This is the first time I have been on a river boat cruise and did not know what to expect.....thought there might be too much time on my hands. Quite the contrary. The excursions were nice; the accommodations were fantastic; the ship personnel was efficient, kind, fun and always helpful.

Great cruise line

We enjoyed our trip very much. It was our first time on a river cruise so everything was new to us. The staff members, especially the wait staff and housekeepers, worked very hard each day. They went out of their way to be pleasant and accommodating to the guests. Our cabin was located on the 2nd level. We had a wonderful view from balcony. The bedding was very soft and we have never slept on a more comfortable mattress. The daily excursions were fun and well organized. The local guides were very knowledgeable.

All was well above expectations except disembarkation. Did not like being taken to a holding room in another hotel. Not a good ending. Do not know why we weren't taken directly to the airport

The Tranquility II was a beautiful ship. We had a well appointed state room, larger than we were expecting, especially the bath room. There was plenty of closet/storage space. Loved the large glass doors that could be opened for viewing of the river as we travelled. The lounges and dining area were very comfortable with large windows throughout for a great view. The ship was very clean and well cared for. The crew gave great service and were very friendly. The food was excellent with regional specialties served along the way.

A very nice ship with excellent service and shore excursions. We particularly liked that any walking excursions had special groups for slow walkers and made sure everyone got around fine.

Much smaller ship and with less amenities that Viking ships. "Port Talks" were of little value. Took less than 15 minutes and really did not give any pertinent data.

We did a 10 day cruise on the Danube from Budapest to Prague on Avalon's Tranquility II, the ship was beautiful and very clean. Our Room: We loved the big window wall that opened to turn our entire room into the balcony, the bed was amazing, and the room never felt too small. It had plenty of storage space in closets and drawers and the beds were designed so that your suitcases slid underneath and out of the way. The Ship: The ship was very nice, plenty of lounge spaces, beautiful dining room and wonderful crew. The number of passengers was small enough that the crew all soon learned your names, what you liked to drink, food preferences, etc. The food was wonderful, with many different choices at each meal, and snacks and beverages available around the clock. The Excursions: Tibor our cruise director was very knowledgeable and we had wonderful included excursions each day along with choices of extra excursions. We will definitely cruise with Avalon again!
