  3. Avalon Tranquility II
We chose Avalon for reputation and destinations We liked the fact that we had the option of going on our own at different stops A few standouts were Pesca fis retaurant in Amsterdam and papa Joe’s jazz club. Plan on hopefully another Avalon cruise in the future. Crew and food were exceptional, A few of the excursions were a disappointment - the mechanical music museum and the woman in the museum were terrible. She was mechanical and unappealing. The building actually smelled like musty mold. The wine trip in Alsace was a great disappointment. They only had a few wines to taste (which weren’t very good) and even if we had liked them they didn’t ship. And this was an additional excursion that we paid for. These incidents are reported for your future planning but fortunately and did not affect overall experience of your cruise The coach drivers were all terrific. PS loved the canal boat trips and loved Colmar. But as beautiful as it is was too crowded and might be less so first thing in the mornin.

Amazing first experience on a cruise. No better way to see old world cities

A few of the excursions were a disappointment - the mechanical music museum and the woman in the museum were terrible. She was mechanical and unappealing. The building actually smelled like musty mold. The wine trip in Alsace was a great disappointment.
