Overall the river cruise was very good, it was just misleading in selling to us that all cabins are balcony, when in fact the level one was not. The several ports visited was more than what I expected. There was race discrimination ... Read more

We liked the idea of visiting many cities over a short period of time with no hassles e.g booking in and out of hotels and transfers etc. We found the staff friendly, the food very good and the accommodation outstanding. The tours ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed this cruise. The staff, cabin, dining and excursions were all excellent. What we really liked is that in most cases we were able to disembark in or close to the town or city we were to visit. If an unexpected problem ... Read more

Let me preface this by saying we are not cruise people. We've only taken a couple of other cruises on small ships (Windstar - great!! and Antarctica excursion) but never a river cruise. We chose Avalon because they advertised a 3-Day ... Read more

We have taken many ocean cruises, and felt it was time to try a river cruise since they have become so popular. While there are some similarities, this is a far different experience a large ocean liner. Some examples: Easy on/off the ship, ... Read more

After reviewing many of the river cruise lines we selected Avalon Waterways as being able to provide what we wanted at an acceptable price. Avalon fully met our expectations and we were very pleased we had chosen the company. This is a ... Read more

Went on 15 day cruise Amsterdam to Budapest. Ship, crew, food, cabin all excellent. You tend to travel overnight, mooring up during the day, often for just a few hours for quick tour either on foot or by coach. We would have preferred ... Read more

My wife and I are in our mid '60's. This was our first river cruise. The Panorama is a newer ship in great shape, with sliding glass doors on all of the rooms that are above the waterline. We found this to be an exceptional feature that ... Read more

This was our first river cruise on any line. Before deciding, we researched many options and since we were a fairly large group (six couples), chose Avalon for the destination (wanted multiple countries), price, and generally good reviews. ... Read more

The ship was everything it was advertised to be. We had a 300 sq ft Royal suite and it was very well designed. Breakfast and lunch was very good, but the dinners were so-so. The quality of the wine and beer with dinner was of good ... Read more
