Christmas Market experience

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Panorama

Ivana McGrail
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

I went on this cruise as part of a travel group of 20. There were some hiccups at the outset due to high water levels on the Rhine. Avalon did an amazing job to make sure their guests were well cared for and accommodated and still provided all the tours. The local guides provided were top notch and the food provided by Avalon delicious and plentiful. The staff worked incredibly hard and ...

Great Time with a Hardworking Crew

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Panorama

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

This was a Specialty Cruise- Festive Christmas Markets, which are a very important part of the European holiday tradition. This was our first time on Avalon and experiencing the markets. We arrived an extra day early in Amsterdam to be able to see the Van Gogh and Anne Frank Museums. This and the Zans Schans excursion and the 9 streets area, as well as the Winter Festival of Lights Cruise, were so ...

Rhine Cruise - Amsterdam to Basel

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Panorama

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We had never been on a cruise of any kind before. My husband wasn’t fond of going on a sea cruise so we opted last minute for this river cruise with Avalon, one of the best decisions we’ve made in many years as it turned out! We were impressed with the customer focussed organisation and service provided by Avalon and its members of staff. To achieve such seamlessness indicates that this ...

Fantastic experience cruising with Avalon

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This was our first River Cruise, we could not have picked a better company to travel with. Prior to departure the travel information we received was second to none, on arrival our connections were informative and on arriving at the ship we were welcomed on board by all staff that passed us and introduced to other guests already onboard. Our room was perfect very comfortable and clean ( and ...

Superlative first time river cruise experience with Avalon

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Panorama

Balooney
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We chose Avalon having got a good last minute deal and having heard from former river cruisers about infirm and very elderly clients on river cruises. Avalon has an ‘Active’ excursion leader and as such appeals to a slightly younger crowd. You do not have to be active to enjoy the cruise, it’s all at your own pace but the active excursions gave this cruise an edge in our opinion. We cruised ...

Simply fabulous

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Panorama

E.Ka
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I chose the cruise, because my friend is not able to do big walking tours as we used to and always wanted to see more of the River Rhine….So I decided that is our best way to go…..I was sceptical, could not imagine touring on a ship. At the end we were both exited. We could not have made a better decision: everything was wonderful: the staff, so caring, smiling all the time, hard working young ...

There are no better views from your cabin than with Avalon Waterways. I’ve sailed with Avalon before and love the 200’ cabin, with 11 foot glass wall that opens up to 7’ of water, sun, fresh air & spectacular views which can be seen from my river-facing bed!! Awesome!!! New awesome concepts are: 1. the fabulous coffee machine in the lounge area 2. station to refill water bottles 3. ...

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Panorama

Seniorchief8
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

Cabin are large and spaceious and setup properly for viewing the sights as you cruise the Rhine. Balconies on the others sacrifice indoors space for a narrow outside sitting space. Not worth it. Special excursions are given that are not given on other river cruises. Small and quaint. You will definitely make friends from around the world more easily. Whether it be at breakfast, lunch, dinner or ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

We loved the service, value, organization, energy, food, excursions and our room. There is not one thing I can say that is negative. The entire Avalonian's model is superb in every way! We are already looking to book our next trip! Unlike other boats this one is superior with certain things that you don't realize until you are on the cruise for the first time. Covered decks on top for days you ...

Fantastic vacation!

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Panorama

Thanks mom and dad
10+ Cruises • Age 50s

Our first river cruise after many big sea cruises, and it was fantastic! Avalon did everything top notch. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and went out of their way to make sure that everything was great. Floating down the river was so relaxing and the scenery was beautiful. Our cabin was on the top floor and the view from it was great, especially from the bed facing the window ...
