12 Night European Splendor Westbound (Vienna To Amsterdam)
Sail Date: May 20, 2016
Ship: Avalon Passion
Cabin Number: 215
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

All of the staff were very friendly and professional with smiling faces all the time. We got the vibe that they really wanted us to have an enjoyable trip and they were very caring and considerate. This was the 2nd cruise on this brand new ship which was very well designed, especially the bathroom. The food was excellent and the wait staff were top notice. Generous pours of complimentary wine with dinner.  Nico our cruise director was the best.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The cabin was spacious with everything we needed. Would have liked to have a separate sheet and blanket instead of a duvet. Also, a memory foam pillow would have been nice. But these did not detract at all from an overall high quality, wonderful cruise.

Ship Tip

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