We looked at Viking and Avalon. The reviews for Avalon were great and our travel agent gave it a great review.
We had a wonderful time. Everything went great. We did have disembark at some ports through other ships but it went smoothly.
The food was delish the menus had great selections every evening, and the breakfast and lunch buffets were always full of great selections. We did love the staff the waiters and waitresses and bartenders all were excellent. You couldn't have asked for better service, by the end of our trip we knew we would miss there happy smiles and wonderful attentive service.
The cabins were beautiful and always made up and straightened up throughout the day.
The Panoramic views from our rooms were spectacular.
And not to forget the wonderful excursions. Everyday was filled with interesting venues. All our guides were fantastic. They were locals usually and had personal knowledge of the area. The young woman that coordinated all the excursions was wonderfully helpful with everything. And the welcome desk personnel we also a great help. We had so much fun! It was truly an amazing vacation!
Beautiful and very comfortable . The room was always kept up during the day. The Television left a lot to be desired though. The burning log on nine channels was a bit much. And nothing in English. But that is our only complaint about the whole trip and we really didn't have much time to watch it anyway
