Avalon European River Cruises Budapest to Amsterdam

A westbound adventure with Avalon European River Cruises begins in Budapest. Allow yourself to watch the five-minute video or browse these photographs with comments attached. We are a travel agency located in Surprise, AZ and highly recommend Avalon due to a simple slogan: “fewer people, more space.” This is the result of the unique cabin design whereby the bed faces the water and not a wall. Folks, there are 24 more people in line for everything with the river cruise line on the TV.  All the ships are the same size due to lock restrictions.  The prices are comparable.

Gellert Spa view from Avalon European River Cruises

Before my wife and I met the Avalon Expression, we went to the Gellert Spa and Thermal Baths in Budapest. There were pools of water ranging from 86 to 106 degrees F, a sauna, steam room and multiple showers. The menu of choices was confusing, but the waters were warm on a brisk October day.

We met at the Continental Hotel Budapest.  We had afternoon coffee and met some of our fellow passengers.  Avalon whisked our luggage to the ship and our suite while took a leisurely stroll and met back at the hotel to board a coach to the pier, about a mile away.

On the first full day of the cruise, we were given a choice.  We could go on two excursions by bus or sail on the ship all day.  We chose to sail. We had to  pass certain bridge by nightfall because the river would be closed at that point for overnight construction.  We missed our included tour in Budapest, plus Avalon offered all guests a choice of free afternoon tours too.  This is how we spent the afternoon:
