Travel With Us | Live Voyage Reports
Live Voyage Reports allows you to follow the river cruise adventures of two avid cruisers, who also just happen to be professional journalists and photographers, while we are on our river cruises.
This allows you to cruise with us, virtually, and to engage with us during our cruises. If you have questions about a particular stateroom, the food being served and whether the ship caters to special diets, all you have to do is ask. It is a lot easier for us to answer those questions while on board than it is to answer them once we are back at our shoreside desks.
Check out the calendar for our upcoming voyages and follow along!

jennifer hillard says
We took an Avalon Danube river cruise in December – Vienna to Prague. Unfortunately our ship, the Panorama, was rammed by a Russian barge while still tied up at the dock in Vienna. We were all on board but the trip hadn’t even begun. We were able to begin the cruise but the ship was not allowed to go into German waters so a different ship was taken out of dry dock and rushed to meet us.
Later in the cruise, an accident in a lock prevented one day of our “scenic cruising” and caused us to miss one of the towns we were scheduled to visit.
Neither of these events were the fault of Avalon and the cruise line went out of their way to ensure that we still got to see everything by setting up bus tours, arranging meals when we couldn’t get back to the ship, providing free access to events in the towns we were visiting, etc. In addition, we were given a small rebate on the cost of our trips as soon as the first accident occured.
We were not happy cruisers because we really didn’t get a river cruise, more like a series of bus tours, and having to pack and move to a different ship for the last night negated the only-unpacking-once advantage of cruising. However, when we got home we received another sizeable cash rebate and a reduction on a future cruise that we were able to apply to a spring cruise already booked.
Avalon really went out of their way to keep us as happy as possible on the cruise and their compensation was more than fair. We will definitely use Avalon again.
