My husband and I chose Avalon due to the larger rooms and fewer people. And all the good reviews we heard from the people at Columbus Travel.
We had a wonderful cruise, in spite of the low water problems we had. The ship, or I should say ships as we had to switch ships midway, were very nice with large rooms, a very comfortable bed, the amazing large windows that allowed us to enjoy the outside while being in, and all the little extras that made it so comfortable for us. The room was always kept spotless for us, thanks to the sweet girls who cleaned and turned down our beds. It was also so convenient to have our clothes cleaned by the fast and efficient laundry service.
Ana, our Cruise Director, was such a sweetheart and made our cruise very special. She really had her hands full with all the changes that had to be made due to the low water, but she made sure we all had a wonderful experience. The shore excursions were very informative. Ana made sure even the "Gentle Walkers", like me, were able to enjoy the sights without having to over do it. The 100 degree temperatures made it difficult to totally enjoy sightseeing, but everything was done to make it comfortable for everyone.
Beautiful room. Large. Comfortable bed. Safe in room. Large bathroom with hair dryer and all the essentials.
