Had previously cruised with Scenic so was interested to see how it compared. We travelled from Amsterdam to Basel and from the embarkation the experience more than lived up to our expectations. The food, service and inclusive tours could not be faulted. The design of the dining area on our ship Artistry 11 I felt superior to the Scenic layouts with a more spacious feel. Our cabin also had a more spacious feel as the twin beds had been separated with a bedside table in between. On previous cruises our beds were pushed together and as we were travelling as 2 single ladies the Avalon layout was far more suitable. Had read reviews that towards the end of the cruise the complimentary beverages were curtailed but this was not our experience and in fact very generous. The staff could not have been more attentive both in the dining and cabin areas. We would definitely travel again with Avalon and felt we had extremely good value for money.
Well designed with separated twin beds which seemed to provide more space than prior cabins where bedding was pushed together
