    Awesome! Our first trip was well beyond our expectations. It was only supposed to be one trip, but it was so great, we booked another, this time a Danube River cruise leaving from Budapest. We've only been on an Avalon cruise and have stayed with them... Show more

    Loved the tour and the included excursions. It would have been good to spend less time in Amsterdam and extra time sailing during the day. Also, a disco of an evening would be great!

    Excellent service and staff. Wonderful meals, very clean accommodations. We enjoyed the included tours and activities. Having English speaking staff was a big advantage. We would recommend Avalon as a cruise company.
