We looked at Viking and Avalon seemed to offer the identical itinerary with a smaller ship. We were very happy with the cruise, the stateroom, the itinerary,the excursions, the staff, the service, the food, and the entire experience. We have cruised on Ocean liners many times and this was comparable yet more intimate. We had some issues with our toilet, and it needed to be replaced before the end of the cruise. That was annoying and then our neighbors, who had the adjacent cabin and whom we were traveling with, also had issues with their toilet. The issues were resolved promptly but it detracted from our cruise a bit. The food in the dining experience was excellent. While the choices were limited, there was always an option for diners that didn't want the main fare. I did wish there were (included) sparkling wine options, as I am not a regular wine drinker as much.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom with French Balcony
Cabin B 219
The cabin was small but had everything we needed. The AC wouldn't go any higher and there was a hot breeze blowing out of one side constantly. We couldn't really open our stateroom doors due to the mosquitoes and Rhine Flies (a silvery colored flea looking bug that bit), so I would ask that there be a screen to keep those bugs out in the future.
