Avalon Grand France
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
First let me say that we can't say enough about how great our cruise director
(Jean-Loup Domart) was..It would take up too much space in this review .
Overall it was a fantastic trip ...great ports & More tours....Special mention for the trip to Giverny to Monet's house..not to be missed....The food and service were very good & we enjoyed the French wines served with dinner. The passengers were a nice blend of Americans, Canadians, Australians & Brits. I think that makes Avalon more interesting than lines catering only to Americans. My husband did the Normandy beach tour & for personal reasons I chose the alternate tour of the Normandy countryside which was great. Due to high water levels we were unable to return to Paris by boat for the last day & spent it in Conflans. In the morning we were bused to either Paris or our next cruise on the Scenery ( see Scenery review for 2nd half) Less
