This Open-Air balcony is unique to Avalon and a highlight of this river cruising experience. It’s seven feet wider than other cruise ship balconies and brings you right up to the water’s edge.
You knew without a doubt each meal and snack would be great. It competed fiercely with Italy for some of the best food on our European trip, it was definitely more diverse!
There are no swimming pools on a European river cruise, but there is a hot tub with an expansive view!
Our scenic sails were from Passau to Linz and from Melk through the picturesque Wachau Valley to Vienna. It was incredible sailing through this gorge and seeing the little villages on the edge of the river that looked like colorful paintings.
The ship also had board games and shelves full of reading books in the Club lounge. There’s a fitness center and an Adventure Host holding morning yoga classes, which I really enjoyed attending.
