Avalon did not disapoint
Embarkation: Monaco (Monte Carlo)
The staff were very pleasant, helpful and funny....we had an awesome crew serving us at dinner. A huge thanks to a few chosen, "Oleg, Dimi and Daniel". The dining room More was very noisy but you soon adjusted as everyone was simply having a great time. Food was exceptional and the free wine just kept coming- thanks to Dimi. On CANADA DAY we were surprised to arrive in the dining room to find red & white balloons, honoring our countries flag. They celebrated Canada's Birthday with a cake as they did again for our American friends on July 4th...such a nice touch :)
There was plenty of space indoor and outdoor to enjoy as you wished. With only 126 passengers, it was a refreshing change from the large cruise ships. We never felt crowded- always found great spots to curl up in and watch the scenery pass or read a book. It was peaceful-no barside reggae music, no loud poolside games, no constant announcements.
One final note. We had been told that the average age onboard river cruises would be in the 70-80's range. It varied and there was a good range of ages on our specific cruise. Everyone got along very well, everyone kept up the pace, and everyone enjoyed the others company regardless of age. We were there to have a good time - and we had a great time!
