Timeless Rivers of Europe: the Rhine & Seine for Wine Lovers Cruise Review

“We have nothing but praise for this cruise, it was phenomenal. My wife and I rarely go holidaying so this really felt like a treat more than anything else. The service given by the employees was great and so were the facilities on the ship. The next time we go cruising it’ll definitely be with Avalon.”

Louis and Barbara Keigh, Lancaster, Lancashire
