Active & Discovery on the Moselle Cruise Review

“My wife and I had never cruised with Avalon Waterways before but let me say, I’m glad we took the jump! I enjoyed the way they had multiple excursion options clearly labelled so you had a choice of what you were getting into. We have always wanted to go on a tour through Bad Nauheim due to pure curiosity. It’s safe to say our curiosity has been satisfied!”

Peter Armshead, London

Active & Discovery on the Moselle FAQ

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

Will my room have a view?

The Avalon Imagery II boasts two full decks filled with Panorama suites, however if you book a suite that isn’t on either of those decks we can’t guarantee a view.

What kind of activities can I expect during the cruise?

From bike rides and hikes to cable-car rides, we blend a selection of Classic, Discovery and Active excursions so that there’s something for everybody at all levels of mobility.

Will I see the Botanical Gardens?

That depends on you. There’s an option to visit the Botanical Gardens during day 7, whilst we’re moored in Frankfurt. So unless you choose to embark on a different adventure, yes you will.
