Incredible service married with outstanding design
"The captain and crew did an excellent job managing the challenges presented by the extraordinary summer heat we had to deal with -- we sailed early and were the last ship able to get out of Budapest that day because river levels were low.And when the final destination had to be changed from Deggensdorf to Passau due to low water levels, the crew worked tirelessly to make sure that every passenger's travel arrangements were accommodated...."Read More

Phenomenal

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We had never cruised before - river or ocean - so didn't know what to expect. We will probably never do another one, because nothing can live up to the phenomenal time we had on or Jewish Heritage cruise. Where to begin? We had a royal suite - so worth the extra money for a king size bed, double sinks, a larger shower, a separate toilet room with sink, 2 televisions, a table and chairs and 12 ...

I had a fabulous time on Avalon's Jewish Heritage cruise on the Danube River. Despite the low water levels, we were able to keep our itinerary intact and made all the planned stops. Avalon does a Jewish heritage cruise once a year. Most stops focused on the history of Jews in the area, and the guides showed us former and current synagogues, monuments, and Solpersteine or stumbling stones, which ...

We had originally scheduled a Christmas Markets cruise with Avalon, but had to cancel due to the Omicron COVID wave. Avalon handled our credit process very well, and we rescheduled for a Budapest-Deggensdorf Danube cruise in July. The Envision is a beautiful ship, and the room design, with cabin-wide sliding doors and beds facing the window, was ideal. Unfortunately, the July heat meant we had ...

We always wanted to be on a river cruise and we finally did! After lots of research we decided on Avalon. It was a wise choice! Fantastic people, from the Cruise Director Maria Pascual to all the crew. I'm a Personal Chef and I can tell you the cuisine and the service was first class (fantastic breakfasts). I talked to your executive Chef every day and I even got to meet the Corporate Chef while ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This was my first ever cruise of any kind. It far exceeded my expectations. The ship was beautiful and comfortable. The cabin was tastefully decorated. The French balcony with the floor to ceiling sliding glass doors made the room feel more spacious and made for excellent scenery viewing. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was bigger than I expected. The crew and staff were friendly and ...

We’ve always wanted to take a European River Cruise. On this two week cruise, we visited the countries of Hungary, Slovakia, Austria, Germany, and the Netherlands. Our interests are history, architecture, gardens, food, music, and art. This cruise was perfect for us. We explored beautiful cathedrals, abbeys, castles, small villages, large cities, etc... On the many excursions we we took, our ...

The service staff were the best part of the cruise. The food and wine etc were very good. However, I found the sheer numbers of people -148 or thereabouts - quite overwhelming. The ship didn't get past Passau and we were berthed there for 3 days with our 'view' being a stone wall. That's not what I paid for. Why was there no contingency plan? Our river cruise turned into hours of being herded ...

Every step of the way on this Danube River Cruise with Avalon was beyond expectations. They managed everything effortlessly (which we all know isn't easy but they brought perfection to managing everything). From meeting us at the airport, transporting us to the hotel, to the ship and at the end, the same process in reverse was flawless. The ship was beautiful, functional and spotless. Cabin ...

I had cruised with Avalon down the Rhine River 10 years ago, and was very pleased, so I thought I'd stay with the same company down the Danube. I was so lucky to get a double room cabin all to myself, as did my 2 other girlfriends that I was traveling with. The first 5 singles that booked the cruise, did not have to pay the single supplement. Wow, that was a tremendous savings! The cruise was on ...
