Reviews From Avalon Cruise Customers

“We chose Avalon because they offered something different to other cruise companies, the same routes through Europe but just a more original slant. The vessels were excellent – this is the second time we have cruised with Avalon – and really well laid out, perhaps because they are newer, and the food is excellent. The port tours definitely won’t disappoint. Avalon seems to be able to blend predictable tourist attractions with the more unusual and cater for everybody’s tastes. Book now; you won’t be disappointed”

Jane and Dave Parkinson, Weymouth

FAQs

Find answers to some of the most common questions about river cruising here.

Is Avalon hard to contact?

They can be, but that’s a good sign as they are always busy and really popular with the cruising public. The best thing to do is book with Crui.se, and we’ll do all the hard work for you. Avalon cruise reviews are excellent, so you can be confident you are booking the best, just without any hassle. We’ll take care of all the arrangements for you.

Do I need a passport before boarding an Avalon River Cruise?

Good thinking, and yes, you will! Some Avalon River cruises go through eight countries, so you’ll require the same ID documents as if you had travelled by air. Always make sure your passport is up to date – that’s an easy one to overlook.

What’s the food like on board?

Award-winning, delicious and varied, in that order! Avalon River cruises mirror the vessel’s route with regional and local dishes, which make the very best of culture, heritage and oodles of fresh ingredients. There’s always a wide choice of dishes and plenty of vegan and vegetarian options available too.
