We chose this cruise, because it appealed to all of the travelers in our group. Our travel agent (Vallier Vacations - excellent, by the way) suggested Avalon because of its excellent reputation. We are happy we did!
Embarkation/disembarkation were flawless. We were unable to explore Paris before or after the cruise, as we had to return to work.
The service aboard the ship was excellent. I believe there was some turnover mid-cruise, but you would never have known it. The others picked up seamlessly.
The ports and shore excursions were wonderful! The tour guides spoke beautiful English and were very knowledgeable.
The entertainment on the ship was fun and it was nice to be able to partake or not (to have the choice). The activities were fun. Everyone seemed to enjoy what they were doing.
We would go on an Avalon cruise again, without hesitation. We were treated so well and it was just a pleasure.
Our cabin was like a 5 star hotel. It was perfect.
