My experience on the Panorama!

Review for Avalon Panorama to Europe - River Cruise

I chose it because of the single supplement was a good price! My cabin was very comfortable! It had a lovely view, but because the wTer level on the Danube was so low that often the view was another ship! I know the water level is an act of God, but I feel we should have been informed before sailing and given the opportunity to cancel because several of the locations we were supposed to visit had ...

We wanted something more interactive and small. Meeting almost everyone was one of the more surprising positives. The food was high quality, local style cuisines for each area and standard foods if you chose. On a 14 day cruise, we were able to do 17 different excursions. All but two of these were included. Having everything included was burden free. Flights, transfers, tips - even for the ...

I traveled with Globus to South America in 2000 and was impressed with the experience. Also I had many recommendations from friends and associates on the Avalon experience. The airfare was a bargain. Accommodations before and after the cruise were excellent as were the transfers to and from the ship. Being a diabetic, I was used to eating earlier than the 7 pm sitting but managed to adjust ...

A Few Misconceptions

The Danube cruise is going to be pretty much the same, whichever line you choose. We chose Avalon, and generally, the ship’s appointments and food were quite fine. But perhaps you have a few misconceptions as you make your decision on which river to choose, and this can help you. In our case, we chose the Danube because we had already been to some of the Rhine stops on past land tours. But we were ...

This was my first river cruise and I was not disappointed! It was very relaxing to sit on-board and watch the beautiful scenery float by. The port excursions were anywhere from easy-to-walk to strenuous, but you choose which you want to partake in. I cannot say enough about the staff!! Everyone, from the cruise director down to the cleaning crew, were friendly, helpful, and excellent in ...

Some friends had done this same cruise last year and rated it very highly, and I had always wanted to visit Prague and Budapest. I agree with the rating. The staff was wonderful, the meals reflected local cuisine and were quite good, and the excursions, both those that came with the cruise and the add-ons, were superb, done by local people with a lot of knowledge. The other passengers were ...

I chose this cruise for a first-time trip to Europe based on recommendations from friends. Traveling as a single female, I felt very safe and loved the size of the ship. My cabin was fantastic and always spotless. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The Panorama staff was absolutely fantastic! The Captain was wonderful and I feel like it trickled down to all of the staff. They all ...

I chose this trip because my sister, brother-in law, and I got a great Friends and Family discount that we could pass up. The ship was lovely, food excellent, smaller size of ship and total passengers (125) made for an intimate friendly experience. I especially enjoyed having time in Budapest and Prague to explore and relax before and after the cruise portion of the adventure. The shore ...

Age 70s

We chose this cruise as we knew we would see lots of castles, beautiful churches and pretty towns and villages and we are particularly keen on scenery and wanted to see Vienna and Budapest. We would have liked a little more time in Cologne and Passau but realise that sometimes it is not possible for this to happen due to our sailing times. All the staff were helpful and friendly at all times. Our ...

Overall the river cruise was very good, it was just misleading in selling to us that all cabins are balcony, when in fact the level one was not. The several ports visited was more than what I expected. There was race discrimination on service especially the head of the dining or banquet including a female server. People were already seated and having their wine and were asked to leave and ...
