Romantic Rhine River Cruise on Avalon Waterways Felicity
My trip to the romantic Rhine was the best experience! I have traveled on cruise ships before because I love the ‘unpack once’ idea. I traveled many years ago with my company as an award to Paris so I cannot say I had not traveled to Europe before but this river cruise was soooo different! The history I learned and recalled was outstanding! I know why my mom traveled to Europe as many times that she did. She loved history.
Each stop that was included on my trip was a new adventure. Amsterdam with all the bikes, bike parking deck, canals, homes, flower market and museums were so different than the USA.
I enjoyed the walking, looking, listening, and picture taking at each stop. Each guide was very informative at each destination! I was amazed at the activity at each stop – the economy must be doing very well along the Rhine. The castles, the Lorilie story and how busy (barges) the Rhine River was. The Heidelberg castle and all of its history and we walked right there! Each town has its own story and place in history.
Food was wonderful and wine with dinner each night! The River cruise was clean, concise, good food and an opportunity to meet other people from different countries and see them many times during the week. (Not always true on the big cruise ship).
Would I do a trip with Avalon again? In a heartbeat! What was the best of all the trip cost was all inclusive! Would I book through Palmer Vacations & Destination Planners again? Always! Lisa Shall has booked several trips for me and I have never been disappointed; neither with her recommendations or the trips booked for us.
