We did a previous trip with Avalon and had a very good experience. They have a very good reputation and we wanted a cruise line that was rated better than the average line. Having three days in Budapest and four days in Prague allowed us ... Read more

We went with friends who wanted to do this itinerary, so we did not choose it specifically for us. We chose Avalon Waterways on the recommendation of our travel agent, so we did not choose the cruise line specifically for us either. On ... Read more

We chose Avalon because of the stateroom design. The Avalon Expression was beautiful, clean, well designed and the crew was excellent. We selected the Royal suite because we spend a lot of time in our room rather than the lounges. It ... Read more

After arriving in Amsterdam I stayed at the Movenpick Hotel which is very close to where the cruise ships dock so it was a perfect choice. Embarkation was done very easily and quickly from the hotel to the ship. The Expression is a ... Read more

Avalon was recommended by our travel agent. The overall cruise was wonderful. The places we saw were fascinating and the time spent on board very relaxing. But it's the service of the staff that I will remember the most. Within days of ... Read more

This was our first cruise, and our first trip to Europe. We were very cautious about this trip. Would the cruise be worth the money, would the cabin be good enough, what about the staff, language, other costs etc. etc. Typical ... Read more

A fantastic cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam. Avalon Expression was a magnificent, modern and spacious ship. Our cabin on the Royal Deck was cleverly designed and spacious. The queen sized bed was so comfortable and faced the river ... Read more

Avalon Expression is a very nice and pretty new ship. Crew was very attentive and shore excursions were well organized and probably the best part of the trip. Some rain dampened the scenic cruise of the Wachau Valley region and a couple of ... Read more

I have to say that this cruise had been a few years in the planning. There were six in our party and I was chosen to research all of the cruise lines going down the Danube. The process of picking the correct cruise and line was a daunting ... Read more

Wanted to see Budapest, Vienna and Prague in a relaxed fashion. Half way thru the cruise we were told a barge had run aground so the remainder of the trip would be on coaches. Avalon Expression was then used as a hotel base. The coach ... Read more
