My wife and I took a River Cruise on the Danube River from Budapest to Prague. This was our very first cruise and our overall experience was phenomenal.

We boarded the boat, the Avalon Expression, in Budapest. The boat and our Panorama Suite were excellent. The boat is well designed and organised with everything easy to locate and the room spacious (for this type of boat). The bathroom was a good size and modern.

The organised tours and their guides are well worth going. All guides were professional and knowledgeable of the sites we visited. In all, the tours were more than enjoyable, they were educative as well. We visited places such as small towns, castles, cathedrals and a concentration camp. As well, we visited a number of museums that gave us an insight in the countries’ traditions / customs, as well as their histories.

Cabin Review

Panorama Suite with French Balcony

Cabin A

We were in room 214 on the second floor and very well located near the lounge and dinning room. The Cabin, the Panorama Suite, was spacious, well lay-out. It provided all the amenities, i.e., safe, mini fridge, closet, bathrobes, slipper, TV (which was left on the fireplace channel every night. A nice touch!) and all the needed products in the washroom.

There was a wall to wall window / door which opens and provide a great view on the scenery along the Danube.

The bed was comfortable and my wife and I slept very well.

The cleaning staff for the room were excellent. The room was done quickly and kept very clean.
