Great River Cruise - Beautiful Mosel River Valley

Avalon Artistry II Cruise Review by jjmindoro@yahoo.com

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2016
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Outside Stateroom with French Balcony

We choose this cruise because it was only 9 nights, it stayed in Western Europe (Paris to Amsterdam), and it is a smaller ship. Our tour guide, Hendrik Dadema, was great, He paid special attention to each individual and their wants and needs. He arranged separate site seeing tours for slower guests. The ship staff was great. The food was exceptional. We were glad that portions were small so we could enjoy many different items each meal. The Mosel River and surrounding hills and villages are beautiful. The wine is from this area very good also. We were sorry that we were not able to take the Panoramic Moselle Drive because there was a wine festival in Bernkastel and they close the roads and the river for the weekend. We signed up for Amsterdam at Night which was an interesting tour. Entertainment by the crew the last night was fantastic.

Before the river cruise, we spent 6 days in Amsterdam. After the river cruise, we spent 3 days in Bruge, Belgium (did the De Halve Maan Brewery tour - this was great). Look forward to seeing more of Europe in the future.
