We spent 3 days in Prague at the intercontinental hotel which was vert nice. The coach ride to Nuremberg went really well and was comfortable. The ship was lovely and we liked the decor. Much more comfortable than our previous cruise on Uniworld. They had a lot of optional tours which we opted into. Guides were good and very knowledgeable. They had gentle walking tours for those of us that with a few limitations. Each day was a different experience and all were enjoyable and informative. Food was pretty good. The light lunch in the lounge was just a buffet wilth fewer selections than in the restaurant. The prices for drinks were fairly reasonable especially if you went to happy hour. Entertainment was mostly a piano player and music was pretty dated. They did bring in a singer one night and the crew did a cute skit one night. We had several servers that we really liked and gave us exceptional service but many were not very observant of diners needs. We would go on Avalon again.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom with Window
Cabin E 230
Nicely decorated. Enjoyed having a sitting area and window view was amazing. The movies in room were a good selection. More clothes drawers would have been nice.
