I really wanted to see the infamous Christmas markets-and this trip delivered. Several good markets in Vienna, and Regensburg - beware the Nuremburg market may be too crowded for some- Lots of interesting and informative tours and enjoyable bonus experiences ($add on- Opera night and Schönbrunn Castle - both well worth it). Happy hour daily includes free drinks, and liberal pouring at meal times. ...

Wanted to travel the Danube for it's great itinerary and finish with 3 great capitals of their respective countries - ie build up to the best! Weather was spectacular - we were very lucky as this time of year it had predicted a lot of rain which we didn't get thank goodness. This ship is excellent, modern, thoughtful design with great amenities and superb helpful and friendly staff. The ...

We booked late for a River Cruise with Avalon, leaving Vilshofen on October 24th. We flew to Munich, then made our own transfer arrangements to the boat, the Envision. It was a first river cruise for us & once on the boat, it was sheer luxury! From the moment we stepped out of our taxi and were told to leave our cases for the crew, this set the tone for the whole trip. The staff, the ...

We chose Avalon 3 years ago, right before Covid started and originally were going to cruise the Rhine. Re-booked for 2022, we both got Covid a week before the cruise and could not go. However, Avalon gave us another year to use our credit - amazing, as we didn't purchase travel insurance. We switched to the Danube River cruise because it fit our schedule best. Everything surpassed our ...

My wife and I selected this particular cruise for three reasons: we wanted to sail The Danube on a relatively new boat, we wanted active tour options, and we had a great experience previously sailing with Avalon on the Rhine River. Our expectations were exceeded on our October 2023 cruise, and we had a wonderful experience. We found the crew and staff on the Avalon Envision to be ...

We were initially searching for a Danube river cruise company (our dream vacation for over a decade) that did not present any unnecessary obstacles such as vaccination cards, etc...(Kudos to Avalon for trusting its travelers to be responsible and in preserving their privacy!) We finally settled on Avalon based on weeks of research and reading reviews. Where do I start? The ship: ...

My wife and I are seasoned ocean cruisers but this was our first river cruise. I really wasn’t sure if I would like being on a much smaller ship on a river. I read lots of the reviews before the cruise and convinced myself that this was going to be good. I was right. Everything they said would happen did. The plane landed in Budapest and sure enough we were met and transferred to the ship with no ...

We chose this Avalon cruise because of the port stops and adventure excursions. There were many excursions to choose from to satisfy everyones’ interests. The Avalon staff were knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. Helmut had informative port talks and was very helpful if you had a question about other possible places of interest to visit while at port. The dining room wait staff made the ...

The ship, itinerary, staff, drink variety, and cleanliness were all great. The wifi quality and access needs improving. The shore excursions weren't always clearly or accurately described, especially with respect to key sights to be seen, and the terrain and level of exertion required (we had a couple of tough hikes that some guests definitely should not have been on). Entertainment was a bit ...

Great cruise ship. We have sailed before and had a panoramic room which was wonderful. This time there were none available so we had a cabin on the lowest floor with no window. We found the room very small and claustrophobic, great as a single but not for a couple. Last time I lived just relaxing in the room literally watching the world go by but this time I couldn’t wait to leave the ...
