Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?
Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?
We are very satisfied with the Avalon river cruise. The ship personnel were very professional and friendly and provided everything we needed to make this trip extra special. Accommodations were comfortable, meals were excellent, and the on shore excursions were well-organized and enjoyable. In summary, we would not hesitate in booking another voyage with Avalon.
As pleased as always with Avalon. Very courteous and professional while making you feel special and comfortable.
The cruise was wonderful. The only thing that made us a little uncomfortable was the age of the other cruise passengers. I know that you cannot control this matter, however, we felt isolated due to the elderly clientele. We were able to find one couple that was in our age bracket. We pretty much ignored the other passengers and enjoyed the trip.
