A fantastic cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam. Avalon Expression was a magnificent, modern and spacious ship. Our cabin on the Royal Deck was cleverly designed and spacious. The queen sized bed was so comfortable and faced the river which was a bonus. A smart double opening floor to ceiling glass door provided an indoor outdoor experience without losing precious floor space that many other river ships do lose with their dedicated balconies. A flat bottomed ship together with masterful captaincy provided by Alex Strien and his crew, ensured that we could navigate through a very low Danube which most other ships could not achieve. The servicing of our cabins was spotless and faultless. Food was delicious and plentiful. Lounges areas were great for relaxation and tours were informative and well planned. Evening entertaining was also very good. I would highly recommend Avalon for anyone wanting a cruising experience.
Cabin could not have been better in terms of size, cleanliness, comtemporary design, brightness and quietness. Bathroom had plenty of cupboard space and shower was a good size and needed to be because my husband is 6'4" tall.
Fascinating and interesting city.
Gorgeous medieval town.
