We chose this cruise due to the cities that it was visiting, the length of time on the boat and the time frame for the cruise. The cabin was actually bigger than we anticipated. The bathroom was well equipped and appointed. It had ... Read more

Three years ago we took an Avalon cruise on the Rhine River and loved the experience. We decided to take the Christmas Market cruise on the Danube to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed. Avalon does everything so ... Read more

5 nights on the boat I would categorize this as a taste of Cruising on the River. This is our 3rd Avalon Cruise and we decided to try a specialized tour at Christmas time and we enjoyed it. Started out in Prague and all stops exceeded our ... Read more

We selected Avalon because it offered a cruise through the Christmas Markets along the Danube. The ship was beautiful, our stateroom was spacious and lovely. The breakfast and lunch buffets offered many delicious selections, and the ... Read more

This experience was ok, not great, not bad. The highlights were the included orientation tours at each stop, and the great, friendly and efficient crew. Everyone on the ship tried hard to please, but it is hard to say it was an ... Read more

We were on an Avalon Cruise on the Rhine and Moselle from Amsterdam to Luxembourg in 2014. We then took a train to Paris as part of the package. We loved the boat and crew. The boats are the best available, and the food and service were ... Read more

This was our first river cruise, and after looking at several different cruise lines I selected Avalon primarily because of the design of the Panorama Suites. Then when I told my travel agent of my choice she whole hardily agreed that ... Read more

Our first river cruise, and like many people we had been attracted by all the advertising Viking has done in the USA. However, a travel agent recommended AVALON and she was right. We chose the Legendary Danube with pre-cruise in Prague and ... Read more

We chose this cruise as a part of an educational package. Generally the trips have been excellent with this educational tour company so I did not hesitate to book with them on Avalon. This was a newer ship and I was happy to see what ... Read more

This was our first River Cruise (we've been on 4 regular Princess Cruises). Wonderful Cruise and we especially loved the food and the waiters. Good News was that we met some River Cruisers (on a Viking cruise) who had their cruises end ... Read more

No one can predict water levels or heat when they are booking a river cruise. Given that, the cruise staff pulled off our trip and eked thru with the boat touching bottom at one point. We did miss one port so that the Captain could ... Read more

It was our first river cruise and we really enjoy the experience so much that we want to go back soon. First, it was not a easy embarkation due to the low level of the Danube at this time of the year. It was a exceptional situation that ... Read more
