  3. Avalon Panorama
While we cannot fault Avalon for the low water level of the rivers in Europe we were very happy that they bent over backwards to accomodate us. After spending 4 days in Prague we were bused to Passau instead of Nuremberg.They then bused us to Regensberg which would have been our second stop. An additional stop in Linz was added. The day cruise from Melk was beautiful in the hot weather sitting on the deck and admiring the scenery. All the local guides on tours were really knowledgeable. The food was delicious, various appetizers and a choice of 5 main dishes. If none of this was to your liking you could always get a beef tenderloin or chicken breast. Wine and beer was included during meals. The cruise director Gusta was really on the ball and organized extra tours or reimbursed us for optional tours we paid for to compensate for the change in schedule. We even got cash for lunch money for the 2 days we could not eat lunch on the boat. Unfortunately due to low water we could not continue in Vienna and had to be bused to Budapest. We were accomodated in the beautiful Marriott and the dinner and breakfast were excellent. We even got partial reimbusement for the one night we missed on the boat.

Cabin Review

Royal Suite with French Balcony
Cabin RS 310
300 sq. ft. it was well worth the upgrade. We really enjoyed the extra space.
