Outstanding in every way: Avalon Illumination Cruise Review by Mazeroski
Overall Member Rating
Outstanding in every way
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
The rooms are perfect. Very well thought out. Plenty of room for all of our clothes. Very clean. Beautiful big windows looking out at the scenery although we spent most of our boat time on the upper deck.
The meals were all wonderful. Lots of choice for breakfast and lunch. The dining room was noisy but not unbearable. I bring this up because on a previous cruise with Avalon on the Rhone the More dining room was so noisy you could not have a conversation with your neighbor. The Illumination clearly has better soundproofing.
The excursions were a real treat. The local guides were all superb ranging from very good to outstanding. There were many highlights but I think the thing we enjoyed the most was the master's concert in Prague. I will never forget listening to the magical performances in the small hall once used by Mozart. Prague is full to bursting with tourists but just overlook them and feel the history around you. I want to go back.
This is our second Avalon cruise and we would rate them both 5 stars. The ship, the rooms, the crew, the excursions, the guides; everything is very professional and customer oriented. I hope that I can go on another cruise with them. Outstanding! Less
Cabin review: E316 Deluxe Stateroom with Window
Very comfortable bed for two. Very clean. Well thought out arrangement. We loved the large glass doors looking outside; the best in the industry. Very clean bathroom with good soaps and a hairdryer. We like the flat screen tv that showed the front view of the boat. High quality build. Plenty of storage room. There was always fresh bottled water. Perfect, even though you spend little time there.Read All Deluxe Stateroom with Window (E) Reviews >>
