Half a cruise is better than none ?

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Impression

beggemoot-rojo
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This was our first River cruise, While it was fun it was very different from an Ocean cruise. There is a lot of busing everywhere you go,The water was too high to do most of the cruise. You sit at a dock in what is a very expensive floating hotel. I go on a cruise to cruise so this really is not for me. In the summer I guess the water is too low. The food was very good and crew was exceptional. ...

We wanted to go across Europe on the three rivers, Danube, Main and the Rhine. We did the North Sea to the Black Sea Sailing. The Avalon ship was excellent and the crew was courteous, efficient and eager to help. The food was very good, with local specialties, and several regular favorites always available. Free happy hour, plus wine and beer served at lunch and dinner, keeps your bar tabs small. ...

Exciting Cruise down the Danube

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Impression

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We just finished the Active and Discovery cruise on the Danube from Croatia to the Black Sea. Most everything went off as planned. We arrived in Zagreb, and the accommodations provided by Avalon at the Sheraton were very nice. We were on our own for dinner, but we had a welcome cocktail and introductory meeting that evening. This is where we met our Cruise Director, Daniela. If I don't say it ...

Eastern Europe on an amazing cruise

10+ Cruises • Age 20s

We choose this cruise mainly because we had never been to any of the places this went to and we weren't disappointed. The first 3 days in Bucharest/Transylvania were amazing. The hotels were first class and the tours were beyond expectation. Peles castle was breathtaking. Bran castle at night was fun. The meals before the cruise were excellent. Once onboard, the service was fantastic. Our ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This was our first river cruise and we loved it! We found it totally different from an ocean cruise and enjoyed the smaller setting. Cruising the Danube, we visited Hungary, Slovakia, Austria, Germany and Czech Republic. (Stayed in a hotel in Prague 2 nights). We stayed in a Panorama Suite with a full wall of glass sliders that allow you to watch the world go by from your bed. This was a really ...

Lots to do but too exhausting

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Impression

lynfred
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

I wanted to see Budapest and Vienna but I ended up enjoying the smaller cities along the way. our ship, which was supposed to be a year old was swapped for a ship that was over 10 years old. We were stranded on shore two times because of problems with the ship. I did not know how exhausting the touring would be, especially in 90 degree heat. Those days we were not allowed on the ship I might ...

Overall a great trip

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Impression

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We chose Avalon this time because they did not require COVID vaccinations. We booked the cruise over the phone. We said we wanted to fly back 9 days after the cruise ended and were told that was not possible and that we would need to book our own flights back. When we called 3 days later and spoke with someone else, we found out that that was just fine but that we needed to pay $90 each for the ...

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Impression

Scarney
First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Avalon River Cruises were easier to deal with on the phone. Their customer service was more responsive than other cruise lines that we contacted. The trip we chose went to different countries we were interested in and we like the longer time length. We liked the choice of excursions. Everyone on the ship was helpful and friendly. There was never a time when we had a question that could not be ...

A Fantastic and Memorable Voyage!!!

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Impression

SailingRenard
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Even though the tour itinerary was most interesting, we chose Avalon because of their professional customer service that actively followed up with our inquiries before we booked our trip. That was just the beginning of Avalon Waterways exceeding our expectations. We were welcomed at the airport with a friendly and conversant transportation crew. It really could not have been easier to come ...
