Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Expression

Arizona Budgies
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Two seniors from Phoenix in response to a bucket list item - never taken a river cruise before. Arrived 1 night prior to boarding after a frustrating flight experience. On boarding day Tu 10-24 arrived at the dock, met by an Avalon person on the sidewalk to help with luggage, checked it in and left for the Rijksmuseum to await cabin entry at 4pm. Ship parked at Amsterdam Tuesday night. Wed. ...

A Good Trip But Not Up To The Expectations Set

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on AmaVida

vbran1960
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

This was our first AMAWaterways cruise. We typically ocean cruise with Seabourn and when we decided to try a river cruise we asked our travel agent, Which river cruise company is closest to Seabourn? Without any hesitation she said AMAWaterways. We choose the Flavors of Portugal & Spain because we had never been to Portugal and the website touted great food and wine while sailing the Douro. Based ...

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on AmaDouro

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

I needed a specific date so chose AMA after previously enjoying three river cruises with Tauck which is tops and a good recommendation from my travel agent. I did not expect things to be as nice as Tauck and I was pleasantly surprised. The ship (built in 2019) was lovely, the staff was outstanding, the itinerary wonderful, the food delicious and the scenery more beautiful than I had imagined. I ...

Beautiful river

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on AmaDouro

Pendlewitch
6-10 Cruises • Age 80s

We chose this cruise after recommendation and I have say we were not disappointed with the Douro Valley. It was breathtaking., However, although the cruising experience was wonderful, the trips involved lots of coach travel and my partner does not travel well in a coach. Also most trips involved wine tasting which, after a while, become a little repetitive. Unfortunately, if one chose not to ...

Very disappointing as we were told to expect a 5-star experience

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on AmaDouro

Chiro0814
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this cruise as it was our first time on AMA Waterways and were told it was 5-star all the way, Several people told us it was better than Uniworld (our only other river cruise experience). Halfway through the cruise former AMA customers told us NOT to judge this cruise as it is the smallest of the AMA ships; so much for their initial 5-star assessment. We booked a A-stateroom (just ...

A Wonderful Cruise Experience

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on AmaVida

Old-Sailor-Dude
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This cruise was recommended by our Travel Advisor. The entire experience was wonderful. I'm glad we did a short river cruise (220 Km). We were in port every night which allowed us to sightsee, dine off the ship if we wanted. Every day was an event by bus to see the many different sights each city or town presented. We saw a varied things on our day trips for Cathedrals, Castles, Wineries. ...

Delightful experience

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Poetry II

Sovay60
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

Friends were already booked on it, and so we elected to join them! I had always fancied a river cruise, as opposed to an ocean cruise, and particularly wanted to do this Saone- Rhône one. I thought it was very good value for money, as there were several excursions included, and also drinks with meals. I throughly enjoyed it, as I adore France, so I was in heaven, visiting so many beautiful ...

Nothing special - just another week on a cruise ship

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Poetry II

Rivercruiselover1963
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

There were high expectations for this cruise. We do not get to take very many vacations together as a married couple, especially as we are working and our schedules do not align very often. So, much emphasis was placed on maximizing our time. We had take the Avalon cruise of the Rhine River in 2018, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was an "active cruise" and also introductory - which meant that ...

2 nights in Paris, Chaoln-sur-Saone to Arles (8 day), 2 days in Nice

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Poetry II

JeanDarri
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We had done Amsterdam to Basel in 2018, and Paris-Normandy-Paris in 2019. This was our third cruise, and in our opinion, the best so far. Poetry II was immaculate and the crew and staff were friendly, competent, courteous and professional. As usual, the food was superb with excellent wine accompaniments. The daily "happy hour" is the best idea yet! We haven't decided where next year's cruise will ...

The Partial Cruise

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Poetry II

condorbo
2-5 Cruises • Age 80s

I chose this cruise because thirteen friends and family were going on cruise. Unfortunately, I was the only one who made it. Two got covid, and the others cancelled because cruise was shortened to four nights, due to strikes in France. I was already in Paris so I decided to take the abbreviated cruise. I can't really call it much of a cruise as we only spent two days actually cruising and ...
