"Improved customer service would make this a perfect holiday."
"Fast, efficient and friendly"
The staff were very efficient and friendly and the whole booking process was simple. Although we booked independent accommodation to extend our holiday, the Avalon rep booked our return flights and made things easy for us.
This was a tremendous journey. The ports were stunning and numerous. The daily inclusive walking tour was an excellent way of getting to know each destination; the walks were well organised and we had some great shore guides. The Avalon Impression was a fantastic ship, it was beautiful inside, the staff were warm and efficient and the Captain was very hands on. Food was great and everything exceeded our expectations.
"had high expectations and we were not disappointed "
All services, food, excursions and cabins etc were faultless.
Cannot think of any criticism worth noting
Very expensive but almost everything included in price.
"Our cruise far exceeded our expectations. It was superb in every respect..."
Our cruise far exceeded our expectations.
It was superb in every respect
"Very high standard cruise"
First river cruise, so did not know what to expect, but judging by prices, it was going to be of a high standard. Ava!on Impression was superb.
Whole package was exceptional. Ship, crew, service and especially the food!
"Amsterdam to Budapest August 2017"
In general a lovely holiday. Staff on boat very nice and helpful. Yes would recommend Avalon and will probably use them again
Almost perfect a few minor details would help to make it perfect. Driver to airport was dangerous kept in the outside lane of motorway and was drifting across nearly side swiping cars twice. The trip to the airport should be relaxing. The Wi-Fi on the boat has a strange firewall which meant we couldn't get BBC iPlayer for the radio so need more music on the TV. Food could be served warmer.
"kind staffs, delicious foods, relaxed time..."
kind staffs, delicious foods, relaxed time
good excursion, interesting place to port, good lecture for famous place
"Mr Nicco and all the crew did everything to make it a very enjoyable time "
Itineraary very good evn a group for those not so fast on their feet
Very good from the pick up to return to our house.
The one downside was the access restrictions to the top deck. We recognise the safety requirements. However, we believe some compromise needs to be found.
A little extra work for the crew. Big benefit for the passengers. We actually booked a 3rd week while on the ship. Our only proviso was that we would have more access to the top deck. Once we heard this was possible we had no hesitation in extending our holiday.
