    The whole Avalon cruise was beyond my expectations. The cruise crew were exceptional. There is nothing I would complain about. We were looked after. We would definitely recommend Avalon Waterways as a 5 star cruise line

    Just finished the Romantic Rhine from Amsterdam to Basel and everything about the trip was superb! We cannot say enough and had the time of our lives. The Ship was new and beautiful, the crew and staff were very attentive and professional. The excursions were great and the food was amazing! What else could you ask for?

    We did our first river cruise in May last year from Budapest to Amsterdam on the Impression. We had a fantastic time and could not fault it and have booked another cruise. This time from Prague to Bucharest on the Passion in June next year. And no doubt there will be more. It is only Avalon Waterways for us.

    Traveling on a cruise ship is the way to go. Traveling with Avalon Waterways was the best trip EVER. A comfortable room, great amenities, wonderful service, awesome food. Shore excursion were included in the cost of the cruise and there was something to do at every stop. They offered three levels of walking on the excursion...fast, middle, and slow. I thought that was a great option. The tour direction on board did an overview of the next day, just before we went in to dinner. He was always informative. We always had interesting views as we traveled the waterways. Our steward turned down our bed every night, left a chocolate, and had the TV tuned to a fireplace and nice music. I could go on and on. I opted for Avalon over Viking because our room had a great layout. One could lay in bed and watch the scenery go by. The bathroom was roomy and had a walk in shower vs being really small or having to get in a tub to shower. I could go on!
