  1. Notamermaid- our cruise in July starts in Nuremberg. We are getting there a day early so we can tour the old town and railway museum on our own! We are looking forward to it!
  2. I think 2019 is the first year for Avalon’s flexible dining. I would be interested to hear from 2019 cruisers how this works.
  3. I used a TA for our first river cruise two years ago. She was a river cruise specialist and had been on river cruises on AMA and Uniworld so it seemed like a good idea. I picked out the cruise and she booked it for me. No problem. But... It drove me crazy to wait for responses from her. For example, I got free air on Avalon and I wanted to know if I could chose seats on the flight ahead of time. I emailed the TA and she finally answered after 3 or 4 weeks. I only had 2 or 3 questions but each time it took forever for a response. There were no price breaks or incentives with the TA either. This time I called Avalon and booked directly. If I have any questions I can just pick up the phone and call them. No waiting for weeks for a reply. I much prefer it this way.
  4. My husband and I are going on Avalon’s German Grandeur cruise in July for our 30th anniversary. It’s a new itinerary for Avalon for 2019. We start in Nuremberg and end in Basel. We leave in 125 days! Can’t wait.
  5. I purchased a dual voltage curling iron on Amazon for about $20. I brought it on my Avalon cruise. No problem. Just used an adapter plug. I would never go on a vacation without it. I look like a drowned rat without a little help from the curling iron. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  6. We cruised in the first week of May 2017. It was unseasonably cold outside with some rain. Temps were mostly in the 50s with one day in the 40s. We needed jackets and sweaters when we were outside. When we were inside the ship it was comfortable without a sweater or jacket. We just wore our regular inside clothes and we were fine. Have a great cruise! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
