  3. Avalon Tapestry II
Our amazing travel agent was the one who gave us a glowing report on taking a river cruise and with Avalon Waterways...because we trust him we "took a chance" and were wildly ecstatic. The Avalon rooms (Royal Suite) don't have a typical balcony but rather a balcony door that opens up into the room...sweet! We took the Paris to Paris trip in late September with one of the destinations Normandy beaches. Every port had something unique and memorial to experience. There were cathedrals and castles, of course, but there was also Monet's Garden's, walking a local town to get the flavor of the neighborhoods. Every person we met along the way were welcoming and added to the experience with the trip. The river boat (ship?) bar, dining area and staff were just perfect. Amazing local cuisine, wine that changed constantly so you could experience more than just the standard wines and of course the staff was very customer service focused. We felt special the entire time.

Four+ stars

Cabin Review

Outside Stateroom with French Balcony
Cabin P 306
The size of the royal suite was amazing. Enough closet space for everything. A sitting area that easily holds 2 other guests and a bed facing the the balcony...everything was perfect.
