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 fact that it was a small ship. Getting on and off was super easy. Meals were delicious and there was always something on the menu I wanted to eat. The evening meals were always an ...

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 provided information at every stage to enable a full understanding of the cruise options and activities. The cabin was very clean and quite spacious, apart from the bathroom, which was ...

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 helpful, happy and professional in their cruise experience delivery. A lovely surprise upgrade, offered a cabin with a lovely view of the passing castles, villages and countryside. The ...

Low rainfall in Germany and low water in the Rhine river means Avalon busses you close to four hours a day for the cruise days scheduled for Strasbourg to Rudesheim and Rudesheim to Koblenz. Non stop 3 hour rides have ruined an otherwise pleasant and interesting trip. The low water issue is ongoing. Be informed. The information packet in your confirmation of your reservation mentions ...

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. Most important for me, a vegetarian, was the fact a vegetarian offering was standard on the dinner menu every evening. While the shore excursions were very enjoyable and educational, ...

We wanted to try a river cruise and pick this one because we had not seen any of the places we were visiting. We were touring Switzerland via Globus bus tours and ended up in Basel and started our tour from there. Switzerland was gorgeous and the river cruise was exceptional. We were looking forward to unpacking and staying unpacked but due to the river being low we had to leave the ship and go by ...

Recommended by a travel agent. Never do a river cruise in the past and want to experience the river cruise, especially Rhine River since it is very famous. We did have time to tour Amerstedram since we were able to dropn off our luggages earlier on the ship. The included excuriosns are great since most of them are city tours with experienced/knowledgale guides to tell the history and explaint ...

My husband chose this cruise line based on the active excursions offered and reviews offered about the cruise line. This was our first River Cruise and so we really didn't know what to expect. We arrived several days early, stayed with family and adjusted to the time change before ever boarding the ship. If possible, I highly recommend arriving early so on your very first day, you're ready to ...

First European river cruise and I'd do Avalon again. Loved the Rhine and the castles we saw along the way. Food and service were top notch. I felt bad for the people who just got off a flight and had to nap in the lounge since the cabins weren't available till 4PM. They ran a full size bus for just 6 passengers to get us from FRA to the boat. That was unexpected but appreciated. Hendrik, ...

We had been on large cruise ships before and wanted to try a smaller, river cruise. This cruise did not disappoint. The staff was wonderful and very knowledgeable. The ship was just the right size so you didn't get lost trying to find things. They "no specific seating" at meals was great for getting to meet a lot of people. The food was delicious and dining room staff top-notch! There ...
