  3. Avalon Tranquility II
Right time / rather new cruise ship / Love the cruise director, loved the crew always happy, friendly and willing to do whatever to make the trip an experience!! The food portions were very good, not too large and plenty to eat. Sometimes the food was locally focused and it gave you the opportunity to try something different and other options if you chose not to try something different. The nightly entertainment was good, but repetitive with the same music night after night. We did however have some different entertainers come on the ship 2-4 times during the trip. The weather was cold & gloomy but what do you expect for December in Europe. Wish we could of stayed longer in each village, city we toured just so much to take in. As a first timer river cruiser we will be back, probably in warmer weather to experience instead of freezing.

Cabin Review

Outside Stateroom with French Balcony
Cabin A 318
Excellent layout with beds facing out to the water, outstanding shower pressure & hot!
Bedding was very good, but the love seat & chair need some improvement-just average. These 2 items need to be upgraded

The furniture in the public areas especially the lounge and coffee lounge were very uncomfortable and I found this to be unwelcoming especially given that it was a small ship and we wanted to enjoy these areas.
