When thinking through how to summarize the amazing week I just experienced on my Avalon cruise I figured I would share some of the highlights that made this cruise memorable! The Avalon crew knew me by name! The meals, where you could experience local favorites while trying the included wine and beer for lunch and dinner. The stateroom is filled with your closest friends and new companions you met ...

We always wanted to be on a river cruise and we finally did! After lots of research we decided on Avalon. It was a wise choice! Fantastic people, from the Cruise Director Maria Pascual to all the crew. I'm a Personal Chef and I can tell you the cuisine and the service was first class (fantastic breakfasts). I talked to your executive Chef every day and I even got to meet the Corporate Chef while ...

Finally we can travel again and we got to take our cancelled 2020 cruise with Avalon, down the Danube. Overall we were very satisfied with the beautiful boat and cabins. Housekeeping was also excellent, keeping the room clean. Also the bar service was very good and included beer and wine. The cruise director was top notch and kept us well informed and handled all problems very effectively. Most of ...

We’ve always wanted to take a European River Cruise. On this two week cruise, we visited the countries of Hungary, Slovakia, Austria, Germany, and the Netherlands. Our interests are history, architecture, gardens, food, music, and art. This cruise was perfect for us. We explored beautiful cathedrals, abbeys, castles, small villages, large cities, etc... On the many excursions we we took, our ...

This was my first ever cruise of any kind. It far exceeded my expectations. The ship was beautiful and comfortable. The cabin was tastefully decorated. The French balcony with the floor to ceiling sliding glass doors made the room feel more spacious and made for excellent scenery viewing. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was bigger than I expected. The crew and staff were friendly and ...

The service staff were the best part of the cruise. The food and wine etc were very good. However, I found the sheer numbers of people -148 or thereabouts - quite overwhelming. The ship didn't get past Passau and we were berthed there for 3 days with our 'view' being a stone wall. That's not what I paid for. Why was there no contingency plan? Our river cruise turned into hours of being herded ...

We chose Avalon for our first river cruise because of the itinerary, the amenities offered during the cruise and the cabin layout. The ship was spacious and our cabin was very comfortable. I especially enjoyed the french balcony that allowed us to breath the fresh air and see the river sites clearly. We particularly enjoyed the breakfast and lunch buffets and afternoon tea was a treat. ...

This was not our first river cruise in Europe. We looked a cruise that hit the places we wanted to visit at the times we wanted to go. There were several options to choose from. We then looked for a smaller boat with fewer passengers and larger staterooms. Avalon fit the bill. The front and and back end of the tour included stays in 4 star hotels in Budapest and Bucharest, The hotels were ...

We chose this cruise because we had never been to the previous communist countries.or cruise included a tour everyday that were very informative and interesting. The guides spoke excellent English. Our cabin was the lowest you could buy and it was very nice with a decent bathroom. We loved the dining experience. Breakfast and lunch were buffet with good choices of entree. Dinner was served off a ...
