  3. Avalon Passion
We are a senior couple and this was our first ever river cruise and we were not disappointed. The ship was beautiful with excellent facilities. Our stateroom was well appointed with a very comfortable king bed and a large bathroom. We were in cabin 216, well placed on the Sapphire deck and in the centre of the ship. The crew were all first class and made our holiday a wonderfully relaxing time. Cruise Director Tony was a wealth of knowledge on just about everything and happily shared his knowledge. The wait staff were very friendly as were the bar staff and It wasn't long before we knew their names without looking at their name badges. The food served was exceptional and a credit to the chef and his assistants. Entertainment was great, we especially enjoyed the beer tasting and the crew putting on their show. Great to see a different side of them. It was also great that we could take advantage of the slow walkers group on the shore excursions, at no time were we made to feel a nuisance. All in all we had a wonderful trip and will certainly travel with Avalon again should the opportunity arise.
