2019 Avalon River Cruise

Avalon Expression Cruise Review by omawillson

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2019
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Panorama Suite with French Balcony

We took the Avalon Danube River Cruise last year and enjoyed it so much, we decided to take a second Avalon River Cruise. While we enjoyed the Rhine Cruise, we felt the on shore excursions were better on the Danube than the Rhine

It seemed there were less attractions/activities on the Rhine vs Danube, which was disappointing

Service crew were often stingy with wine service and bread and condiments were being collected while we were still eating. We didn't experience this on the Danube Cruise. Also, the Captain was a bit more engaging with the guests on the Danube than the Rhine. Dinner with the Captain was a real hit with everyone.

Tour guides did a great job and Karoline does a fabulous job as cruise director.

I am hopeful this review will facilitate improvement for future cruisers and do plan to book another cruise with Avalon

Cabin Review

Panorama Suite with French Balcony

The cabin was clean and we'll appointed and stocked. We love the full panel window wall with sliding glass door

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

The staterooms are well appointed and stocked. We enjoyed having turndown each night.

Serving staff mostly very friendly and accommodating. However, when the main course was aerved, staff began cleaning up the tables including bread and butter which most folks like to have with meals.

On shore activities are well organized but I liked the ones offered on the Danibe Cruise much better than those offered on the Rhine cruise
