This was our virgin cruise; neither of us had even been on any passenger boat other than a ferry. We loved our cabin, enjoyed the people-watching and quickly found amusing dinner companions. The whole thing was an excellent, unforgettable ... Read more

I felt the over all experience was a very good value. Ship even though a bit old was kept clean & tidy. Cabins were a nice size, with ample bathroom space & bed was comfortable. Staff was very attentive & friendly. By the ... Read more

For years I have been planning to visit more cities in Europe, but always got scheduling conflicts for flights back to the USA. Two years ago I learned about river cruising and it began to appeal to me, so did some research about river ... Read more

Avalon surpassed my expectations for our first experience in river cruising. Their attention to detail was flawless. From the moment we landed in Zurich we were comfortably welcomed and made to feel at home. The ship is beautiful and ... Read more

The value of this river cruise was not good. We had the top floor rooms which cost a bit more but it was over $1000 / night per couple! For this price I expected the best of everything and the biggest disappointment was the arrogant and ... Read more

We selected this particular river boat cruise as it coincided with the conclusion of our Germany / Austria land tour and offered a slight discount in conjunction with the Globus / Avalon family. The level of service was 'Outstanding' in ... Read more

After 18 ocean cruises this was our first river cruise, we booked knowing that all the things we are use to wouldn't be onthis smaller ship. While the Felicity isn't a large ship, we did find it a great experience.Great beds, storage space ... Read more

The destination of the Rhine River valley with a beginning in Amsterdam and ending in Zurich was compelling!Amsterdam was wonderful with its museums and cafes and canals.The stops along the cruise were noteworthy,especially in Strasbourg ... Read more

I always wanted to cruise the Rhine. We chose Avalon because it offered a smaller ship with fewer passengers, and with more freedom to manage our own time. We had only been on one cruise (Disney, with family), and we were turned off by ... Read more

The ship was spotless, the cabin was nice with sufficient room. The dining room was lovely and the food was good. I wouldn't say the food was outstanding or memorable, but it was all very good. The entertainment was just right with one ... Read more

We decided to go on a Rhine River cruise after having had a wonderful experience with Avalon on a Danube River cruise two years ago. This cruise on the Rhine River was everything we hoped for and more. The Avalon Felicity is a great ... Read more

After watching Downton Abbey and seeing the advertising for the Viking Cruises, I was interested:) We had never been to Europe or on a river cruise. We feel ocean cruising is okay, just SO many people and often public places are so ... Read more

We arrived three days early in Zurich and enjoyed the city. We went on a free walking tour, which was excellent. The Zurich Card is a transit card for 24 or 72 hours, well worth the price. It includes part of Lake Zurich. A few ... Read more

We wished for a smaller cruise...fewer people, and this was it! It was fun! Most all the travelers were outgoing and fun and funny. Food was great, with beautifully presented plated dinners. Abundant choices for breakfast and lunch ... Read more

We wanted a river cruise, had already ventured to Eastern Europe, so the Rhine was a very good choice for us. While some people think it not terribly scenic, we loved it. Our ship was not one of the newer ones and we were a bit concerned ... Read more

I chose this cruise because I really wanted to see the region around the Rhine River. Rhine River cruises seem to be very popular because I had tried to book one a few years ago in November for the following summer, and everything was ... Read more

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're a couple of sixty somethings embarking on our first cruise together. My partner loves cruising in the eastern Med but the prospect of cruising on large ships with gazillions of passengers is my idea of hell, so this was a compromise. ... 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
