Had the most wonderful vacation aboard the Avalon Luminary. Fantastic ports-of-call. Beautiful boat. We were an the active cruise, and enjoyed the hiking and biking tours. There were only 120 passengers on board so we got to know most of the passengers and really enjoyed their comany Our cabin was very nicely appointed on the second floor with a French Balcony almost at the level of the river. Land accommodations were excellent. One highlight was taking a cooking class in Vienna, where we made Wiener Schnitzel, German Potato Salad and Apple Strudel. Another highlight was exploring the caves on the Buda side of Budapest. Dining was very good. Some meals were better than others, but overall it was of a superior quality. Staff was very polite and professional. Our Cruise Director Sabina was superb. Cant wait to go on our next river cruise with Avalon. Next hopefully in the South of France
