Avalon Impression Cruise Review by gsonier

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2015
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Stateroom with Window

It was our first river cruise and we really enjoy the experience so much that we want to go back soon.

First, it was not a easy embarkation due to the low level of the Danube at this time of the year. It was a exceptional situation that the staff took care of everyone on board during the cruise time. We had to embark at Passau instead of Nuremberg ...but they did make sure that we didn't miss anything from day one.

Big thanks and appreciation for our cruise director, Janos, who took care of us from Prague to Nuremberg to Passau. He was very accommodating to everyone on board. He had to make good decision and he did as well.

We did enjoy the excursions and appreciate the suggestions that was offered to us. We did learn a lot on everything we saw. Our nice surprise was the excursion to Cesky Krumlov that we didn't have a clue it was so special and beautiful.

On board, we did enjoy the grill lunch on the top patio and the bistro dinner in the lounge. It was a new experience and we did enjoy very much. The choice of meals and wine are excellent.

We appreciate that there was no assigned seating at the restaurant so we can meet different interesting people from different places.

The service at the reception, bar, restaurant is exceptional because there are less people on a river cruise ship. They took the time to know where you're from and what is your needs. The staff had a great sense of humour and having fun working around us.

Thanks for a good experience on the Impression!

We will be back for more cruises like this one.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom with Window
Cabin D 115

We took the last cabin at last minute. We had a nice deal and it was worth it. We didn't have a french balcony but there were a lot of traffic on the Danube and often we had to docked with other cruise ship so the view was not excellent anyway. We were impressed by the luxury and cleanliness of our room. We did enjoy more the outside and the all the facilities of the ship.
