We had a most enjoyable Highlights of Germany river cruise arranged through Bluewater Travel in September on the Avalon Waterways ship Luminere. The ship was lovely, very clean and well equipped cabins, beautiful meals in the delightful dining room and lovely communal bar areas. Everything was extremely well organised with every detail seen to. Excursions were delightful being so organised with expert guides taking charge so no danger of missing anything, or getting lost ourselves!! The first three days were spent in the beautiful hotel Sofitel in Munich, which was really fabulous with tours arranged but plenty of free time to explore the great beer gardens and get the feel the German way of life. The Cruise Director Bart was so helpful, amusing and went above and beyond to make sure everyone's needs and expectations were met! All staff were polite and helpful to the extreme. All entrance fees were and excursion expenses were included so no unexpected extras! So all in all it was a marvellous holiday! Would certainly recommend both Bluewater and Avalon to anyone wishing to experience river cruising! Thanks to all concerned!
