  3. Avalon Tapestry II
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 watching the scenery pass by. Olivier (the head chef) was not only charismatic but incredibly talented.This was definitely gourmet dinning and the best of any cruise we have experienced. The waiters were attentive and it was amazing how they remembered passengers' names and preferences considering this was only a one week cruise. The included tours were well organized with and the guides were knowledgeable and pleasant. As Canadians, we appreciated the opportunity to choose the British/Canadian option for the day at Normandy’s beaches. Having cruised on large ships in the past, we tried an Avalon cruise from Vienna to Amsterdam in 2012, followed by another Avalon tour/cruise on the Mekong River in 2014, before our France cruise. Irrawaddy in Myanmar is next... Don't care to try large ship cruising again and Avalon has proven to be consistently top notch.

Great new ship
