River Cruise from Linz to Budapest

This is my first river cruise so I don’t have a comparison with any other cruise line. I started with an optional 3 days in Prague where I had an excellent guide. In fact, on all the excursions I went on the local guides they use were excellent. I met the ship in Linz and embarkation went without a hitch. My cabin was comfortable and very clean. I was traveling by myself so can’t answer ...

Too routine - mediocre food - cheap wine

Avalon never misses an acceptable value. Service is impeccable. Rooms are shining with cleanliness. Linens are superb. Unfortunately, this is not enough when you consider the price one pays per day. Cruise plan was uninspired (as an understatement). The stateroom was no less than claustrophobic. Taking a shower required acrobatic qualifications. Smoking areas were on the same end of ...

We chose this cruise because it was a great way to see eastern European destinations that we wanted to see. Prague, Vienna, and Budapest. We enjoyed the range of excursions from active to more sedentary.The river cruise offered the opportunity to unpack once and be in one room for 7 days as opposed to a different hotel every night. Finally, we felt well cared for by cruise staff who gave us ...

This was our first, but not out last, river cruise. My husband and I loved everything about cruising with Avalon. It's interesting to hear people talk about other lines. We would choose Avalon again without hesitating. The service was GREAT. We might go for an upper cabin next time. It's true that you don't spend so much time in your room, but I did not realize that the room would be below ...

We chose this cruise initially because we wanted to have at least two days in Vienna. And, because we could not book our cruise until late summer, this was our best option. But what serendipity! It was a wonderful experience on the beautiful Avalon Impression. Our vivacious cruise director Maria was very informative and took excellent care of everyone. We appreciated the multiple included ...

We were comparing Viking and Avalon as we knew nothing about either. We chose Avalon as it was the right timing and we received free air fare. Lol. We really didn't know much about destinations or places we wanted to see but thought we would start with the Danube and see what that was like. We quickly found that the destination was only part of the trip. We enjoyed every minute of the time we ...

This was our first time to Europe. It was truly amazing. I never had an idea on how old some of the sites were and the history of the area. Prague was our first stop and was an amazing city. We went on the walking tour and learned so much from the history of Prague. We boarded the ship in Nuremberg and was greeted by a very friendly crew and easy cabin assignment. What was so nice was the ...

We chose this trip based on recommendation of a friend who planned to go but didn’t book in time. It was absolutely great. Exceeded every expectation. The ship was wonderful, our cruise director, Mauro, fantastic and the staff especially Bianco could not be more accommodating. Super! The AvalonGO app is the best yet. It was so good to be able to take pictures and make notes at the time ...

We sailed on the Impression, but our Journey started several days earlier with an extension in Salzburg. Tamas was our guide on the ship, and was also our guide in Salzburg. I cannot say enough about how incredible he was. Everything was taken care of for us, and he was always available to answer questions. Our cabin was wonderful for the most part....the last night on board a shorter boat ...

I am so happy that my Travel Agent selected the Avalon Waterways. This was my first trip to Europe and I can honestly say I was treated like Royalty. Not only were the accommodations excellent, also were the staff. Never have I seen staff so committed to their job. The atmosphere was like family and we had so much fun with everyone from the Captain Ronald to Director Tony. There was never a ...
