I really wanted to see Vienna and go on a short river cruise. I liked visiting the small towns and enjoyed learning about saffron. I wish we stayed a little longer in Munich . That hotel was fabulous. I have recently been put on a gluten free diet and thought I might have problems with food. No way - they were very organized. On the first day, after the safety drill, they had a meeting ...

We have been thinking about a river cruise since retirement 5 years ago. Long time friends called and asked if we wanted to join them on Avalon Visionary for the Rhine and Moselle. So glad we did. It was our first cruise. The cruise was a total delight. Great scenery, comfortable, wonderful food. The entertainment was well chosen, including the on-board piano player. Service both in the ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This was our first river cruise. We chose the 8-day cruise for length of time & German concentration. We did extend our cruise arriving 1 1/2 days early in Amsterdam & explored on our own. We also stayed in Zurich for 1 1/2 days before flying back to Amsterdam, then home the next day. We did have several issues with the Marriott Renaissance Hotel in Zurich, but got them ...

This was our first time on a river cruise. I loved loved loved it! My husband liked it very much but the jury is still out on river vs ocean for him. We both thought the ship (Avalon Visionary) was lovely. While the cabins were nicely appointed and the beds extremely comfortable, I would not get the basic cabin again. We had a long narrow window up at the ceiling that I could not see out of. ...

I took this cruise with my folks (87 and 82) after talking about it for years. This was the first river cruise by any of us. It more than surpassed our expectations. The shuttle picked us up at the airport and delivered us to the boat around 11:30 am. While we couldn't access our rooms until 4:30, all of our luggage was taken care of for us and we were allowed to hang out on the boat in some of ...

We wanted to take a European cruise that saw as many parts of Europe as possible. This didn’t disappoint. We saw many beautiful sites and would highly recommend this cruise. The crew was wonderful. They attended to our every need. KC took exceptional care of us during meals. She laughed with us and was spot on with recommendtions. She worked endless hours and you never knew she was ...

I signed up because a friend needed a roommate. I had been disappointed by a former cruise on a much larger ship, so I didn't expect much. Embarkation was smooth and painless. The staff were friendly and helpful. All meals were wonderful, but especially the 4-course dinners in the evening. There was variety and no matter what choice you made, it was delicious for the palate and the eyes, ...

We chose this cruise as our July 2015 Main cruise was cancelled due to low water. Avalon was kind enough to totally refund our money and give us each a $500 credit to be used by end of 2016. Not wanting to chance the Main again we chose the Rhine / Moselle cruise and boy, are we glad we did. We expected cool rainy weather and were prepared with layers and umbrellas which worked ...

We selected this cruise for its rich itinerary. It provides a glimpse into life along the Rhine and Moselle Rivers today and its history back to Roman times. The accommodations and service were good. Food was excellent; but portions at dinner were small. This was okay with us, but someone with a larger appetite, might be disappointed. Wine selections and quantity was more than adequate. The ...

Wanted to cruise the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers. Switzerland, France, Germany, Czech Republic and Austria. Gorgeous. The ship was very nice. Water levels were high so we didn't board until second day. Our cabin was nice, food pretty good. Service is excellent. However for the price it was very expensive compared to ocean cruises. Of course river cruises include all the tours guided. Dining ...
