Did not know what to expect with a river cruise as we've always gone on large cruise ships but ended up loving it.

Enjoyed our first river cruise and will definitely book again.

Internet was only available inside boat in many cases, on upper deck and anywhere outside it was spotty. The crew members were awesome. This was our first cruise with Avalon, we had previously cruised with another company on the Rhine, but were joining our friends who had already selected Avalon, and we were pleased with it.

Loved the River cruise venue. Intimate, quiet, and friendly.
