Wonderful Seine River Cruise

This was our first river cruise, but we have been on 5 ocean cruises, and this was far more intimate and relaxing. We explored Paris for only one day before the cruise. Embarkation and disembarkation could NOT ...

Avalon Set the Bar High for Our First Cruise

My husband and I chose Avalon Waterways because we liked the idea of a smaller ship. We liked that a lot of the excursions were included in the price and who can resist laying in bed and looking out on the water ...

Normandy Adventure

We chose Avalon because the Viking Cruise was sold out to be perfectly honest. We are very glad the Viking Cruise was sold out and we found Avalon. After hearing experiences that our friends have had on Viking ...
