  3. Avalon Tranquility II
Love European river cruising and had traveled with Grand Circle previously on the Danube, Everything was great -- the food, the rooms, the service and passengers. Valentin (Tranquility II, cruise director) was awesome!! He has a way to make everyone feel welcome and special and a great sense of humor. Georgi and Alexandria (Tranquility II, bar service) were also awesome. Always service with a smile, friendly and extremely helpful. Wonderful people. The excursions - both the included and optional excursions were exceptional and the guides were knowledgeable and interesting. Best cruise ever!! Poetry II Great themed cruise -- loved the wine tasting excursions. Each winery/area was unique and I learned soooo much about wine. Petru (Poetry II, dining service) was GREAT!! He makes everyone's day! Would have liked more time at the Pont du Gard excursion -- seemed rushed. Also would have liked more time to discover St. Paul de Vence. Very interesting but dark by the time we arrived. Again, great cruise. Would recommend this to anyone. We look forward to another cruise with Avalon.

Poetry II

Great themed cruise -- loved the wine tasting excursions. Each winery/area was unique and I learned soooo much about wine. Petru (Poetry II, dining service) was GREAT!!

He makes everyone's day! Would have liked more time at the Pont du Gard excursion -- seemed rushed. Also would have liked more time to discover St. Paul de Vence. Very interesting but dark by the time we arrived.

Again, great cruise.

Would recommend this to anyone. We look forward to another cruise with Avalon.
