We went with family, No children. Children would be board but it was great for adults. Our travel agent was amazing and helped us with the booking. Scenic looked after everything else. Hotel/airport transfers were done with high end buses and professionals. We stayed at the hotels recommended by scenic and were not disappointed. The meals were amazing. It sucks to be home and try to figure out what to cook after having everything done for us. The quality was fantastic. The entertainment was great. Our cruise director was fantastic. After cruising many times before it was nice doing a small boat. If you worry about getting sea sick, dont. The rivers are very calm. We live in a city with locks so it was a different experience being in a ship going through the locks. Overall an amazing trip. I would recommend Scenic to anyone. I would defiitely go again. I would only suggest not the last cruise of the season. Read Less

We were told by friends how great the service and overall experience was. It lived up to what we were told. The staff was ready to help and even went out of there way to make the trip enjoyable. It was very nice to have everything included in the price. I have been with other tour providers and it seemed that there were always hidden costs, but not with Scenic even the tipping was covered. The port talks were very informative and helped with making each day go smoothly. The cabins were clean and well thought out. The shower was great and the pressure of the water was better then home. (I was in the navy and boat water press isn,t always great). Dinning was fantastic with every day having a good selection and the dinners being out standing with the quality. On board entertainment and activities hit the mark for the audience. Read Less

We were invited by some friends to join a group that was planning to cruise the Rhine River from Zurich to Amsterdam, so we decided to go. Our travel agent booked us on the Scenic Jasper with the rest of the group. From the moment we stepped on board on 5/8 until we got off the ship, it was a truly wonderful time. Our cabin was spacious and well designed, and it was kept spotlessly clean and supplied by the housekeeping staff. The ship itself was in immaculate condition, and the lounges and dining areas were extremely clean and comfortable. The staff, starting with the tour director, Tadej, and our assigned butler, Marko, all the way through the wait staff, bartenders, chef and kitchen crew. maintenance staff, and every other staff member, were all extremely personable and attentive to the needs of the guests. We were made to feel most welcome on board and valued as customers. The activities that were planned were interesting and informative, and were well planned and organized. There were several evening during which local entertainment was brought on board, and those occasions were thoroughly enjoyed. One night we were bussed to a concert hall at which we were entertained by two highly talented opera singers and a classically trained pianist. It was a very moving experience. The food and beverages on board were simply outstanding. Each night before dinner was served, Chef Bogdan came out and addressed the passengers with a preview of the meal; the wine steward described for us the wine and food pairings; and Cruise Director Tadej informed us of the next day's ship movements, available activities and individual options. The staff's attentiveness to the wants and needs of the passengers was impressive. My wife and I completely and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and we are already planning to take another cruise with Scenic. And we are going to recruit another circle of friends and relatives to join us. When we left the ship for the last time, it was a difficult moment because we had been embraced so well by the staff and now we had to leave them. We will be back! Read Less

This was out 2nd cruise with Avalon. The first was on the Senn River to Normandy. The crew and dinning staff were always fantastic. The excursions were always planned well with almost perfect guides. The food on board was awesome and perfect. What i might suggest is a rating on excursions that require a lot of walking. We took the Maggot Line excursion, and while we were fine, there were a few that had to cut the tour short. During the cruise, there was an issue with low water, however the staff and Captain kept us advised as we approached the area in question. It turned out that there was no need for a transfer as the Captain was able to get the craft thru the area in question without any inconvenience to the passengers, which is a big credit to the staff of Avalon. The entertainment was great, and what i thought was really good was the pre-dinner briefing by the Cruise Director who always did a fantastic job. Avalon always does the best!!! Read Less

We travelled with two other couples, one of whom was celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. The ship, staff and food were all amazing! All of the extra tours were terrific as well as the ones that were included with the cruise. So much to see and do, just breathtaking. The only stop/city we were not pleased with was MainzGermany. It didn't really have anything to offer or to go see when every other docking city was so beautiful and had so much. I encourage everyone to sign up for all or as many as you can of the optional excursions. Every single one is worth it and is a life time experience. I should add that the food was outstanding! I think everyone of us gained at least 5 pounds, but so worth it and so delicious. This cruise is a once in a life time experience. The sites, history and the ship and staff are all amazing. We all loved our time spent with Avalon. Read Less

We were extremely impressed by the staff and crew of the Avalon Affinity. The ship may be the oldest in the fleet, but it is not showing it's age. The crew was absolutely wonderful. Meals were top notch and selection of local wines and beer were perfect. The excursions were always entertaining. Much to see in this part of the world. Tour guides were always well spoken and very personable. We highly recommend seeing the Maginot Line when in Strasbourg. It is a sobering reminder of the last world war. Kiril (Entertainer) was great at keeping the energy high in the lounge on nights when we were all tired from exploring during the day. Our only complaint is that it all had to come to an end eventually. I'd highly recommend extending the trip on both ends of the cruise in both Switzerland and Amsterdam. So much to see and experience. "Chapeau" to everyone involved in pulling off such a wonderful cruise. See you next time! Read Less
