  3. Avalon Imagery II
This was our 1st River Cruise, with about 12 Ocean Cruises under our belt. It was a completely different vacation than an Ocean Cruise. With less passengers, you have a more personal experience than on bigger ships. The staff was friendly and personable, yet very professional. Every part of our trip was wonderful. The embarkation and disembarkation were quick, efficient and seamless. The food was fresh and yummy! They tried to give you tastes of the areas while providing something for all palates. The entertainment was great and the port talks provided valuable information to help us plan our days. We had plenty of free time which we enjoyed and plenty of guided experiences that enriched our journey. The guides were all very knowledgeable and helpful. We did encounter low water on the river which caused us to have to change ships about 1/2 way. Our Cruise Director did an amazing job of making all the arrangements for the switch seem like it was all part of the plan. Avalon took great care to make sure we still got to see and experience everything we had anticipated when booking. We see another River Cruise in our future and we would definately recommend Avalon!

Cabin Review

Outside Stateroom with Window
Cabin D 101
The cabin was tight but you really are only in it to sleep and get ready for meals or activities. The staff kept the room clean to perfection and were never in the way. The linens and amenities were top of the line. There was plenty of closet space and the lighting was perfect. The bed was very comfortable and the temperature was to our liking. We only had the window instead of the balcony which was a great decision for us. It provided plenty of light and a look outside. The balconies were sometimes blocked by another ship when in port so up top always provided a better view.
