Reducing risk with hands-free service, including:
COMMITMENT TO THE CLEANEST SHIPS:
Enhanced cleaning procedures throughout each ship, including these additional steps that go above-and-beyond Avalon’s already strict procedures:
FOCUS ON CREW HEALTH:
Ensuring a healthy crew, including:
The ship was very smooth. Staff was outstanding and worked to fill your wishes. Food prepared let one experience the local cuisine. I put on weight, diet starts now. Weather cooperated for our trip and it didn't rain.
Better than a 5 star hotel.
This was our first river cruise and the ship, the crew, the level of service and the food met or mostly exceeded our expectations. I would recommend Avalon Waterways to anyone.
We got exactly what we were looking for. The river cruise on Avalon was such a great experience and we will surely do another one in the future.
Our Cruise Director, Akos, did a wonderful job making the necessary changes to our itinerary due to the high water situation. He and the staff were always helpful when having questions about a variety of situations. A pleasure being on the Avalon Envision!
Wonderful crew and ship! We had a fantastic time and would recommend to others. Dan & Gail
