  3. Avalon Tapestry II
The venue/places to see was what attracted us -- we wanted to see both the northern and southern route. Our cruise director (Jon Luc) was absolutely superb and he not only took good care us, in a very detailed fashion, but also provided some entertaining insights throughout the entire cruise. We had him on both legs. He was always on top of everything and his information was always correct. The transportation was excellent with good drivers and good guides. Most of the guides spoke decent English so we were able to follow most of what was presented for our enjoyment. All of the guides were well prepared and displayed a very good command of the venue. We had been wishing to go to the beaches at Normandy for many years and we were not disappointed. The train trip between the northern and southern route was very interesting. The ship was clean and layed out very well to provide a lot of comfort and convenience. The on-board drinks, beyond the complementary wines at dinner, were rather pricy but there was a "happy hour" on most days that knocked down to tab to half (reasonable). The wine served at dinner was generally good and there were choices available to suit most guests.

The evening tour of Paris starting at 9:30 PM was great! It shouldn't be missed.
