Sail Date: Sep 2016
Cabin: Deluxe Stateroom with French Balcony

What a great trip Paris to Normandy. The staff were wonderful, the food was excellent - I can't say enough about how happy we were with this trip. The ship was clean, the cabin with a French balcony was roomy enough with great views. Dining options: there was always something new to try along with old standbys, we never went hungry. The wine at dinner was plentiful. Evening entertainment (DJ most nights), and staff variety show was fun. The local history experts talk on Normandy Beach History was very informative and gave us a good refresher course before or Normandy Beach Landing Excursion. (A nice and thoughtful touch were the roses we were given to place on a grave in the cemetery.)

The excursions, both included and optional were on time, and well run with excellent tour guides. Any questions or concerns were answered/addressed in a timely manner. This was our first river cruise and I would go on another with Avalon in a heartbeat!

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom with French Balcony

Cabin A

Clean, nice to be able to have fresh air and watch the river go by. Plenty of room to put your clothing away. Nice touches by the hospitality staff - recipes, "fireplace", soft music, towel animal surprises.
