We had heard that river cruises were excellent. Love the smaller atmosphere and personal service. The embarkation and disembarkation were extremely easy, well planned and executed. Our cabin was beautiful and well maintained. We were ... Read more

My wife chose this cruise after doing her research. Our experience was overwhelming. Our crew was fantastic. The first class comfort aboard the ship and the panoramic views, always being pleasantly greeted by the crew as we walked ... Read more

I went as an invitation from a friend. I've always been a "cruiser" but this experience has definitely opened my horizons of travel. This provided a more intimate setting. Every aspect from embarkation to disembarking was ... Read more

Both my husbands dad and my dad served in Europe during WWII. My husbands dad was part of the invasion of Normandy as air support. For this reason we wanted to do the Paris to Normandy Beach river cruise. This was our first river ... Read more

The venue/places to see was what attracted us -- we wanted to see both the northern and southern route. Our cruise director (Jon Luc) was absolutely superb and he not only took good care us, in a very detailed fashion, but also provided ... Read more

We chose this cruise as a last minute booking because it seemed exceptional value for money - inclusive of private travel to the airport and onboard gratuities. We travelled to Paris and were impressed with the organisation of the ... Read more

We thought this would be a slow-paced itinerary, since geographically it doesn't cover much ground, but it ended up being quite busy. The included tours were very well organized and had great guides. We had the same one; Estelle for ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of where it went and specifically the Tapestry II river boat. We had always wanted to go to visit the Normandy area, specifically the WWII sites and Avalon seemed to have the best combination of the things we ... Read more

I chose Avalon because I wanted to experience the cabins that had the bed facing the window and the glass door opened all the way up. The second reason was if for some reason the ship could not make it up the river due to weather ... Read more

I have never been on a River cruise and I was on the FAM, because I needed to experience one and the itinerary was a great fit for me. I thought the food was really good but the temperature was a little cool for my tastes. The lunch time ... Read more

We choose this cruise because we had previously traveled with Avalon. The cruise was a round trip from Paris to Normandy. We booked a pre-cruise night in Paris through Avalon at the Pullman Paris Montparnasse. Hotel was nice but location ... Read more

I chose this ship originally for the itinerary -- mainly Normandy and Giverney. The Seine River caused a few problems from all the rain it was quite high. We needed to be transported to Rouen to board the ship. From start to finish ... Read more

The Avalon cruise along the Seine to Normandy on the near-new Tapestry II was our first cruise of any kind. At just seven days duration, it was a "taste" to discover whether this type of holiday was to our liking, as previously ... Read more

This was our first river trip and we picked the Seine trip so we could travel along the river and spend a little time in Paris. We made a small mistake with our flights. Boarding doesn't take place until around 4pm but we arrived in Paris ... Read more

This was our third Avalon cruise and we can't say enough positive. Our welcome onboard was seamless and our cabin was beautifully designed with efficient storage, and high end finishes. The full wall sliding windows were perfect for ... Read more

My husband and I travelled with my brother and his wife on a 7 night cruise from Paris to Normandy and back. We have done several cruises before, but this was our first river cruise and loved the smaller, more intimate style offered. We ... Read more

We love cruising rivers in Europe and went on Tapestry I about 6 years ago on Rhine. Tapestry Ii has much better dining area, lounges, rooms, etc. However, they are still working kinks out on safety in the halls. Walking down the hall ... Read more

My wife and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary on board in Paris. We made friends with fellow cruisers as river boats provide a more intimate setting and promote these connections. It was great to be in good company even though we were ... Read more

We wanted a cruise that included both Paris & Normandy, so this one fit the bill. The ship is by far the best we have ever sailed. Although you don't spend much time in your cabin, the fact it was so relaxing, roomy, and had ... Read more
