  1. Interesting that I just read an article which discussed the differences between the river cruise lines and the staff, contracted workers onboard and the differences. This may help correct, support some of the comments above. https://rivercruisepassenger.com.au/whos-really-running-your-ship-it-may-not-be-who-you-think/
  2. Thanks again. I am a researcher and planner so I always go into great detail for my trips and yes love the photo ops while touring. We are lucky to have some good friends on the trip with us but ofcourse will look forward to meeting new friends too. I have read many reviews and had been looking at Avalon for a few years and would have booked earlier but then a small pandemic hit! We will likely book a panorama cabin and enjoy the best of it all as you say. The experience will be the views the excursions and then for me also to visit relatives I haven’t seen in over 30 years in Budapest. Now hoping the river cruising and travel opens up as we hope. FYI we are on the west coast just outside of Vancouver. Much appreciated for your time To reply.
  3. Thank you Daisi, hard choice and I agree most of the time we will be up and about as we are very active and athletic and don't sit still often or if we do it is with a book on a deck. I am sure we will love the cruise but trying to reconcile if we will miss the river cruise experience we had envisioned without the large windows.
  4. Hello, so we are looking at a booking for an Avalon 14 night Amst --> Budapest cruise for summer 2022 and having a difficult decision between the basic/deluxe cabin or a panorama. From those who have sailed with Avalon would appreciate your input on these cabins, experience, use of the room/view, noise etc and which they would recommend and why. The upgrade comes at a steep price increase (nearly another 50% of the cost) and while we know the ultimate decision comes down to our preference, feedback from others will assist. Thank you!
