  • Sail Date: Jul 2018
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Outside Stateroom with Window

The region is of great interest to me. The culinary and wine experience was an important reason for my selecting this cruise. I have been on the Danube cruise and am aware of the excellent service provided by Avalon.

The food was well planned and executed with a lot of choices. The fruits and veggies were fresh. The main courses were inspired by local cuisine. The desserts were also delicious .

The wine selections were very well done concentrating on local wines. The Rhone region is well known for their wines . A nice feature of the cruise was that we had an on board sommelier for a few days. He gave us an excellent review of wines from the region and provided very useful general information on various wines.

The wine tours were great as well especially the Beaujolais tour.

The cruise director did an outstanding job considering the fact that she had to coordinate several activities and schedules for various people.

Lastly the tours of the small towns as well as Lyon was very well done
