This was our second cruise on the Rhone/Seine with Avalon. A great experience, great food and all on board were very accommodating. This was a Jazz themed cruise so we had plenty of different musicians on board. Including the Gypsy Kings one night. Every day we were in a different port and given a well planned tour at each stop. In addition there were optional tours to some very interesting places. The dinning room tables are set up to encourage meeting new people. In fact we met some wonderful people that we connected with and will be sure to stay in contact with. Our Cruise Director was very personable, informative and totally on top of things. The entire crew was ultra polite and could not be more accommodating, including the Captain. This was our third River cruise and would highly recommend Avalon and France for a great vacation experience. Love Southern France Read Less

Great staff and knowledgeable... - Very well thought out ship of space and still be "simple elegant" style - Cruise director "Tony" was awesome - Food was well matched to the region along with wines - each of the offered activities where well planned and informative Very enjoyable trip, great opportunists to see the region with out lots of travel time moving from hotel to hotel - Avalon is a "first class" run business at a great price value. These River Boats are great for adult family getaways with activities provided along with time to reconnect with family members. If traveling alone or with couples the staff does a great job of having everyone feel welcome. Anyone looking at these trips need to remember to book in advance as trips sell out quickly. Traveling on river ships, allows a great way to see the the true European Cities and experience the culture. Be sure to arrange these trips with a travel agent who truly understands River Ships - they are a wealth of additional information. Read Less

Overall the cruise was a fantastic experience. The boat itself is very sleek and chic. Cabins are certainly small but the storage and layout is very clever. The salon and deck were always full of people relaxing and socializing, and the restaurant was comfortable and casual. As mentioned, the crew on the vessel is outstanding. Zoltan, in particular, is to be commended for his unflagging professionalism, enthusiasm, and friendliness. He set the tone for the entire experience and is a stellar representative of the Anne Marie, as well as CroisiEurope. Many thanks also to Chef Pierre as well for keeping everyone well fed! The cuisine was very enjoyable, especially the marvelous BBQ on the deck. Excursions were really fun and the guide, Virginie, was AMAZING. Favorites include the walking tour of Aigues-Mortes and the olive oil tasting. The free time in the port cities was also VERY much appreciated. Finally, I was very impressed with the caliber of the cycling experience. The bikes were super easy to ride and the paths along the river were in fantastic shape! Read Less
