Avalon Creativity Cabins

Editor Rating
Cabins
5.0

Creativity's 70 cabins fall into two configurations. There are 68 standard cabins, each measuring 172 square feet, and two Junior Suites at 258 square feet each. All cabins are double-occupancy -- even the Junior Suites. Suites have coffee tables and sofas in the additional space, but the sofas do not convert into beds.

All 59 of the cabins, including the two suites, on Royal and Sapphire Decks -- the top two accommodation decks -- have floor-to-ceiling sliding-glass doors that open onto French balconies. All told, these represent 84 percent of the total complement of cabins. The remaining 11 cabins on Indigo Deck (the lowest passenger deck) have only small, rectangular windows set near the ceiling in the outside wall. Since river cruising places the ship close to shore nearly all the time, the window size and placement in these lower cabins is a major drawback.

Standard cabins are cozy but large enough in size that we never felt cramped. Storage space is ample, with hanging bars, drawers and shelves in the closets and multiuse drawers in the desks, dressers and end tables. Storage space in the bathrooms was among the best we've seen, with shelving below and along both sides of the vanities. Both suites and cabins have separate shower stalls with glass doors. No accommodations have tubs. Bathrooms in suites are larger, and details are a bit more upscale (marble versus faux slate floor tiles, granite versus ceramic countertops). Bath amenities are limited to the "big four": bath gel, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion.

Decor is utilitarian -- beige for the most part. There is little art, but a bold, red, graphic carpet adds a pop of color to the rooms. Cabin amenities include European-style high-thread-count linens and down-filled duvets, plush cotton robes, safes and hair dryers. In each cabin, there is a mini-bar, which is manually checked and refilled by the cabin steward. There is also a 32" flat-screen TV with European and English-speaking news and entertainment channels.

This was an older ship but still intact, clean, well-maintained, and did I mention clean. Bedding has improved since my last cruise to mattress toppers and duvet arrangement. ... Read more
