Avalon Passion Cruise Review by Virgonz

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

Had always wanted to see Christmas Markets and seeing them via a cruise sounded idyllic - it was.

From the time we boarded to disembarking we were looked after superbly. The Cruise Director (Valentin) was very efficient with a great sense of humor which made everything run very smoothly. All the staff were very friendly and determined to make our trip as enjoyable as possible.

The excursions were well planned and the guides spoke excellent English and were most informative. We were fortunate to go on the Wilhering Abbey excursion which was most interesting. The girls who conducted the tour have the makings of great tour guides. The Abbey was spectacular - one of the best we have seen.

The markets were interesting, the best being the one in Vienna. The most memorable event was when the guide sang 'Silent Night' in German in Passau when it was snowing.

Would we do another Avalon Cruise? In a heartbeat!

Would we recommend Avalon Cruises? Without hesitation!

Cabin Review

Panorama Suite with French Balcony

The cabin was very comfortable. Staff kept it clean and tidy. We had excellent viewing from the windows.

We did get engine vibrations being near the stern.
