Based on our research, firsthand testimonials and travel agent recommendations, we chose Avalon. So, expectations were high. Well, this trip exceeded anything we could have dreamed of. Our trip was packaged with our travel agent through Avalon/Globus. This included the flights, transfers, accommodation (2 nights pre cruise in Prague) and on board gratuities...

Avalon rep greeted us at the airport and a driver took us to the hotel. Prague Marriott was an excellent choice, location and amenities, five stars! Hotel was able to check us in the morning and we booked (via our travel agent) a private tour of the Jewish Quarter, which was very interesting and powerful. Late afternoon, Avalon scheduled a 'meet & greet' at the hotel. Our cruise Director Ingrid provided an overview of upcoming events, which was very helpful. This session also allowed us to meet the other passengers that chose the 2 days pre. If possible (cost & time), I would strongly recommend including a 'pre cruise' stay, which will help in transition for remainder of trip (especially for first timers like us). On the second day (morning), we joined the Avalon excursion of Prague sightseeing, which was wonderful. The remainder of the day was free time, which gave us an opportunity to explore a bit more and enjoy dinner at a local restaurant.

Day 3, we checked out of the hotel and were bussed to Regensburg Germany. Once again, the transfers were professional and efficient. Spend a nice late morning with the included excursion in town. Then off to on board the ship and embark from Vilshofen Germany. There was a welcome reception, with the introduction of all the crew members.
