Avalon was a wonderful experience in 2016 on a European Splendor sailing! I traveled from Amsterdam to Vienna on the Avalon Passion. This is the first time I have been on a River Cruise and it was an amazing experience! River Cruising is so much different than an Ocean Cruise. The River Cruise is much more relaxing and less stressful.
The Passion is one of the newest Ships in the Avalon fleet built this year 2016. We had just over 100 people (almost full capacity) on the ship but it did not feel crowded at any time.
Dining was a pure delight and the Panorama Lounge was great fun. Avalon has bikes on board so you can enjoy the various ports of your own if you would like. Avalon's included shore excursions was quite nice as well. I would recommend this cruise to everyone. The ages on our ship ranged from 19 to 80 and everyone had a great time!
