Jewish Heritage Cruise was way above our expectations. Two excursions included everyday. Way more than was advertised. Lecturers/Speakers on board were excellent. Chef and Cruise Director modified things to meet the special topic cruisers. Incredible state room opened Completely so we cruised in bed with the room open to river sounds and smells. Great food beautifully presented. Class A hotels at both Budapest and Prague with perfect locations and excellent views. Very high level buses for tours. Almost all guides had excellent English. Broke groups into small like 20 people so big buses half empty. Whole ship only about 120 people. Great sound speaker system on all tours. A few optional tours were good and not high priced. Wait staff very friendly and efficient. In trying to find something negative to say: Marketing materials said there would be nightly 10:30 food that didn’t happen. Also, tea time was almost always taken down before tours returned to ship. Bar wait staff was not really interested in selling drinks - didn’t work the room during happy hour or during lectures, didn’t know what liquor they had, etc. Marketing materials and even signs on ship said they had a beauty salon but crew said that was closed years ago. None of the negatives hurt the trip which was fantastic and we are veterans of 20+ cruises. Read Less

I had never cruised on the Rhine before, and I sell a lot of Avalon river cruises, so I thought it was time to experience one of the most popular river cruises for myself. I did the Danube last year with Avalon, and the more I experience Avalon river cruising, the easier it is for me to sell it to customers who contact me. Just wanted to let you know that my friend and I had an INCREDIBLE and AMAZING experience our our Rhine cruise September 29 - October 6. I love selling Avalon, and after two fabulous cruise experiences for myself (one on Danube in 2017 and now this one on the Rhine), it makes it easier for me to relate to my customers better and give them first hand knowledge about what they can expect when they book an Avalon river cruise with me. The crew on the Avalon Tranquility II this year (and the Avalon Panorama last year), as always, was amazing! I even had the same cruise director, Stefano, on both of my cruises. He is exceptionally good at what he does. I need to pass along this story about what happened to me on this cruise: October 1, 2018, my postings on Facebook: I have had major dental work all year. Two months ago 3 Crowns put on the lower right. All was fine until a couple days ago, the tooth in front of the 3 new molar Crowns started to hurt a bit. By yesterday it was painful and sore jaw. No dentists open in AMS on Sat or Sun. Sailed for Cologne yesterday afternoon. Tylenol helped the pain last night. Woke up with swollen glands on the right and now my thyroid is swollen. So this morning- Our wonderful cruise director, Stefano, who is fluent in German, called a dentist in Cologne this morning. I have an appointment in an hour. I just want some antibiotics until I can get back home to Venice. *************** Dental update - Stefano walked with me to the dental office; translated in German to the receptionist, and translated their patient form so I could fill it out. I love him for that! I love German dentists not only that I love how little they charge as the same procedure in the states would probably cost me $1000 they only charge me €164 but a very complete treatment- Dr. did an exam he took an x-ray, drilled a hole in the tooth, did a root canal to clean out the infection and said that it was draining pus had to leave a hole in the tooth gave me an antibiotic prescription and told me how to get to the pharmacy to fill the prescription, and gave me a liquid anti-septic that I can use to spray in the tooth three times a day with the syringes he gave me With the doctor and his staff‘s limited English google translate and a translate program he had on his dental office computer we got along just fine. He was very competent and pain-free and I certainly hope that when the numbness wears off that it doesn’t hurt any longer he said the swelling will go down in two days, Clean it three times a day take my antibiotics two times a day and go see my dentist when I get back Read Less

This is our second experience with Avalon cruises. We were extremely pleased each time. The service we received was excellent. The staff is very attentive to your needs and very friendly. Our cruise director Brahm was excellent. Always had a smile on his face and made sure we knew what was happening and when. Would highly recommend Avalon for a river cruise and will definitely travel with Avalon again. The dining staff was fantastic especially Michel and Dani. They both knew what we needed without us even asking. Drinks were at our table as soon as we sat down. Michel knew our drink order after our first dinner. We didn't have to ask for drinks. Dani provided us with advice and he was never wrong. Jerry our cabin attendant always had our cabin looking great and even provided us with some neat animals formed with our bath towels, a nice touch. Our ship, Imagery II, was very nice, clean and updated. We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise portion of our vacation. Would recommend a river cruise with Avalon. Andy and Karen Frank Read Less

Our grandparents took me and my sister on this cruise. This was our first Avalon Waterways cruise. The overall experience on the cruise was very good! Some of the shore excursions were rushed though. For example, in Hiedlberg the castle tour did not cover much at all and we had little time in the city. Other cities would have been much more enjoyable with more time in them, also. The restaurant food was delicious and there were many options. All of the staff were excellent. Both the embarkation and disembarkation went very smoothly. Our cruise director was very organized and so were the rest of the staff. The rooms were nicely cleaned and set up each night. Over all this was a very good Avalon Waterways cruise along the Rhine River. We really enjoyed this cruise and would definitely recommend this cruise on the Rhine to our family and friends. Read Less

Something totally different from a standard ocean cruise -- Christmas markets throughout Europe in the winter! Excellent cruise overall, with great food, friendly service and a clean, new ship in perfect shape -- even in the face of rainy weather in the 40s. Got to meet a lot of interesting people from around the world. The ports were fascinating, beautiful and the excursions uniformly first-rate, interesting and understandable. One of the highlights was the cruise director, who gave nightly summaries of upcoming ports and kept us informed about things to expect in the day(s) ahead. She was a natural comedienne as well -- intelligent, articulate, very funny, very friendly and great one-on-one as well as in front of the entire passenger contingent. Clearly professionalism across the board is valued among the crew, and the cruise director stood out as being far superior to any counterpart on the 30 or so ocean cruises that we have taken. Even the captain was accessible and willing to engage guests throughout the week. Oh, and the food and wine were superb! I would recommend this cruise line without hesitation! Read Less

Selected as we wanted to visit Amsterdam and then travel the Rhine Rive. Great stops with fun and interesting tours. One issue with trip was a cancel excursion due to rain where we were not refunded the cost of the excursion. Avalon states we were on another excursion when we were not. After going through travel agent for resolution, we were never refunded the cost of the excursion It was order # 1064450, 11 August, 2017, Cycling Through The Dutch Countryside. 118 EUR. Other than this issue, cruise was excellent and would highly recommend to others. All meals were excellent with a great selection and variety. Enjoyed the wine and beer with our dinners. Service was also excellent and no issues at all on the cruise as to service. Used the laundry service and it was very fast and perfect work. And one of the best parts of the cruise was meeting many new friends and enjoying their company. Read Less
