicity is a very nice ship and the itinerary was Basel to Amsterdam via the Rhine River. We chose a category A cabin and were ... Read more

I thought Avalon did an excellent job. I've been on ocean cruises before but this was the first river cruise. Probably the most help I can give in a review is from the point of view of a 44-year-old. I think I was the youngest person on ... Read more

After 10 big ship cruises we decided to try a river cruise. Avalon go high marks in the reviews and the timing for the Rhine was good. We enjoyed the change to having just 132 people on board! Excellent service and wait staff. This is NOT ... Read more

This was our first river cruise. We didn't know what to expect. Now after experiencing the cruise down the Rhine our expectations are high. Avalon and the crew of the Felicity far exceeded our dreams. We loved the relaxed atmosphere, the ... Read more

This was our first river cruise. Our cabin was adequate. The shower was good. Storage was very good for a ship. Most passengers were in their 60's. Many older too. Dress was very casual. I should mention the stairs on the ship. The layout ... Read more

For convenience and accessibility, the small ships are great. We have taken several ocean cruises and the size of the ship was a plus. Although our cabin seemed pretty small, we were not in it much. It was very clean and the bed was very ... Read more

Ease of boarding was exceptional, especially if your transfer was included with flight booked with Avalon. Moevenpik is easy to get to if you know that the pickup point for the airport shuttlebus is zone 1. Thanks to advance registration, ... Read more
