We were very pleased with our cruise, cruise director and our special history lecturer. We actually picked this cruise because of the history theme and we were not disappointed. The staff met our every need including arrangement of a taxi for us to visit the Eiffel Tower. The guest lecturer, Nigel Stewart, was involved and excellent. All indications he appeared to be very knowledgeable of the subject. The transfers from plane to ship to train to hotel to place went without a hitch. There was always someone there to assist if required. We used the staff at the hotel in London to guide us on how to get to and from our tour locations. Tony, our cruise director was always available for questions. We participated in the special dining options and were not disappointed in the regional meals. We have no hesitations in using Avalon again or recommending them to others. If we could make one change in our whole trip, it would be to pick a ship with larger rooms. This was our second cruise with Avalon and while we had essentially similar room as before, the rooms on the Creativity were noticeably smaller.
This was our second cruise with Avalon and while both rooms were essentially the same, this room on this cruise was noticeably smaller. The larger room would have been nicer.
