A European river cruise has been on the bucket list for years and we (7 family members) finally made IT happen! Several of us have taken numerous ocean cruises in the past and enjoyed them so we have something to compare this cruise to. Without a doubt, our Avalon Panorama cruise was special! Everything was so well-organized and the ease of shore excursions (without lengthy queuing) was so appreciated. We were delighted with the "extra" dinner concert at Engers and the nighttime tour of the Rheinstein Castle. Actually, all the excursions were top notch - guides were so knowledgeable and being able to select our tours not only based on interest but physical ability was greatly appreciated. BUT, the most enjoyable excursions were those in the dining room. Our tour guides, Rado, Gabriel, Emil and the delightful Maitre'd, Zjolt, made our evenings as pleasant as the day excursions. We were fortunate to have been able to dine at the same table (except one night) and were treated to an amazingly pleasant and efficient staff! The food was excellent - especially the "German" night! Breakfast and lunch buffets were fantastic - such a variety each day made the meals memorable! We crossed off "A European river cruise" from our bucket lists but added it back on to specify an Avalon Danube cruise next! Oh, yes! We will be back! Read Less

We took Cruce Mundo cruise from our travel agent. We returned on August 4th,2018. The ship MS Bellejour gave us a lot of problems. At the first day of the trip air conditioner didn't work with 95F (35C). Next day cabin was not clean for the entire day, For the last 3 days Ship phone didn't work. Hair drier was missing in the cabin and was delivered at midnight. On the trip to Strasbourg by bus 2 buses had trouble with air conditioners and we had to wait for another bus at 95F outside. Food for dinner was limited and Ship didn't have any entertainment. We strongly recommend to everyone avoid the cruise with MS Bellejour .Old ship and service bellow expectation by far.We had nice offshore excursions with the knowledgeable guides.but everything else was not good at all.Also we expected to see very clean cities. but were very surprised to see garbage all over on the streets Read Less

The ship is smart and clean and is kept clean by a great team of staff. The cabins are well equipped and kept clean and restocked daily. Dining is 1st class with plenty to choose from. Lunch has a selection of starters and sweets on buffet style and your mains are on a menu and cooked fresh. There are wines and beers throughout lunch (as much as you want) supplied by a great team of waiters. Dinner is alacarte with a good selection on the menu every night, again with plenty of wines supplied throughout the meal. The service on board is 1st class and you need for nothing from getting on board to leaving at the end of the cruise. There is light entertainment every night usually a piano player so don’t expect shows every night. The lounge area is very relaxing and you will also find the bar there. Read Less
