I have always wanted to see the tulip fields of Holland in bloom so for our 40th anniversary we chose this cruise. It was even better that we had hoped. We loved the cabin and waking up each morning watching the sites go by even before we got out of bed! It was also nice having a choice if included excursions at each port. Everything was so well organized and the port talks during cocktail hour each evening were very helpful to get us prepared for our adventures the next day. We were amazed at how quickly and efficiently the meals were served to so many in the dining room. The service in every area of the ship was phenomenal as well because it was clear that each member of the staff really enjoyed their job and bent over backwards to make our journey exceptional. We will be back for more Avalon cruises in the future I am sure. Read Less

We chose Avalon for reputation and destinations We liked the fact that we had the option of going on our own at different stops A few standouts were Pesca fis retaurant in Amsterdam and papa Joe’s jazz club. Plan on hopefully another Avalon cruise in the future. Crew and food were exceptional, A few of the excursions were a disappointment - the mechanical music museum and the woman in the museum were terrible. She was mechanical and unappealing. The building actually smelled like musty mold. The wine trip in Alsace was a great disappointment. They only had a few wines to taste (which weren’t very good) and even if we had liked them they didn’t ship. And this was an additional excursion that we paid for. These incidents are reported for your future planning but fortunately and did not affect overall experience of your cruise The coach drivers were all terrific. PS loved the canal boat trips and loved Colmar. But as beautiful as it is was too crowded and might be less so first thing in the mornin. Read Less

What a wonderful experience for our first cruise. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and retirement. Everything was simply perfect from the day we first stepped on the boat to our day of departure. The room was superb. The layout allowed for rom to walk around the bed and the bed facing the full length windows was a treat. What impressed us the most was the high quality and spacious bathroom. Almost like home, well almost. The added feature of having an onboard laundry facility was simply perfect. The food was excellent three times a day and numerous after-hour lighter meals. Wine flowed easily each night. The "special chef" meals were a treat and featured fresh ingredients form the local villages. We even met our Chef in the village at his favorite bakery. It was great. We met many new friends as well. Lots of fun to be had. The excursions were well planned and the tour guides experts on their locale. We have already chosen Avalon for our next cruise in 2017 on the Danube. The last day was hard to leave but they made it easy. The luggage was carried to an awaiting taxi and loaded piece by piece. No cares no worries. Read Less
