  3. Avalon Tapestry II
We wanted a cruise that included both Paris & Normandy, so this one fit the bill. The ship is by far the best we have ever sailed. Although you don't spend much time in your cabin, the fact it was so relaxing, roomy, and had luxurious bathroom made it that much better. Dining was great. There was excellent variety, and the complimentary wine was good. On a previous cruise with another line, the complimentary wine was poor, and you had to purchase something better. The guides on all the shore excursions were very knowledgeable. We learned a lot about D-Day and the artists. Our only complaint is the trip to Montmartre. We felt it was expensive for what we received.

Cabin Review

Outside Stateroom with French Balcony
Cabin B 228
We do not remember the room nbr, nor type, French Balcony A, B, or P. However, the room was excellent. King size bed, and sliding glass door. It was great sailing with the curtains open, having wine and watching the world go by. Very relaxing.
