We had an incredible week-long tour to celebrate a friend's birthday. We chose this cruise based on the itinerary and time spent in Paris. This was my second river cruise, although I've cruised on ocean cruise lines numerous times. I like the size of a river cruise boat, the ability to see something new every day and the ability to meet/see a number of the other passengers. The staff was great, especially our wait staff in the dining room. There were 8 of us and we sat at the same table most nights. Our waitress was very attentive and ensured we had a nice experience. The excursions were memorable; my favorites were Monet's garden and Normandy - both places I've wanted to see. The food was superb; much better than I've had on other cruises. My only negative was the piano player. His music was so-so, and when we made requests, he wasn't willing to accommodate them. The other entertainment was good. Read Less

This was my first trip to Europe. If I were to travel again it would most definitely be with Avalon. The staff was fantastic, tour options were wonderful and I felts as though I was able to see so much in such a short time. The food was very well done, a lot of choices for dinner that spoke to my culinary pallet. Tony, our director was always there to help if we had any questions. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and in particular Natalie was a delight. We also had the pleasure of meeting a WWII survivor and hear her story of how her father was taken by the Nazis: it was a powerful one that I will not soon forget. The only down side to the cruise was the music selection was a bit old for my taste ( I am in my late 20's) but other than that everything was just amazing. I would say to anyone looking to go on a vacation to check into Avalon (and I have already recommended to quite a few people at this time!). Read Less
