Avalon Tranquility II Cruise Review by gstapltn
- Sail Date: September 2018
- Destination: Europe River
- Cabin Type: Outside Stateroom with French Balcony
The meals were outstanding. We enjoyed the bountiful buffets for breakfast and lunch. Every night dinner was an occasion with wonderful choices for each course. The service was great. We enjoyed meeting and visiting with other passengers. It was nice to have the freedom to sit where and with whom we wanted.
We enjoyed the tours at the various ports. The guides were all entertaining and knowledgeable. It was nice to be so close to the city centers in many of the ports. We appreciated the bikes being available for a short bike ride along the Rhine which has many bike paths along the shore. The daily "port talks" with the Tour Director, Nico, were a highlight of the afternoon and a great lead-in to dinner. His guided tour of the Rhine River Gorge and description of all the castles was enhanced by the lovely weather we had that day.
It was sad to leave our beautiful floating home when we disembarked in Amsterdam. We were very pleased with our Avalon cruise and look forward to taking another some day.

Zaanse Schans WindmillsThis site was both an interesting historical site with windmills and a Disney-like set of houses with shops. The climb up the stairs/ladder in the largest windmill was treacherous, but the view was worth it. Ride to and from was interesting, as we got a chance to see the suburbs of Amsterdam.View All 50 Zaanse Schans Windmills Reviews
