We had previously taken a cruise with Avalon of the Rhine and Moselle Rivers. We loved travelling through the Rhine gorge, so we took the Basel to Amsterdam cruise. This not only gave use a portion of the Rhine and cities in Switzerland, France and Germany we hade not visited before, but also took us again through the beautiful Rhine gorge with its magnificent scenery. We were not disappointed. The ship is amazing, with its French Balcony suite rooms, with the beds all facing the glass walls of the room, which slide open when the weather is permitting. The food and service were better than what we had on former cruises, which I thought would be impossible to match. The shore excursions were very interesting, informative and were worth the time. The extra excursions that we paid for were extraordinary and worth every penny spent. I would highly recommend this cruise to anyone interested in a magnificent experience of the Rhine River.

I was invited by a friend who wanted to try river cruising. This had never been on my radar but it was worth every penny and more. At first glance, the ship is not an eye catcher. Someone on our bus likened it to a 1970s Holiday Inn. ... Read More
I was invited by a friend who wanted to try river cruising. This had never been on my radar but it was worth every penny and more. At first glance, the ship is not an eye catcher. Someone on our bus likened it to a 1970s Holiday Inn. But, that being said, stepping onboard, revealed our home for the next 10 days. Oh boy. The rooms were roomier than I expected. Two twins with end tables so you could walk around the beds. Closet for hanging but not much drawer space. We used our luggage under the beds for incidentals and worked out great. The room was sparklingly clean and kept that way every day. The meals were diverse and yummy. Local fare as we cruised downriver. We had a 'port talk' every evening where our cruise director, Bart, explained what the next day would bring us. I must toot the horn of Bart. I asked him if he knew where a Harley Davidson dealer was in Regensberg. Perfect souvenir for the hubby! He not only knew where it was but offered to go there and buy a shirt for me as it was not near where out tour for the day was. I asked him the next day if he had a chance to go there and he immediately handed me a perfect shirt. I paid him and thought about how lucky that he was our cruise director. He stopped me when we got to Budapest and handed me a map with the route highlighted to another HD dealer in Budapest. I thought that was above and beyond and really appreciate that Avalon employs such great guys. There were some entertainers that boarded the ship in some ports and were truly enjoyable and entertaining evenings. Read Less
