We always wanted to try a river cruise in Europe. This was our first river cruise after experiencing numerous ocean cruises. This trip exceeded all of our exceptions, from the food, to service and itinerary. The room was extremely well laid out. The bed was so comfortable. The ship was great as well as the staff. Dining was always an experience and the wait staff was very generous with the wine/beer etc. The ports of call were beautiful and the tour guides very knowledgeable and informative on the excursions. The scenery and ports of call were so beautiful. The whole trip was very magical, and almost fairy tale with the cites being so picturesque. The entertainment was about the only thing which was a little weak. Not that it wasn't good, but just not very much. Do not book this cruise if you are going for the entertainment. However, with not much to do after a full day of sight seeing, it was nice just to go back to your room after dinner and relax. Still, we were 100% satisfied with this cruise. Read Less

Our fourth trip with Avalon River Cruises. We love this part of Europe. We chose this cruise because we have not been on the Moselle river. Wonderful included excursions. The cruise director's explanation of the castles on the rivers was wonderful, very informative. We only stay in a cabin with the French balcony, watching the landscape while falling asleep is the only way to go. The staff go out of their way to be friendly, helpful and provide you with a wonderful experience. The food is exceptional. The choices at breakfast and lunch are wonderful and dinner choices are amazing. The soups are better than you can find anywhere in the USA. The included extras are amazing, lunch at the oldest sausage kitchen in Germany, Rudesheim coffee and more. We stayed extra days in Budapest, but didn't have transportation to the airport, the Cruise Director found transportation for seven along with all our luggage for a extremely reasonable price. There really aren't enough words to say how happy we have been traveling with Avalon. Read Less

This was our third Avalon cruise. We had done the Rhine and the Seine cruises and loved them, so of course we stayed with Avalon. If you haven't done the Rhine, this tour does go by the Rhine castles and Lorelei Rock. I think that is really the high point of the Rhine cruise. (Plus, the Rhine is more industrial, which this tour is defiantly more scenic) On this cruise, the ship sails on the Danube canal, Main River, Rhine canal and Mossel River. There is very little industry, so the scenery is just beautiful, especially the mountains on the Mossel with the vineyards. We did the tour extension and started in Prague. Since our plane was late, we only had one full day in Prague, and that really isn't enough in this awesome city. We did the Avalon tour as well as Hidden Treasures and the Folklore dinner. We enjoyed all of them. Avalon's hotel, Hilton, did not meet our expectations due to very noisy (think jackhammer) construction that takes place from 10 to 7 pm. Although it was a superior hotel with beautiful rooms, not being able to hold a conversation in our room due to noise was not acceptable. However, this was a wonderful cruise. It helped that we had a fantastic Austrian cruise direction, Helmut, who kept things moving with Swiss precision. Not only were his evening cruise briefings concise and funny, but he was always there to make sure that our local guides had us where we were supposed to be He did a superior job of organizing our transfers off the ship. The crew of the ship were excellent. Of course our cabins were spotless, as was the ship and dining areas. The meals were delicious. Breakfast was buffet, with any food you could imagine, including an omelet station, which was particularly popular. Lunch also offered a great selection. Dinner was 4-5 courses, and you have a choice for each course. They serve wine and beer with lunch and dinner, complimentary. The ship also served tea at 4:00 with baked goods and sandwiches. We found all the food fantastic! Our lounge singer was ok, but the entertainers they brought onboard were excellent. The Imagery II is a great ship. Avalon has made the rooms bigger than they were formerly; there is more room in the shower now and a little table by the french balcony. They have scented oil diffusers in the bathroom, but took them out at my request due to my allergies. The rooms on the mid deck all have the sliding glass door that runs the length of your room. This is wonderful when you are up early and sailing into a port. You can sit in bed and watch the world go by. The lower levels do not have these windows, and our friends on the lower deck would see swan asses sail by. However, our friend on the lower decks felt like they were rarely in their rooms, which is generally true. We did all of the included and extra tours that Avalon offered. We enjoyed all the included tours. We would have skipped the "VINEYARDS, VILLAGES & VIEWS OF THE MOSELLE" because we went to a former nunnery that didn't exist, and it was meaningless. However the first half of the tour was interesting in that we saw how sparkling wine was made. Our tour guide knew a lot of information about growing wine grapes, and that was interesting. Ports were exceptionally beautiful with medieval half timbered houses. Wurzberg is a stand out for the bishop's residence and Trier for its Roman ruins. We would have liked to spend more time in those towns. Bamberg is a breathtaking beautiful town. I like that Avalon now offers activities to suit different fitness levels. We did the average group, which was usually around 2-4 miles of walking. There was a gentle walking group for those who didn't want to walk that much. There is a fast paced group that goes on hikes to castles and bike rides. People seemed to enjoy having neat options. I am very glad that we did this cruise. It was relaxing and enjoyable. Read Less
