Trip of a Lifetime

Avalon Illumination Cruise Review by Paddyo1993

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2018
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Stateroom with Window

Our cruise down the Danube in December was truly a trip of a lifetime. The entire staff aboard the Avalon Illumination were amazing. We received first class treatment in a very relaxed, friendly and professional environment. The Christmas Markets and all the sites along the way were beautiful.

The Illumination was the prettiest boat on the river and was "decked out" for the holidays.

The food and wine selections at all meals were wonderful and the lounge/bar was perfect place to unwind and get together with fellow guests after dinner and various times throughout the day.

Sabine, our Cruise Director, was very helpful with suggestions and detailed information about how to navigate each stop along the way when we wanted to go out and explore on our own.

Avalon is a top notch company and we have recommended this cruise line to all of our friends back home.

Thank you, Avalon, for making the beginning of our holiday season so merry and bright!

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom with Window
Cabin D 111

Our cabin was very comfortable and well maintained by cruise staff. It was large enough for my husband and I to stow all of our luggage and move freely about. The well stocked fridge was great and prices were the same as if we ordered a beer or wine in the lounge.
