Sail Date: Jul 2018
Cabin: Outside Stateroom with French Balcony

We were invited to join this cruise with our friends who were celebrating their wedding anniversary. We had wanted to do a river cruise so this was a good opportunity. There was tasty food and enough opportunities to eat. The cities at the beginning and end were easily accessed . There could have been a more welcoming waiting environment at the hotel where we caught the bus to take us to the ship.

The guides were top notch and made both the included and the extra tours well worth the time to participate. The additional Vienna tour that included a concert was fabulous.

Even though we had some low water along the way, the cruise director took care to provide the best options for the cruise to continue. The resident ship musician was well worth sitting and listening to for awhile each day. The bicycles that were available were in really good condition and there were good opportunities to use them.

Cabin Review

Outside Stateroom with French Balcony

Avalon provided a relatively good sized cabin with the Panorama Doors/Windows that made just watching the world go by quite enjoyable!

Port Reviews

Frankfurt

Visited Seligenstadt - what a great town and basilica

Zurich

In Zurich on our own - many opportunities to tour and a great train and hike up one of the large mountains.

Nuremberg

The town was more fun than the tour

Wurzburg

guided tour to Bishops Residenz really great but hurried. Could have taken a bit more time.

Heidelberg

The castle tour and the bus ride to and from castle really enjoyable

Regensburg

Historic Wurstkuche was fun and the walking tour included great stories
