We chose this cruise,, quite late,.. Having been aboard BlackWatch in June,when it caught fire and we were flown home. We found everything about the Avalon Vista exceeded our expectations , having done a fair amount of cruising We feel able to judge! The Captain, crew and everyone aboard were friendly and helpful. The ship was kept immaculate and the food Very good. We enjoyed being able to open our french balcony window and watch the magnificent scenery pass by. The tours laid on along the way were informative and easy to follow with our hand held mikes and ear pieces. All the entertainment was well chosen and appreciated by the guests. It is hard to fault it with good wines every evening being included., maybe they were being subsidised by the rather expensive drinks ordered during the day??! That being our only slight complaint! Would recommend the cruise to anyone,especially when the sun shone everyday.

Two contented cruisers!

Cabin Review

Panorama Suite with French Balcony
Cabin B 317
Smaller than we had imagined it to be from the brochure, but well thought through with sufficient space for clothes etc. The bed was so comfortable I had to ask the name of the mattress.!
