Avalon Passion overview

Yet another beautiful Suite Ship graces the rivers of Europe in 2016. The Avalon Passion welcomes passengers to their home-away-from-home with two full decks of Panorama Suites, featuring Wall-to-Wall Panoramic Windows that transform into a unique Open-Air Balcony. With 200 square feet, Panorama Suites are more than 30% larger than the industry standard and ideal for stretching out and relaxing-or even throwing a private cocktail party for up to six adults in the spacious sitting area.
Onboard, passengers enjoy free Wi-Fi access, complimentary computer use in public areas, a Fitness Center with state-of-the-art equipment, an elevator, and an expansive Sky Deck with shade system, premium lounge chairs, whirlpool, deck games, and the delightful Sky Bistro for al fresco lunches of light grill fare.

Good first experience by stjcaj57169019

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Avalon Passion / Destination: River Cruises - Europe

My cruise was not listed. Bucharest westbound to Budapest. Crew was excellent, sites were interesting from a historical perspective. The scenery along this section of the Danube is not spectacular. Some areas are struggling economically and is evident in the infrastructure.

Christmas market tour by maintainer4c

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Avalon Passion / Destination: River Cruises - Europe

We were on the Rhine River with Avalon in Dec 2017. Based on our great experiences with that trip, we decided to return for the Danube. If we had the experience like we did in Dec 2018, we would not have considered rebooking. This trip was just plain ordinary with a couple of poor itinerary days. Imagery II Dec 2017 did lots of little things to make the time more festive. For example, little treats/gifts in the room each night, better themed meals, and staff who were more engaging and attentive. In addition to the absolutely terrible arrangements for Nuremberg, it seems that minor tweaks in the schedule would have improved the ports of call. It was apparent that there is very little expectation to do anything outside the guided tour. If you did the walking tours, minimal time to do anything else. I wouldn't recommend the Danube cruise itinerary for anyone other than those travelers who can only do the bare minimum of a trip. Disappointing.

Tulips and Windmills by VermontGoldie

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Avalon Passion / Destination: River Cruises - Europe

What's the difference between a Dyke and a Dam?  Now I know.  How does Holland relate to the Netherlands? Now I know.  Is Belgium part of Flanders or vice versa? Now I know.  Beautiful Tulips, Diamonds, Ancient Castles and centers with ridiculously small cobblestone streets. Living below sea level is not for me despite the Delta works, flood prevention system, but a great adventure.

Find out how many locks you will encounter before deciding on your itinerary. This route included 66 locks which was time consuming

Lots of locks, but I found them interesting. Visited all the major cities in the area and got to live history
