We chose this cruise for the price and itinerary. We had a great time even though the water level was low. Avalon did a super job of keeping the trip as close to the original itinerary as possible. I enjoyed the ...

The whole experience was excellent. We attended the ship early and were permitted to leave our luggage which was well prior to the actual embarkation time. The tour director was thorough and approachable. He ...

Rhine Southbound

As we were travelling at the very end of peak season, we decided it best to travel north to south, so this cruise was the perfect choice. From the warm welcome on board to the farewell, the Avalon crew were ...

Very good vegetarian food. Excellent personal service.

The size of the ship, a smaller ship, and the crew to passenger ratio was a big factor in selecting Avalon. We also were impressed with the size of the staterooms, much larger than other cruise lines we looked at. ...

Loved the ship and seeing the castles along our river journey

Avalon offered an "adventure" cruise, and we thought that would attract a more active, younger demographic (which it did). We very much enjoyed the INCLUDED tours that were provided, but the EXTRA/PAID excursions ...
