This cruise satisfied all our desires, offered the right amenities and still allowed us some flexibility. Our flight out was delayed by a hurricane and we were told we'd be on our own to the pre-trip hotel. To our surprise and delight we were met at the airport by a representative and shuttled to hotel. Great beginning. The selected hotel was impeccable, service was great and a true pleasure. Our host Tony, was friendly and helpful with any requests. Our transfer to ship was easy and effortless. Fabulous. Ship, cabin, dining, service and staff. We had an excellent cabin attendant, Merlin. She kept room perfect, catered to my ice obsession and did so totally out of sight. Again, fabulous. Ports and excursions were well chosen and executed. A variety of locations and opportunities kept things interesting without overwhelming or exhausting us. Superb experience. Will recommend and choose Avalon in the future. Read Less

We had taken a Danube Avalon cruise in July of 2016 with Avalon. Enjoyed it so much we decided to do the Rhine in 2017. In 2016 the ship only had approximately 80 passengers on board with crew. This summer the ship was completely full. Just with difference of 35-40 people you could tell the difference in the service level at dinnertime, Both cruises had wonderful, attentive and informative cruise directors. Each director had very different personalities, but catered to our every whim! Very knowledgeable with very good sense of humor! The crew did a wonderful job as well. Each one was very friendly and accomodating. The food was very good, as well as the bar service. We paid for optional tours on each cruise and they only added to our wonderful experience. The local guides do a wonderful job and take good care to watch over everyone. The earpieces are such a good idea! I did like the new addition this summer of having a "slow walking tour" option for those that needed it. I think that was very helpful for alot of passengers. Read Less

We took this first river cruise on Viking because of a recommendation from friends. This was our first river cruise and it was everything we wanted and more. Viking goes out of its way to make sure you enjoy everything about your cruise. Every detail is presented in the best way possible. We had a 2 day pre trip to Lucerne and had Viking make the arrangements. We were met at the airport by a Viking guide and taken to our hotel. There were guided side trips in order for us to get the most out of our experience. We took a boat trip on Lake Lucerne and finished it with a tram ride to the top of a local mountain for lunch. The following day we went on a guided walking tour of the city of Lucerne. The river cruise was wonderful and included side tours at every stop. The tours were interesting and helped us to understand the history and culture of all the places we visited. We met new friends on the trip and have already gotten together with them for dinner when we returned home. We have traveled extensively throughout the U.S. but have only been to Europe 3 times. This cruise packed a lot of wonderful destinations into 10 days and was the best trip we have ever been on because of the accommodations aboard and the attention to detail of everyone aboard the ship.
