This is the first review I've written on Cruise Critic but the 8th cruise I've taken on Avalon. I felt I needed to share just how professional, service oriented and wonderful the trips have been with Avalon. This most recent one we started in Cannes and ended in Paris with 6 friends on the Poetry II. From beginning to end the service was top notch and there could not be a better, more humorous and competent Cruise Director than Danielle Oosterwal. She was consistently patient with people yet fun and outgoing and is a wonderful reflection on Avalon. Our beginning hotel, The International Carlton at Cannes and our final hotel, The Hotel du Collectionneur Arc de Triomphe in Paris were both top of the line.

The entire staff was wonderfully accommodating and could not have been more service oriented. The ship itself is lovely, the excursions were outstanding and we would all rate this trip a solid 5!

Cabin Review

Cabin S

This is a new boat and all 3 of our cabins were wonderful. The only possible complaint would be the intermittent television reception which really didn't matter much as we were busy with other things.
